Located in the mountains of Africa, the silverback gorilla is an imposing presence that can grow up to six feet tall. Subsisting on an herbivorous diet, the silverback will consume everything from roots and herbs to bark and bamboo. While they may be intimidating, the silverback gorilla has a reputation for being rather gentle and reserved. That is, unless they are threatened, in which case the alpha male will stand up straight and pound its chest to ward off enemies.

Each 2022 1 oz Congo Silverback Gorilla Coin in this online JM Bullion listing was struck at Scottsdale Mint and will arrive to you in new condition. Produced in collaboration with the Republic of Congo, these coins are considered legal tender. They will arrive to you either in individual plastic flips, a tube of 20, or a Scottsdale Monster Box of 500 coins.

The obverse of 2022 Congo Silver Silverback Gorilla Coins features the Congolese coat of arms. In this design, we see a pair of eleph

ants supporting a decorative shield. Upon the shield, there is a lion holding a torch, and above it, there is a large crown. Across the coin’s border, there are inscriptions that read Republique du Congo, 500 Francs CFA.

The reverse side of 2022 1 oz Silver Silverback Gorilla Coins there is a depiction of a silverback gorilla. In this all-new design, the gorilla appears in a forward-facing position from the waist up as it pounds its chest. Whether it is attempting to ward off an enemy or simply announce its authority to its fellow gorillas, this is definitely a creature you do not want to mess with. Inscriptions read Congo Silverback Gorilla, One Ounce .999 Silver, 2022.

 

2022 The Bear Worlds Wildlife 1oz Silver Bullion Coin

Manufacturer: Bavarian Central mint
Dimensions:
38.6mm
Weight (grams):
31.103
Fineness:
999

The Democratic Republic of the Congo normally uses banknotes for circulation, and does not issue coins in the Congolese Franc currency. However, the country has authorised some foreign mints to issue commemorative and bullion coins under its jurisdiction.

This fourth issue in the annual World’s Wildlife Series is dedicated to the Bear (Ursidae).

The bear is one of the most famous animal species in the world and plays an important role in the mythology and culture of many nations because of its size and strength. The species belongs to the family of mammals and is divided into eight different subspecies. The most well-known subspecies include the polar bear from the Arctic and Northern Canada, the brown bear from North America, Europe and Russia, the giant panda from China, and the American black bear from North America and Mexico. While the animals’ habitat once stretched across the globe, their territory has now been greatly reduced. Ongoing deforestation, illegal poaching, and climate change have led to the classification of some subspecies as endangered.

The reverse design depicts a brown bear in the wild. The majestic animal’s open muzzle reveals its razor-sharp teeth. Around above, the name of the coin: THE BEAR; around below, the name of the series WORLD’S WILDLIFE, divided by a map of the world centred on the continent of Asia.

the obverse of the coin depicts the Coat of Arms of the Democratic Republic of the Congo, which consists of a leopard head surrounded by an elephant tusk to the left and a spear to the right. On a ribbon below, the national motto JUSTICE PAIX TRAVAIL (from French: Justice, Peace, Work), below the Coat of Arms, in small letters the precious metal of the coin: 1 oz Ag 999.9 (one troy ounce of 99.99% silver; the name of the country: REPUBLIQUE DEMOCATIQUE DU CONGO, the nominal face value of the coin: · 20 FRANCS ·.

With the release of the Big Five II Series, the South African Mint continues the success story of a coveted classic. Once again,

The Series includes a total of five coins, all dedicated to South Africa’s impressive wildlife. The animals known as the “Big Five” – Elephant – Lion – Buffalo – Rhino – Leopard – are considered emblems and ambassadors of this culturally rich country and represent the African fauna. The first issue is dedicated to the Elephant. The motive of the silver coin shows a detailed close-up of the head of an adult elephant. The inscriptions “SOUTH AFRICA”, “BIG FIVE 2021” and the South African coat of arms are also part of the design.

The African lion (Panthera leo) is the largest and most important land predator in Africa. Due to his enormous strength and graceful appearance, the lion is generally considered the “king of animals” – a term that originates from old fairy tales and fables. Since then, the feline predator has been a symbol of power and dominance and has adorned countless coats of arms and flags up to this very day. The impressive roar of the lion can be heard up to 8 kilometers away and is used for communication within the pack members. In the wild, the lion can live up to 20 years – but to this day, the threat from poachers remains great. The Big Five II Lion silver coin in uncirculated quality is limited to only 15,000 pieces worldwide and will be delivered in an illustrated blistercard.

Manufacturer: South African Mint
Dimensions:
38.7mm
Weight (grams):
31.10300
Fineness:
999

The 2022 Krugerrand continues this legendary tradition in a new metal. Much like its gold sibling, the Silver Krugerrand offers investors a great way to own low-premium bullion. Whereas the 2017 Silver Krugerrand was marketed as a higher-premium collector coin, the 2022 as was the 2018, 2019 2020, & 2021 editions were priced at a slim margin over melt. Its market premium is comparable to the Silver Maple Leaf, Britannia, Kangaroo, and Philharmonic. Unlike the other sovereign coins in its class, however, the Krugerrand offers multi-generational demand and recognition. Gold investors have turned to the Krugerrand for over 50 years; now they can own this trusted coin in silver too.

The 2022 1 oz Silver Krugerrand also features its face value as part of the obverse design. The original reverse design of a leaping springbok antelope is also sharper and more defined thanks to the latest computer technology and laser etching techniques. The obverse of this prestigious 2022 silver coin features the well-known portrait of Paul Kruger by Otto Schultz.

The Liopleurodon belongs to the genus of pliosaurs from the Middle to Upper Jurassic period and lived in Europe and South America. It could reach an average length of 12 meters and is thus considered the largest scientifically described pliosaur. According to researchers, their powerful jaws and strong teeth indicate that they fed less on fish and more on larger prey such as other marine reptiles. As a result, they were probably among the apex predators of their time. The first evidence of the species was discovered in 1873 by Henri-Émile Sauvage from a single tooth near Boulogne-sur-Mer in northern France.

The series includes two coins: the Roaring Lion and the Tree of Life. Each coin is annually produced in all three precious metals and released at different times in the year.

Something that may be unknown about this coin is the hidden “truth” included on every coin. This notable feature adds great value to the series for many customers. Each year, the “truth” changes. The Roaring Lion is released earlier in the year and features the first half of the Truth with the Tree of Life featuring the second half of the Truth.

The redesign of the American Silver Eagle coin took several months across 2020 for the US Mint to narrow down. The original list of possible designs considered by coinage groups and the US Mint included some 35 different designs. In the end, a new depiction of the American bald eagle in its natural element was chosen to replace John Mercantis heraldic eagle. Emily Damstra is the designer of the new reverse image for the collection. The enhanced image of Walking Liberty on the obverse includes the reintroduction of Adolph A. Weinman’s artistic signature mark on the field, bringing the modern design closer to the original 1916 image.

The obverse side of the 2022 American Silver Eagle Type 2 Coin features the Walking Liberty design from Adolph A. Weinman.

Now featured in a more life-like design, the American bald eagle swoops down into view with its wings flexed behind its back and a large oak branch in its talons.

The sixth release in the series is this 2022-dated medal depicting the warrior Tigris. Minted in a full ounce of highly pure 99.9% fine silver, it shows the battle-hardened guardian dressed in armor and regalia reflective of the tiger. The sacred weapon he holds in his left hand is a halberd, a two-handed medieval pole weapon that consists of an axe blade topped with a spike and a hook on the back that’s mounted on a long shaft. This weapon was particularly useful in snagging mounted opponents and yanking them to the ground. A forest of bamboo can be seen in the background while a bare-chested, muscle-rippling Tigris surveys what lies ahead of him from the top of a rocky escarpment.

The Silver Pandas were first minted in 1983. The first 3 years of mintage were in proof quality condition, and had a limited mintage of 10,000 pieces for each year. No Silver Pandas were struck in 1986, but they have been minted every year since then. Each year, the design of the panda changes making them highly collectible. The only year they didn’t change designs was 2002, which used the same design as 2001.

The People’s Republic of China issues and guarantees the quality of each Silver Panda coin. Silver Panda coins are minted from several mints each year. Those mints include but are not limited to Shenzhen, Shanghai and Shenyang. Unlike the U.S. Mint, these Chinese Mints do not incorporate mint marks to distinguish the difference between each mint. Instead, these mints are known for having minor differences in the design of the coin such as font size, bamboo length and designs of the temple in certain year’s mintages.

2022 Aphrodite Gods of Olympus Tuvalu 1oz Silver Bullion Coin

Manufacturer: Perth Mint
Dimensions: 40.6 mm
Weight (grams): 31.103
Fineness: 999

The sixth coin of the all-new Tuvalu Gods of Olympus Series is now available, In Greek mythology, Aphrodite was worshipped as the goddess of love, pleasure, and beauty, exciting passion in the hearts of gods and men.

Aphrodite is the Greek goddess of love, beauty, pleasure, and procreation. Her Roman equivalent is the goddess Venus and she is identified with the planet of the same name. As with many ancient Greek deities, there is more than one story about her origins. According to Hesiod’s Theogony, she was born when Cronus cut off Uranus’s genitals and threw them into the sea, and she arose from the sea foam (aphros). According to Homer’s Iliad, she is the daughter of Zeus and Dione. According to Plato (Symposium, 180e), these two origins were of entirely separate entities: Aphrodite Ourania and Aphrodite Pandemos.

Because of her beauty, other gods feared that their rivalry over her would interrupt the peace among them and lead to war, so Zeus married her to Hephaestus, who, because of his ugliness and deformity, was not seen as a threat. Aphrodite had many lovers—both gods, such as Ares, and men, such as Anchises. Aphrodite is also known as Cytherea (Lady of Cythera) and Cypris (Lady of Cyprus) after the two cult sites, Cythera and Cyprus, which claimed to be her place of birth. Myrtle, doves, sparrows, horses, and swans were said to be sacred to her. The ancient Greeks identified her with the Ancient Egyptian goddess Hathor.

The Tuvaluan Dollar is the currency of Tuvalu – a small nation in the Pacific Ocean. Tuvalu has never had banknotes of its own, and has been issuing coins since 1976; these circulate together with coins of the Australian Dollar, which is also legal tender in the country, and to which the Tuvaluan Dollar is pegged.

The swan is an iconic species that is so synonymous with The Perth Mint itself that it even appears in the mint?s logo. The Perth Mint?s operations are situated in the heart of Perth, the capital and largest city of Western Australia. Founded in 1829 on the shores of the Swan River, the original colony in the territory was in fact called Swan River Colony, the location of which is now Perth.

Perth grew rapidly in the late 19th century thanks to its rich deposits of natural resources such as oil, gas and perhaps most of all, Gold. From its origins The Perth Mint is in many ways personified by the Swan, a regal waterfowl that appears on the flag of Western Australia and symbolizes timelessness, elegance and beauty, much like the standard of coins produced by the Perth Mint itself.

The Perth Mint has a phenomenal reputation for producing high quality Silver bullion that also provides collectors the ability to collect an entire series that showcases different designs. Customers worldwide collect the Lunars, Kookaburras and Koalas due to their resell values and collectibility.

Swans are often a symbol of love and fidelity due to their long-lasting monogamous relationships. Swans are almost entirely herbivorous, though they will eat small amounts of aquatic animals. There are around seven different species of swan found around the world. Swans are classified as a threatened species mostly due to hunting and habitat loss. Pollution is also a contributing factor.

The Perth Mint is celebrating the 35th anniversary of the original Street Fighter arcade franchise with the release of character-themed coins in 2022. In 1987, Street Fighter changed the face of arcade gaming and introduced what would become one of the most popular genres in the history of video games: fighter games. The second release in this new series depicts Chin Li.

The characters of Street Fighter are some of the most instantly recognizable creations in all of gaming: arguably none more so than the franchise’s first female fighter and major protagonist Chun-Li, who spent years’ worth of storylines across multiple games in an intense feud with the equally-iconic antagonist M. Bison. Chun-Li’s resourceful and heroic nature, superhuman high-kicking style and graceful design made her an instant fan favorite and an obvious choice for the earliest issues in the Street Fighter Characters series from the Pert Mint.

Street Fighter is one of the most popular video game franchises of all time. The 1987 release was followed up by Street Fighter II, a direct successor, in 1991. Beyond the arcade, various other versions of the game have been released on consoles from the Commodore 64 and Atari ST to the PlayStation 2, Xbox, Playstation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and Windows PC games.

On the obverse of 2022 1 oz Tuvalu Silver Street Fighter Ryu Coins is an effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty is shown here in right-profile relief wearing the Girls of Great Britain and Ireland Tiara. This iconic fourth-generation portrait of the Queen was created in 1998 by Ian Rank-Broadley for the Royal Mint and has proliferated across coinage for various Commonwealth Nations.

Mary Read was born in London in 1685 or 1690 as an illegitimate child.

Since the benefits of living as a man did not escape Mary, she continued to dress up and call herself “Mark.” In this way, she first served in the military and then signed on with a merchant ship that was captured by pirates en route to the Caribbean, whom she voluntarily followed. In 1720 she met Anne Bonny and John Rackham. Numerous myths have grown up around the adventurous love story between the two women that resulted from this encounter. In 1720, the pirate crew was ambushed and overpowered. Rackham was executed, whereas Anne Bonny and Mary Read were initially imprisoned due to alleged pregnancies. Mary Read died there of a fever.

Manufacturer: Perth Mint
Dimensions: 40.6 mm
Weight (grams): 31.103
Fineness: 999

One of the worlds most famous secret agents is the fictional character known as James Bond. Known within the circles of British intelligence as 007, Bond solves crimes around the world and helps avert disaster with his combat skills and charm. Introduced to readers in the 1950s by Ian Fleming, since 1962, Bond has graced the big screen in theaters around the globe.

Ian Fleming came up with the James Bond character in 1953. Over the course of the next decade of his life, until his death in 1964, Fleming would feature this impressive character in 12 novels and two short-story collections. Following his death, other authors have been authorized to produce additional Bond novels or stories. The most recent of these was written by Anthony Horowitz and published in 2018.

Once James Bond hit the big screen, audiences around the world began to associate the actors who portrayed Bond with the character. Sean Connery was the first James Bond and is, arguably, the greatest Bond. He portrayed Bond in the first five consecutive films from 1962 to 1967. After skipping the sixth Bond film, Connery returned in 1971 to portray the secret agent once again in the seventh film. Connery is tied with Roger Moore for the most times in the role at seven. In addition to appearing in the first five and six of the first seven, Connery is the only Bond from Eon Productions films to feature in a non-Eon Productions film, playing Bond a seventh time in Never Say Never Again in 1983. With that appearance, Connery took on the role seven times across three decades.

2022 George & Dragon Ascension Islands 1oz Silver Bullion Coin

Manufacturer: Commonwealth Mint
Dimensions:
38.6 mm x 2.3mm
Weight (grams):
31.1
Fineness:
999

When Great Britain struck its first Gold Sovereign in 1817, King George III was still wearing a powdered wig. Fast forward 200 years and no one, but no one would be caught dead wearing the fluffy, long out-of-date hairpiece! Styles and trends have changed dramatically since then, but one thing has remained constant: Benedetto Pistrucci’s Saint George and the Dragon design that appeared on that first Gold Sovereign has been used by every subsequent British monarch to this day.

The first release in the Modern Masters Trilogy looks at the iconic Saint George and the Dragon design through the eyes of Jody Clark, one of the coin world’s brightest rising stars. At the youthful age of 33, Clark is already famous for creating the fifth definitive portrait of Queen Elizabeth II during his time as an engraver at the Royal Mint. A renowned international artist, Clark was the winner of the 2014 flagship Britannia collection and the designer of the critically acclaimed Queen’s Beast collection. His rendition of Saint George and the Dragon shows the duel between man and beast. The dragon falls back, claws raised menacingly and teeth ready to strike. Saint George’s horse rears back, as the knight leans forward to plunge his spear into the dragons’ heart. A master of detail, Clark’s design is so detailed that you can see individual strands from the horse’s tail and each scale on the dragon’s hide can be easily identified. A stylized Celtic border surrounds the design.

The design is a splendidly fluid counterpart to Pistrucci’s original design. For a fee of 100 guineas Pistrucci created a coin regarded by some as the most beautiful ever produced with a timeless motif that evoked visions of ancient Greek warriors. It depicts Saint George wearing nothing but a helmet in a dynamic portrayal that shows the Saint astride his horse as it tramples the dragon beneath its hooves. Pistrucci worked from life, using a hotel waiter to pose as England’s patron saint for his iconic engraving. The prestigious commission left Pistrucci in prime position to assume the vacant post of Chief Engraver at the Royal Mint. But while he assumed the duties of Chief Engraver, his status as a foreigner left the Italian-born artist barred from the position. An ambitious but polarizing character, Pistrucci stoked rivalries, survived a stabbing by a jealous rival, and left an indelible mark on British coinage.

This coin depicts the mythical Pegasus – a brilliant, white stallion with powerful wings that was born from the blood of the gorgon known as Medusa

There are two origin stories within Greek mythology that explain the appearance of Pegasus. One of these, from Archaic Greek mythology, suggests that Pegasus was the offspring of Medusa, who in these stories was actually a mare. Later myths within Archaic Greek mythology position Pegasus as being foaled from the blood of Medusa as she was decapitated by Perseus. On the other hand, Classical Greek mythology suggests that the Olympian god known as Poseidon was the father of Pegasus.

Saint Helena is a small island in the South Atlantic Ocean which is part of the British overseas territory of Saint Helena, Ascension and Tristan da Cunha. The currency of the island is the Saint Helena pound, fixed at parity with the pound sterling. The island has authorised some private mints to issue coins under its jurisdiction, which come in a variety of sizes – including in the popular silver ounce (1 oz silver) format, usually denominated as £1.

East India Company Collections introduces a new coin series which will tell the stories of the Goddesses of Ancient Greek and Norse mythology.

Despite originating in ancient myths and legends, Goddesses inform modern life perhaps more than we realize. Their mythology, religious legends, history and folk tales influence movies, TV shows, museum exhibits and famous brands such as cameras and running shoes.

Theirs are stories of intricate family sagas, wars fought by powerful dynasties, love found and lost, the worlds of nature and magic and the realms of gods and men, featuring fantastical creatures and characters who inspire our imaginations and codes of living. Morals, virtues, beliefs and ethics are all integral to the mythology of the Goddesses.

The series starts with Hera, wife and sister of the mighty Zeus, one of the twelve principal deities of the Greek pantheon who lived upon Mount Olympus.“Queen of the Immortals is she, surpassing all in beauty: she is the sister and wife of loud-thundering Zeus, the glorious one whom all the blessed throughout high Olympos reverence and honour even as Zeus who delights in thunder.”

Saint Helena is a small island in the South Atlantic Ocean which is part of the British overseas territory of Saint Helena, Ascension and Tristan da Cunha. The currency of the island is the Saint Helena pound, fixed at parity with the pound sterling. The island has authorised some private mints to issue coins under its jurisdiction, which come in a variety of sizes – including in the popular silver ounce (1 oz silver) format, usually denominated as £1.

This premium bullion coin is part of the Cash Coin Collection featuring the wildlife of various countries, and has The Rhino as a representative of Indian Wildlife.

The Indian rhinoceros (Rhinoceros unicornis), also called the Indian rhino, greater one-horned rhinoceros or great Indian rhinoceros, is a rhinoceros species native to the Indian subcontinent. It is listed as Vulnerable on the IUCN Red List, as populations are fragmented and restricted to less than 20,000 km2. As of August 2018, the global population was estimated to comprise 3,588 individuals, including 2,939 individuals in India and 649 in Nepal. Kaziranga National Park alone had an estimated population of 2,048 rhinos in 2009. Pobitora Wildlife Sanctuary in Assam has the highest density of Indian rhinos in the world with 84 individuals in an area of 38.80 km2 in 2009.

Indian rhinos once ranged throughout the entire stretch of the Indo-Gangetic Plain, but excessive hunting and agricultural development reduced its range drastically to 11 sites in northern India and southern Nepal. In the early 1990s, between 1,870 and 1,895 Indian rhinos were estimated to have been alive. Since then, numbers have increased due to conservation measures taken by the government. Nearly 85% of the global Indian rhinoceros population is concentrated in Assam, where Kaziranga National Park contains 70% of rhino population.

The coins in the series are designed by Nick Martin, based on drawings of the animals by Veronica Mackinnon.

The reverse features a detailed image of an Indian rhinoceros, its head turned to left, against a patterned background, Around the rim, the inscription ONE OUNCE · CASH · 999 SILVER.

Una is a beautiful princess who’s parents and kingdom are captured by a ferocious dragon. She sets out on a quest to free them from the dragon’s clutches, taking her on an epic journey of battles, adventure, and romance. During her quest, she faces many challenges that test her humility and determination, including being confronted by a fierce lion. The lion is so taken by her beauty and purity that he abandons his attack on her, becoming her protector and loyal companion.

Una enlists the help of a knight to help her slay the Dragon. Steadfast and true to her cause, Una’s virtues inspire the knight to slay the dragon and fulfil his destiny as the hero St George, the patron saint of England. This epic tale is the creation of celebrated English poet Edmund Spencer.

A mainstay of British coinage for centuries, the Royal Arms is a majestic symbol of strength and majesty which represents the illustrious history of monarchy and heraldry in the United Kingdom.

First appearing in 1983, the iconic design by Eric Sewell has been reinterpreted by Timothy Noad for 2022. This design exemplifies the royal heritage which each monarch inherits during their reign and features the heraldic devices which have lasted through the ages, such as the Lion of England and Unicorn of Scotland supporting the shield.

Below the shield, a thistle, Tudor rose and shamrock are depicted, which represents Scotland, England and Ireland. Details of the coin’s weight, fineness and year-date are also shown.

Introducing the third coin in the Mythical Forest series, a tribute to the power and mysticism of trees. The linden tree is a symbol of femininity, life and vitality. In Germanic mythology, it was associated with Freyja, the goddess of love and fertility. The linden is also a tree of lovers, under which they danced and celebrated, so it was planted in the central part of villages.

Planting a linden tree commemorated important events, such as a weddings or childbirths. Coffins were also made from its wood to ensure a peaceful sleep after death. Since the linden tree was associated with peace, it was also a good material for cradles. People took shelter under the tree during storms, believing it protected them from lightning. Touching the bark of the linden tree, on the other hand, was believed to draw diseases out of people and its health properties are widely known and valued even today.

On the obverse of the coin Germania Mint presents a linden leaf and its flower. It was the inflorescence of this long-lived tree that was used in herbalism and natural medicine. The reverse depicts a double-headed eagle, already familiar to Collectors, symbolizing the past and the future. The lightnings in its claws are a divine attribute, signifying the power to create and destroy.

Each piece of the 2022 Linden Leaf 1 oz Silver BU is housed in a lens capsule, that allows you to admire the coin’s design even more. The included Certificate of Authenticity contains all the necessary information and guarantees the coin’s originality.

The 2022 Malta Knights of the Past 5 Euro 1 oz Silver BU is the second commemorative coin created thanks to the close cooperation between Central Bank of Malta and Germania Mint. The series of unique bullion coins in a modern way refers to the traditions of the Order of Malta and its fortunes in the history of Europe.

European pilgrims, weary and wounded in their struggle for freedom of belief, could count on the help of the Knights Hospitaller. In the hospice built in the 11th century in Jerusalem many needy people found shelter and solace. Not only did the Knights organise the first hospitals on the European continent, bringing help to thousands of the afflicted, but they also gathered an excellent navy. They led crusades which, after many victories and defeats, brought them to Malta. Here they built a port, a fortress, a hospital and founded a monastic state. The impressive military potential of the Order of Malta became the inspiration for the series of bullion coins, which Germania Mint issues in cooperation with the Central Bank of Malta. The high quality of minting and precious metals harmonizes with an artistic vision – a modern look at the history of the Knights of Malta.

The obverse of the second coin in the series depicts the Knights of Malta in confrontation with the invaders, during the Great Siege of Malta in 1565 – the most important battle in the island’s history and one of the key ones for Europe. The coin’s reverse, as in 2021, depicts the Central Bank of Malta coat of arms on a shield held by a Maltese knight.

The 2022 Malta Knights of the Past 5 Euro 1 oz Silver BU coin will be issued in an edition of 15,000 pieces, along with a Certificate of Authenticity and blisterpack.

Eighth edition of a new series “THE GIANTS OF THE ICE AGE”. The entire series consists of eight animals in a period of 4 years. The worldwide circulation of only 15,000. The coins are individually delivered in a capsule.
New Series – Giants of the Ice Age

The Cave Lion (Panthera spelaea) evolved from P. fossilis about 460,000 years ago in central Europe during the late Saalian glaciation or early Eemian and would have been common throughout Eurasia from 450,000 to 13,000 years ago, when it went extinct.

Analysis of fossil bone samples revealed that it was highly distinct and genetically isolated from the modern lion (Panthera leo) occurring in Africa and Central Asia. Panthera spelaea is thought to have been one of the largest lion species. The skeleton of an adult male found in 1985 near Siegsdorf in Germany had a shoulder height of around 1.2 m and a head-body length of 2.1 m without the tail, similar in size to large modern lions, and larger examples have been found, with the heaviest estimated to weigh 339 kg.

The cave lion was probably predominantly found in open habitats such as steppe and grasslands, although it would also have occurred in open woodlands as well. It was one of the keystone species of the mammoth steppe, being one of the main apex predators alongside grey wolf, cave hyena and brown bear. Cave bear cubs, reindeer and other cervids were prominent in the diet of cave lions.

The Giants of the Ice Age series commemorates the eight extinct animals which ones roamed the earth during the last ice age, which took place during the Pleistocene Era.

In Chinese cosmology, the universe creates itself out of a primary chaos of material energy, organized into the cycles of Yin and Yang and formed into objects and lives. Yin is the receptive and Yang the active principle, Humanity has already explored much of our planet Earth. Now, we are not only focusing outwards into space, but inwards into our consciousness as well. What is the relationship between our own selves and the great vastness beyond?

COIN INFORMATION

Tokelau, known previously as the Tokelau Islands, is a dependent territory of New Zealand in the southern Pacific Ocean. It uses the New Zealand Dollar as circulation currency, but has been issuing a variety of non-circulating coins since 1978, and has also authorised some foreign mints to issue bullion coins under its jurisdiction. The silver ounce (abbreviated as 1 oz) is an internationally popular format, and is denominated as Five Dollars.

This is the third design in the Icon series issued by the Pressburg Mint, and features Marilyn Monroe (1926 – 1962) – a famous American actress, singer, and model. The mint says about the series:
Icon in its many meanings – as a Greek word for image, as a work of art, as a characteristic of a famous person or a thing that represents something of importance.

Marilyn Monroe (born Norma Jeane Mortenson; June 1, 1926 – August 4, 1962) was an American actress, singer, and model. Famous for playing comedic “blonde bombshell” characters, she became one of the most popular sex symbols of the 1950s and early 1960s, as well as an emblem of the era’s sexual revolution. She was a top-billed actress for a decade, and her films grossed $200 million (equivalent to $2 billion in 2021) by the time of her death in 1962. Long after her death, Monroe remains a major icon of pop culture. In 1999, the American Film Institute ranked her sixth on their list of the greatest female screen legends from the Golden Age of Hollywood.

Crown Your Collection With The Bohemian Lion

The regal and powerful lion on this coin seems to bound from its surface. The new, one-year-only design shows a proud, heavily maned lion facing you from behind deep, piercing eyes. Atop its tawny head rests the Crown of Saint Wenceslas, a crown that forms part of the Bohemian Crown Jewels. Bohemia is now part of the Czech Republic, and the Bohemian Crown Jewels are stored in an undisclosed location within Prague’s St. Vitus Cathedral. The vault is sealed with seven locks whose keys are held by seven different government and religious officials. The final design element is a sprig from a Linden Tree, the Czech Republic’s national tree.

The lion became part of Bohemian heraldry thank to the legendary story of Prince Bruncvik. According to the tale, Bruncvik was a mythical prince who traveled to Africa, where he helped a lion defeat a dragon. It’s one of the most famous stories of how the exotic lion became symbol of the Czech Republic. And, while a decidedly Czech theme, this coin is actually $2 legal Tender in Niue, a small island nation in the South Pacific Ocean that licensed that these coins be struck by the Czech Mint.

“Germania” is the Latin term for Germany, from which the name “Germany” is used in English language today. Due to the connection with patriotic feelings, this word was present mainly in German literature and poetry. In ancient times the area inhabited by Germans east of the Rhine and north of the Danube rivers was called Germania. At that time its first personifications on coins and reliefs appeared, depicting a brave woman – the guardian of the nation.

Obverse

Germania, clad in armour and a dress moved by the sea breeze, steps on the mainland with her characteristic volatility and self-confidence.

Tesla was truly a remarkable person that devoted his life to discovery while additionally relishing the role of showmanship. Tesla became well known as an inventor and would even demonstrate his achievements to celebrities and wealthy patrons at his lab, and was noted for his showmanship at public lectures.

Born and raised in the Austrian Empire, Tesla received an advanced education in engineering and physics in the 1870s and gained practical experience in the early 1880s working in telephony and at Continental Edison in the new electric power industry. He emigrated to the United States in 1884, where he would become a naturalized citizen. He worked for the Edison Machine Works in New York City a short time before he struck out on his own.

In 1887, Tesla met two investors who agreed to back the formation of the Tesla Electric Company. He set up a laboratory in Manhattan, where he developed the alternating current induction motor, which solved a number of technical problems that had bedeviled other designs. When Tesla demonstrated his device at an engineering meeting, the Westinghouse Company made arrangements to license the technology, providing an upfront payment and royalties on each horsepower generated.

The so-called “War of the Currents” was raging in the late 1880s. Thomas Edison promoted direct current, asserting that it was safer than AC. George Westinghouse backed AC, since it could transmit power over long distances. Because the two were undercutting each other’s prices, Westinghouse lacked capital. He explained the difficulty and asked Tesla to sell his patents to him for a single lump sum, to which Tesla agreed, forgoing what would have been a vast fortune had he held on to them.

With the World’s Columbian Exposition of 1893 looming in Chicago, Westinghouse asked Tesla to help supply power; they’d have a huge platform for demonstrating the merits of AC. Tesla helped the fair illuminate more light bulbs than could be found in the entire city of Chicago, and wowed audiences with a variety of wonders, including an electric light that required no wires. Later Tesla also helped Westinghouse win a contract to generate electrical power at Niagara Falls, helping to build the first large-scale AC power plant in the world.

Tesla lived in a time when the world demanded results that were practical and profitable rather than revolutionary. To this point, Tesla spent most of his career being broke and eventually died penniless and alone in a New York City hotel room.

One of Tesla’s final gifts to the world was a tower near New York City that would have provided free wireless energy to the entire world. The man who financed the construction of the tower shut it down when he learned that there would be no way to regulate the energy which would mean no return of profit on his investment.

It is said that he held over 300 patents with some of his most notable being the alternating current, electric motors, remote control, television, radio, x-rays, cell phones, robotics, lasers, turbine engines, magnetic propulsion, drones, solar power adaptations, weather manipulation, particle beams and electromagnetic energy (Tesla coil).

Thanks to his obsession with cleanliness, the world’s first ozone generator was designed and patented by Nikola Tesla in 1886. A few years later, the Tesla Ozone Company was founded, which started large-scale production of ozone generating equipment for medical purposes and by 1915 there were already around 49 large-scale ozone installations for water treatment in Europe.

The reverse shows the iconic image of Nikola Tesla with his hand resting on his face. Below the image is the inscription “Electrical Visionary” and “Powering The Future”, as well as Nikola Tesla’s name in English and Serbian Cyrillic.

The obverse features the Coat of Arms of the Republic of Serbia, with Nikola Tesla’s invention, the Ozone Generator, in the central position. Additionally, the coin states the weight, the metal sample, and the denomination.

“Panta Rhei” – Everything flows and things come and go. When it comes to value, precious metals have always held a crucial position in the world of finance. Nowadays, a safe haven at the very least, a financial norm in the past. Silver currently holds an especially important position in the financial world and we believe it will continue to do so for a long time.

Now and forever.

Heraclitus recognized the fundamental changing of objects with the flow of time (i.e., impermanence) and the philosophical issue of becoming.

He is credited with the phrase πάντα ῥεῖ (panta rhei) “everything flows.”This famous aphorism used to characterize Heraclitus’ thought comes from Simplicius, a neoplatonist, and from Plato’s Cratylus. The word rhei (as in rheology) is the Greek word for “to stream”, and is etymologically related to Rhea according to Plato’s Cratylus. Compare with the Latin adages Omnia mutantur and Tempora mutantur (8 AD) and the Buddhist and Hindu concepts of anicca.

On the goddess’ armor the rune Algiz is engraved – its function is to protect and give a sense of security, openness and support. Hildegard is accompanied by a wolf, which can also be seen in the background of the coin – on a rock, howling to the moon. We encourage you to look for other hidden details on the coin related to Germanic mythology.

The reverse presents a completely new design, combining both the signature Germania Mint double-headed eagle, as well as new Germanic runes and a howling wolf.

Pioneer 10 – The first man-made object that left our solar system began its journey on March 3, 1972. It carries a gold-anodized aluminium plaque in case the spacecraft is ever found by intelligent life-forms from another planetary system.

Pioneer 10 would travel through the asteroid belt and head towards Jupiter, at speeds of up to 80,000 mph. It was thrown like a slingshot out of the solar system to explore the great beyond. On its way, it would collect data on our solar system that had never been gathered before. It would also carry the gold-plated Pioneer Plaque a “galactic greeting card” for any extraterrestrial life that might find it.

“It will be the oldest artifact of mankind,” explained Astronomer Carl Sagan, who helped bring the project to fruition, “A billion years from now, mountain building and erosion will have destroyed everything on the Earth, but this plaque will remain intact.”

Inspired by Greek and Roman sculpture, artist Linda Sagan Carl’s wife and Frank Drake, an astronomer who worked with Sagan at NASA, began to sketch out a visual message that could be understood by extraterrestrials that might encounter it. And, like any great

Introduction, the ‘greeting card’ begins with something that human beings and extraterrestrials have in common: hydrogen, the most prevalent element in the universe. Because hydrogen decays at a certain rate that defines a unit of time 21 seconds Sagan and Drake used it as a ‘universal’ yardstick for other measurements on the plaque particularly the Pulsar Map that identified the location of Earth in the known galaxy, Using the unit of 21, which can be multiplied by the binary digits represented by the small tick marks both in the pulsar map and in the diagram of the solar system,

Sagan and Drake built a system of symbolism, inspired by ‘Adam and Eve’, geared towards scientifically educated extraterrestrial inhabitants.

Anodized aluminium was a relatively high tech material at the time, so it was chosen for its durability. To withstand any potential obstructions during the journey through the asteroid belt, the aluminium was plated in thick gold, which was then engraved with Sagan and Drake’s artwork.

The finished plaque was mounted on the front of the pioneer spacecraft, and just days later, possibly the last time it was to be seen by human eyes, it was launched into the cosmos to float forever through infinite space, waiting to be found by friendly extraterrestrial beings.

The Armenian Silver Noahs Ark Series often flies under the radar for some investors. This collection launched in 2011 with three silver bullion coins, and has since expanded to include four additional weights in silver with a more recent introduction of gold bullion coins in the series.

Geiger Edelmetalle, a mint located in Germany, issues the coins of the Armenian Noahs Ark Series on behalf of the Republic of Armenia. The coins were introduced in 2011 at a time when silver hit its highest price in history. The series started that year with 1 oz, 1/2 oz, and 1/4 oz silver options available.

In 2012, the collection grew to feature four new silver coin weights above the 1 oz silver option. These included 5 oz, 10 oz, 1 Kilo, and 5 Kilo silver coins for investors. All seven coins have been available on an annual basis since that time with no breaks in production for any weight. The 1 oz silver coin has had the highest mintage among the seven in every year except for 2018 when the 1/2 oz silver coin sold roughly 63,000 more coins than the 1 oz specimen.

On the obverse of 2022 Armenian Silver Noahs Ark Coins is a depiction of the national coat of arms. The national emblem currently in use by the Republic of Armenia is relatively new and was adopted following the fall of the Soviet Union in the early 1990s.

The reverse side of 2022 1 oz Silver Noahs Ark Coins features an image of the famed biblical ark. Noahs Ark, it is said, was built by Noah and the members of his family to help preserve their lives and the lives of two of every kind of animal on Earth. God had given Noah these instructions to ensure humanity and natural wildlife could continue to prosper once he cleansed the Earth of its sins, and those who had strayed from his guidance.

Disney’s Aladdin 30th Anniversary
On November 11, 1992, Disney released Aladdin to theaters worldwide. The musical film would be the first animated feature to generate over half a billion in box office sales and become the highest-grossing animated film of all time before the release of The Lion King. Aladdin’s delightful take on an Arab folktale combined with humor and catchy tunes made the film a treasure of entertainment. The song “A Whole New World” would win a Grammy for Song of the Year.

The titular character Aladdin begins as a lowly “street rat” of the desert city of Agrabah where he unwittingly gets drawn into a plot of the scheming royal vizier, Jafar. He had intended to use Aladdin to gain entry into the Cave of Wonders to obtain the magical lamp of the Genie. Aladdin’s monkey Abu can’t resist the forbidden treasures, which leads to dire consequences, but not before Aladdin is able to retrieve the magic lamp. Jafar, still disguised as an old man, demands that Aladdin throw him the lamp before he’ll help him out of the collapsing Cave of Wonders.

Cats and humans have a long history of living together (or in a cat’s case, tolerating humans!) that can be traced back to as early as 7500 BC. More subtle than dogs in exhibiting their love for their owners, cats are furry companions that have filled our lives with oodles of joy — even if they ignore us when we call them and turn their noses up at that expensive new food we bought for them. In fact, according to a national pet owners survey, more than 42 million households in the United States have at least one cat. Now you can add another feline to your household with this coin, the first release in a new silver bullion series dedicated to all things related to the domesticated Felidae family.

Released by the South Pacific Ocean island nation of Fiji, these coins depict an all-American housecat as it alertly surveys its backyard domain. Its eyes are wide and zeroed in on something in the distance, seemingly oblivious to the tall grasses and flowers that surround the sleek tabby. The coin’s obverse shows the Fiji Coat of Arms along with the coin’s denomination, year date and silver content.

Obverse: Of the coin shows at its centre the Coat of Arms of Fiji, as adopted in 1908 by a Royal Warrant, consisting of a shield divided quarterly by the Cross of St. George and charged with lion at the top, supported by two Fijian warriors, one on each side – one clutching a spear and one holding a totokia club, and topped with a takia – a traditional Fijian outrigger canoe, in full sail. The objects on the Coat of Arms carry cultural, political, and regional meanings. The Cross of St. George and the lion at the top represent the United Kingdom, the former colonial power that ruled over Fiji. The cacao pod held in the lion’s paw, along with the sugarcane, coconut palm and bananas occupying three of the four quadrants, represent the country’s natural resource. The bottom left quadrant contains a dove that symbolises peace. At the bottom is the country’s motto: Rerevaka na kalou ka doka na Tui; translated from Fijian: Fear God and honour the Queen. On the left and right, separated by the Coat of Arms, the precious metal content: 1oz .999 FINE SILVER (one troy ounce of 99.9% silver). Around above, the name of the country and the date of issue: FIJI 2022; around below, the face value

Scrooge McDuck
In 1947, Scrooge McDuck made his first appearance in the Disney comic “Christmas on Bear Mountain” where he began his role as Donald Duck’s uncle. In this first story, he appears much more like his namesake, Ebenezer Scrooge from Charles Dicken’s A Christmas Carol, where his bitterness and dislike for humanity is on full display. However, further development of the character would make him into the more likable and outgoing business tycoon we’ve come to know and love. In cartoon form, Scrooge would be portrayed as a Scottish-American based in the fictional city of Duckburg. Scrooge is the founder of McDuck Enterprises and calls himself an “adventure capitalist.” His treasure-seeking exploits were the subject of many episodes of the cartoon series DuckTales. While known for his exclamatory one-liners and opulent displays of over-the-top wealth, Scrooge’s curmudgeonly ways center mostly on demanding high standards of those around him. The Scrooge we know today is fiercely loyal to his family and more benevolent with his wealth than his name implies. The most classic depictions of Scrooge are of him swimming in piles of Gold in his giant money bin in Duckburg.

Samurai () were the hereditary military nobility and officer caste of medieval and early-modern Japan from the late 12th century until their abolition in 1876. They were the well-paid retainers of the daimyo (the great feudal landholders). They had high prestige and special privileges such as wearing two swords and Kiri-sute gomen (right to kill anyone of a lower class in certain situations). They cultivated the bushido codes of martial virtues, indifference to pain, and unflinching loyalty, engaging in many local battles.

Though they had predecessors in earlier military and administrative officers, the samurai truly emerged during the Kamakura shogunate, ruling from c.1185 to 1333. They became the ruling political class, with significant power but also significant responsibility. During the 13th century, the samurai proved themselves as adept warriors against the invading Mongols. During the peaceful Edo era (1603 to 1868), they became the stewards and chamberlains of the daimyo estates, gaining managerial experience and education. In the 1870s, samurai families comprised 5% of the population. As modern militaries emerged in the 19th century, the samurai were rendered increasingly obsolete and very expensive to maintain compared to the average conscript soldier. The Meiji Restoration ended their feudal roles, and they moved into professional and entrepreneurial roles. Their memory and weaponry remain prominent in Japanese popular culture.

The fourth instalment of the series showcases Albert Einstein, who is revered as one of the most influential physicists of all time. He is most known for developing the theory of relativity, first predicting the existence of black holes, and making essential contributions to the development of the theory of quantum mechanics through his explanation of the photoelectric effect and postulation of light quanta. Einstein’s work also heavily influenced the philosophy of science, and he received the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1921 for his contributions to the field of theoretical physics.

The German-born scientist denounced Adolf Hitler due to his pacifist nature and Jewish background. He, along with other major scientists, endorsed a letter sent to President Franklin D. Roosevelt that let him know the Germans were researching nuclear weapons and that the U.S. should be aware and conduct its own research. Einstein, however, firmly opposed using nuclear weapons in war, but feared what the Nazis would do if they weaponized them first, Einstein’s legacy is a testament to his immense intelligence, curiosity, humour and compassion for fellow man. The realms of science and mathematics wouldn’t be where they are today without his contributions.

This coin, produced under license by The Coin Company Australia in cooperation with APMEX, celebrates the 40th anniversary of the iconic E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial film release.

According to Stephen Spielberg, the concept for E.T. evolved out of a question he asked himself about what if an alien from Close Encounters of the Third Kind had stayed behind as a sort of exchange student. He then imagined the character from the perspective of his own childhood and the loneliness he felt during his parent’s divorce. Thus, E.T. was created as a friendly extra-terrestrial being who was left behind on Earth, but aided by the young boy Elliot to return home. In the course of this encounter, a unique friendship would emerge to the benefit of both characters and the delight of audiences around the world.

E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial first premiered on 26 May 1982 at the Cannes Film Festival and later on 11 June 1982 across the United States. Its success was immediate, even surpassing the first Star Wars movie as the highest-grossing film of all time.

The obverse design displays the iconic scene of the full moon with the silhouette of Elliott and E.T. flying across on a bicycle. The Public Seal of Niue appears at the bottom of the moon face, which takes up the entire obverse, The seal has what looks like a plant arrangement at centre, within a double ornamental circle, itself surrounded by a circle of sea shells. This is crowned with St Edward’s Crown (of the United Kingdom). Around above between the two, the inscription PUBLIC SEAL OF NIUE. Below that, a ribbon carries the motto ATUA NIUE TUKULAGI on two lines, below which two crossed katoua (Niue fighting clubs), Around below, the face value and the date of issue, 2 DOLLARS 2022.

The reverse of the coin features an officially licensed image of E.T. raising his glowing finger while pointing to his glowing heart with the opposite hand. To the left of E.T. is the 40th anniversary logo as a privy mark. To the right of E.T. is the E.T. movie logo, reading (on two lines) E.T. THE EXTRA-TERRESTRIAL.

Star Wars Rebel Alliance Starbird
Following the collapse of the Galactic Republic into the Galactic Empire, an alliance of star systems rebelled and thus began the Galactic Civil War. As a symbol of that alliance, rebel leaders such as Leia Organa would adopt the starbird or phoenix which had appeared informally in anti-Imperial graffiti, in response to the demise of Galen Marek whose family crest bore the same symbol. Marek, an apprentice to Darth Vader, turned from the Dark side and sacrificed himself to protect the leaders who would go on to found the Rebel Alliance. This symbol would appear on the helmets, starships and other equipment of the alliance. Thanks to the leadership of Leia Organa, Admiral Ackbar, Han Solo, Luke Skywalker and many others the Rebellion would eventually be victorious.

As a direct reactionary movement to the formation of the Empire, the Rebel insurgency conducted covert operations on Imperial garrison-worlds and utilized a stateless strategy in conjunction with wolfpack-guerrilla warfare against the Imperial Fleet throughout the galaxy. Capital ships had no place in the Rebellion; they are expensive to build, maintain, and to keep fully crewed. The Rebellion was far too limited in both manpower and resources to justify putting so much of both into a giant target. When the Galactic Empire is capable of always fielding greater numbers and greater firepower, being able to hit high-valued targets and get out is much more important. While the Empire considers all dissent and rebellion as acts of extremism and terrorism in Imperial propaganda, the Alliance is described and portrayed in various Star Wars media as a group of resilient freedom fighters, based on tolerance, self-empowerment, and hope for a better future using insurgency weapons and tactics.

Reverse Features the officially licensed Rebel Alliance Starbird Symbol from Star Wars. The reverse also features the metal content, purity, and the Lucasfilm copyright for further authentication.

Obverse face Displays the Niue coat of arms along with the face value and the year of issue.

2022 Fiji Dogs 1oz 999 Silver Bullion Coin

Manufacturer: Fiji
Dimensions:
40.0mm
Weight (grams):
31.10300
Fineness:
999

The first issue of the new Series Fiji Dogs. The coin was struck from one ounce of 99.9% silver and is issued in a mintage of only 12,000 pieces worldwide. The motive shows a Dog that seems to run towards the viewer, as well as a house and mountains in the background. The name of the series, “DOGS”, is also included in the design. The reverse features the national emblem of Fiji, as well as the weight, fineness and denomination of the coin.

Dogs are generally considered “man’s best friend.” The domestication of the wolf can be dated back more than 100,000 years, making the dog the oldest domestic animal of man. Today, there are about 800 known dog breeds – the Chihuahua is one of the smallest recognized dog breeds, whereas the Great Dane with a withers height of at least 80 cm and the Irish Wolfhound with up to 95 cm are among the largest dog breeds.

The obverse of the silver coin is occupied by Fiji’s national coat of arms, in use since 1908. A shield is placed in the center of the depiction above a banner with the motto of the South Seas state “Rerevaka na Kalou ka doka na Tui.” (Fear God and honor the Queen). In the shield head is a golden, crowned lion with a cocoa pod in its paws. Below, a St. George’s cross divides the shield into four fields. In the four fields there are representatives of the flora and fauna typical of the country: a sugar cane plant, a coconut palm, a dove of peace and a banana tree. The shield is flanked on either side by two warriors in the local loincloths, one armed with a spear and the other with a club. A traditional outrigger boat with a sail is adorned above the shield.

Reverse: The largest part of the depiction is taken up by a dog, which jumps towards the viewer with its snout happily open and its tail raised. Front paws are crossed in the air while he pushes off with powerful hind legs ready for the next leap. He presents his tongue to the viewer as if he is already panting from running so fast. Its long, well-groomed fur flaps in the wind. The background is a mountain backdrop, the slopes of which rise steeply to the right. On the right side, on a hill in front of the mountains, a house nestles against the mountainside. The obverse bears the title of the coin series, “DOGS”.

The reverse displays a triumphant image of a muse stretching her arm towards the sun. Also included in the design is the official coat of arms of Niue, as well as the denomination and year of issue.

Born on December 25, 1642 in the English county of Lincolnshire, Isaac Newton was one of the most important physicists, mathematicians and astronomers in history. With his “Philosophiae Naturalis Principa Mathematica”, he researched the theory of gravity, which made an important contribution to our understanding of the universe and with whose help he explained why an apple falls to the ground. Other areas of research to which Newton devoted himself were optics (refraction of light), algebra, and mechanics. In 1696, he was appointed keeper of the Royal Mint and minted the first ever quarter guinea coin – replacing the scarce five-shilling silver crown. At this time Newton showed great political commitment. He was knighted in 1705 and held the title of “Sir” until his death on March 20, 1726.

The French Indo-China silver Piastre is one of the many successors of the Spanish “piece of Eight” large size silver coins that had circulated in many parts of Asia since the seventeenth century. Arising from a need by many nations to develop commerce and trade with the Orient, the so-called Trade Dollars became almost ‘calling cards’ for western nations as trade with the China and the Orient exploded following the First and Second Opium Wars. As other European powers began their push into Asia, France had for the most part gone unchallenged with the exception being Vietnam who themselves had hopes of achieving greater amounts of territory. By 1885, the French introduced a new currency based on the silver piastre de commerce in order to increase monetary stability The obverse of the coins depicted a distinctive seated Liberty and headdress similar to that worn by the iconic Statue of Liberty, a gift to the American people from France in 1876 on the Centenary Anniversary of US Independence. The reverse side included a simple wreath with the inscription INDO-CHINE FRANCAISE – PIASTRE DE COMMERCE – A TITRE 0,900. POIDS 27 GR. denoting the coin’s original weight and fineness.

At the very bottom of the obverse are the specifications of the coin of “ONE TROY OUNCE” and the exceptional purity of “.9999 FINE SILVER”.

The reverse features a very similar design to that of past Roaring Lion Silver Coins. Like past years, the 2020 Roaring Lions is backed by Niue.

The Aztec Calendar 1oz CUAUHTEMOC Silver Bullion Bar

The Aztec calendar is the calendar system that was used by the Aztecs as well as other Pre-Columbian peoples of central Mexico. It is one of the Mesoamerican calendars, sharing the basic structure of calendars from throughout ancient Mesoamerica.

The calendar consisted of a 365-day calendar cycle called xiuhpohualli (year count) and a 260-day ritual cycle called tonalpohualli (day count). These two cycles together formed a 52-year “century,” sometimes called the “calendar round”. The xiuhpohualli is considered to be the agricultural calendar, since it is based on the sun, and the tonalpohualli is considered to be the sacred calendar.

The calendric year may have begun at some point in the distant past with the first appearance of the Pleiades (Tianquiztli) asterism in the east immediately before the dawn light. But due to the precession of the Earth’s axis, it fell out of favor to a more constant reference point such as a solstice or equinox. Early Spanish chroniclers recorded it being celebrated in proximity with the Spring equinox.

In ancient cultures, stories about heroes and monsters were an important part of everyday life. They helped people explain objects in the sky, make sense of weather events, or answer life’s big questions. Born around the fire and evolved through word of mouth, tales of these creatures and their supernatural powers were told and retold millions of times from person to person, from trade port to trade port, and from generation to generation – manifesting into a hundred different versions around the world.

The Taj Mahal is known as the Crown of the Palaces and is a white-marble mausoleum. It was constructed along the Yamuna river near the city of Agra in India. Commissioned in 1632, the building serves as the tomb of the favorite wife of the Mughal emperor Shah Jahan. This fifth dragon in the series is known as the Indian and likely depicts Pakhangba, the supreme God of the Meetei tradition.

It became necessary to produce a special dollar for trading in the British Colony when the price of Silver rose rapidly in value between 1875 and 1895. The Silver price disturbed trading and resulted in a very serious shortage of minted dollars. To overcome the threat of a currency famine, The Royal Prerogative of the English sovereign gave approval in 1894 for the minting of a special British Dollar for general use in Far Eastern Trade.

The release of these Trade Dollars marked a significant change in Japan during which time the restoration of Imperial Authority was vested in Emperor Mutshuhito, who reigned from 1868 to 1914. His reign is known as the Meiji Era, which witnessed the introduction of rapid industrialization and manufacturing that transformed Japan into one of the world’s largest and most advanced economies.

His helmet has two sharp horns attached, which reference further mythological aspects associated with Chiwoo. His massive sword fills his right hand, while his large shield protects at his left. His large cloak flows behind him as he stands firm upon the rugged terrain. Chiwoo Cheonwang’s full attention remains fixed upon the chained gates cut into the mountainside, that are recounted to be the sealed hell gate. As with previous releases, only his name is inscribed at the mid-point of the right rim. This is truly a finely executed design that captures with imaginative skill the tenseness of the moment Chiwoo Cheonwang faces!

The mythical Phoenix rises again — this time as part of an epic new silver bullion series from South Korea, where the bird has been a harbinger of nobility and good fortune since ancient times. Flush with the monumental success and collector demand of its Chiwoo Cheonwang silver bullion series, South Korea was spurred to embark on another series. And this is it!

Struck in a full ounce of highly pure 99.9% fine silver by KOMSCO, the official mint of South Korea, this impressive medal captures the Korean Phoenix like never before. Known as a the “Bong-Hwang” in South Korea, the bird has been the symbol of Korean nobility since the late 1300s when “The Phoenix Throne” was used to describe the rulers of the Joseon Dynasty. The phoenix still maintains a huge presence in South Korean culture and has even been integrated into the design of the nation’s presidential seal.

The phoenix takes center stage on this piece where it is depicted majestically hovering in the sky, wings spread wide almost in an embrace while clutching a symbolic orb of knowledge in its beak. The reverse design superbly depicts a pair of Phoenix facing each other and the South Korean flag. The designs are simply fantastic. Plus, each piece available in this offer comes in original Gem Brilliant Uncirculated (BU) condition, meaning that they are products of a superb strike that places your them firmly among the elite of the run. Each also features a unique security feature in the form of a lenticular design struck into the silver itself. Located on the obverse, this lenticular feature displays either “Ag” or “999” depending on the viewing angle

The Fourth release in the Zi:Sin Series comes from KOMSCO with the design of Rattus. The collection features images of the 12 Guardians, with each of the guardians representing leading soldiers in the armies of God. In Korean culture, these individuals represent protectors who serve as the leading edge for the armies of good when facing off with evil in the world.

ZI:SIN Rattus is the Queen of the underground cave at the Chiwoo Empire and has the ability to forsee danger. Dressed in a celestial robe with a dagger on her waist, Rattus waits at the top of the cave to enjoy the darkness and brightness of the world under the full moon. It is here that she is able to foresee that a great war is coming, and alerts Chiwoo Cheonwang.

For the 2020 release, the obverse design features a new Gwi-myeon-wa, known as “Nok-yoo-gi-myeon-wa”. Traditionally, Koreans built Gwi-myeon-wa and hung them on both ends of their roofs to scare off evil spirits.

This perspective-based action scene is unequaled in any recent martial arts themed bullion coin offerings of which we are aware. Every aspect of this design is spot-on regarding the power of the deep focus involved in Taekwondo. The fist-punch displayed did not originate in the passionate emotional response of the combatant depicted. One glance at his expression demonstrates the quiet spirit out of which the punch was being delivered. This is a remarkable step forward in this new series, and one we hope to see expanded on in the years to come!

The obverse is consistent with the series, presenting a beautiful and active scene, featuring a Yin Yang symbol on the left center of the design. The darkness of the Yin is accented by slightly-angled fine, horizontal lines against the frosted background. The lightness of the Yang is from the unfrosted silver. A circle-inset fills the head of the Yang with the security feature of a latent image of the medallion’s fineness of “999” hidden within the fine vertical lines. The active part of the design is produced by swirls of heavier lines that appear to feed into the Yin from the top, and the Yang from the bottom. The overall design is very clean and attractive, with a nicely-textured frosted background. Inscriptions at the lower right include “2020” in a smaller type, with “KOREA” in a larger type stacked below.

The reverse is where the real action is! A young taekwondo fighter demonstrates a perfect upward, forward punch, originating from the center of his focused energy, ready to move in and finish the contest. Inscriptions include “TAEKWONDO . 1oz FINE SILVER 999.”

999
Mintage: 25,000

Asian cultures have a love of gambling that rivals anywhere else on Earth, so what better subject for a coin from the region that luck itself? The design of this one-ounce fine silver bullion coin is a composition of many of the elements associated with the concept of luck around the world. A slot machine is the main focus, but it, and the surrounding space, is replete with such iconic imagery as horseshoes, and four-leaf clovers. We’re not going to say this was something designed primarily for artistic style – this one is about the meaning more than anything else. The obverse of this Niue Island issue is a standard one, depicting Queen Elizabeth II for its main element.

Each of the coins in the 25,000 mintage comes with a small certificate of authenticity that has a serialised number on it. Nothing strange about that, of course, but there’s something a bit special about this one. On 28 March 2020, at 10am Korean time, there will be a live YouTube event in which one serial number of that 25,000 will be drawn to win a prize.

2020 Black Flag The Royal Fortune 1oz Silver Bullion Coin

Manufacturer: Perth Mint
Dimensions: 40.6 mm
Weight (grams): 31.103
Fineness: 999

The Royal Fortune was captained by the legendary Pirate Black Bart,  This is the second subject of a new series of silver and gold bullion coins from the Perth Mint, Throughout the 17th and 18th centuries, pirates roamed the seven seas, with each ship displaying a unique “black flag” to announce its arrival and make clear mercy would be given only to those who surrendered.

Born in Pembrokeshire. In 1718, when he was second mate on the Princess, his ship was captured by the Welsh pirate, Howel Davis, and he was forced to serve under his captor. When Davis was killed, Roberts, who in six weeks had shown great courage and resourcefulness, was elected captain. He accepted, saying that since he had dipped his hands in muddy water it was better to be commander than a common man. Notoriety came speedily. He sailed into a fleet of forty-two Portuguese ships, ascertained which was the richest, boarded, and sailed off with her. Soon he struck terror everywhere. When he entered a harbour in Newfoundland, their crews abandoned the twenty-two ships there. After successes, the pirates went ashore at places like Surinam and Sierra Leone, indulging wild debauchery until their resources were exhausted. Not that success was unbroken; once at least they were long in extremities for want of provisions and water. One of their finest captures was a frigate built ship of the Royal African Company. Roberts renamed her the Royal Fortune. Captain Chaloner Ogle, R.N., managed to bring her to battle off Cape Lopez.

Roberts was killed (10 February 1722), and his body, in all its pirate finery, thrown overboard, as he had previously requested. His crew then surrendered. Bold as pirate captains were, Roberts’s calculated daring was exceptional. In a drink-sodden and blood-stained community he was comparatively temperate and humane.

Roberts’ own prophetic words; “I have dipped my hands in muddy water and if a pirate I must be, ’tis better being a commander than a common man.”

These coins are the second of the Australian Shipwreck Series, following the Batavia release of 2019. On the morning of 28 April 1656, a VOC ship called the Vergulde Draeck, travelling towards Batavia (now Jakarta) with a load of trade goods, coins, cargo, passengers and crew, struck an uncharted reef off the coast of Western Australia. The reef gutted the ship and only 75 of the crew survived, along with a small quantity of provisions and a single boat.
The under steersman, Abraham Leeman, took the boat and six crew on an astonishing and gruelling journey to Batavia and reported the wreck. Several attempts were made to rescue the survivors, but they were never located. The wreck of the Vergulde Draeck was discovered in 1963 and was excavated in 1972. Some 19,000 coins were recovered, mainly Spanish reals and some Japanese silver coins. The mystery of what became of the survivors of the Vergulde Draeck has never been answered. This was one of the most enigmatic episodes of Australia’s maritime history.

A much slower animal, the hibernating bear is likely to take mighty downwards swipes with its paws when fighting, resembling a decline in the overall market.

Icons are representations of the Heavenly. They are expressions of Orthodox Faith, teaching, and worship. The Greek word for “Icon” is, “Αγιογραφία,” which can be separated into two words:

  • Άγιο, meaning Holy or not of this world (Heavenly)
  • Γράφω, meaning to write

Therefore, Icons are not drawings or creations of imagination. Theyare in fact writings of things not of this world. Icons can represent our Lord Jesus Christ, the Virgin Mary, and the Saints. They can also represent the Holy Trinity, Angels, the Heavenly hosts, and even events. Orthodox icons, unlike Western pictures, change the perspective and form of the image so that it is not naturalistic. This is done so that we can look beyond appearances of the world, and instead look to the spiritual truth of the holy person or event. Icons can only be created with the blessing of the Church, as they are writings of Truth.

The Mythosaur was a large and powerful dragon-like creature native to the Mandalorian homeworld of Mandalore in the Outer Rim. Upon the arrival of Mandalore the First, the Mythosaurs became a challenging target for early Mandalorians to test their battle skills. Eventually they were driven to extinction, but their ferocity and size has made them a key part of Mandalorian legends. Today, the symbolic representation of a Mythosaur skull is used as the official Mandalorian sigil.

Flying fish can be seen jumping out of warm ocean waters worldwide. Their streamlined torpedo shape helps them gather enough underwater speed to break the surface, and their large, wing-like pectoral fins get them airborne.

Flying fish are thought to have evolved this remarkable gliding ability to escape predators, of which they have many. Their pursuers include mackerel, tuna, swordfish, marlin, and other larger fish. For their sustenance, flying fish feed on a variety of foods, including plankton.

There are at least 40 known species of flying fish. Beyond their useful pectoral fins, all have unevenly forked tails, with the lower lobe longer than the upper lobe. Many species have enlarged pelvic fins as well and are known as four-winged flying fish.

Obverse: The likeness of Queen Elizabeth II along with the Tuluma, which is the national symbol of Tokelau. The Tuluma is a wooden tackle box used by the fishermen of Tokelau, inscribed with “Tokelau mot e Atua” meaning “Tokelau for God,” referencing the influence of Christianity in Tokelau.

Reverse: Shows two of the Flying Fish, one in the foreground and the second one a little smaller and in the background. The coin has graphics in the background representing the water of the ocean.
Sovereign coin backed by the government of Tokelau.

Fineness:

Hawksbill turtles are found throughout the tropical waters of the Atlantic, Pacific, and Indian Oceans. Named for their narrow, pointed beak, they are also recognizable by a distinctive pattern of overlapping scales on their exquisitely colored and patterned shells. This species typically avoids deep waters, preferring coastlines and coral reefs where they can find sponges, a primary food source for these omnivores.

Beautiful creatures, they make incredible migrations in order to move from feeding sites to tropical beaches that often serve as nesting grounds. Hawksbill turtles come to New Zealand every year from Fiji. Although they’ve been sighted as far south as Cook Strait, they are mostly seen in the upper North Island of New Zealand in the clear, shallow waters of the island shelve.

Like many sea turtles, hawksbills are a critically endangered species due mostly to human impact. Hawksbill eggs are still eaten around the world despite the turtle’s international protected status, and they are often killed for their flesh and their stunning shells that are highly valuable in some marketplaces.

 

2020 Boba Fett Star Wars 1 oz Silver Bullion Coin

Manufacturer: New Zealand Mint

Fineness:

For years, fans of Star Wars™ labored under the delusion that Boba Fett had died after being inadvertently knocked into the jaws of the Sarlacc by a blinded Han Solo in 1983’s Star Wars VI: Return of the Jedi. But according to none other than George Lucas himself, the most feared bounty hunter in the galaxy did not die. Instead, his armor protected him from the creature’s digestive system, and he was able to escape after blasting a hole in the monster’s side.

Since then, Boba Fett has sought his revenge through novels, video games and comic books that are considered official cannon of the Star Wars Universe. And now, Boba Fett gets his due on the New Zealand Mint’s latest release in its Star Wars bullion coin series that shows an image of the infamous mercenary armed to the teeth and ready for action. It’s a dynamic, action-packed image struck in a full ounce of highly-pure 99.9% fine silver. In addition, the coin is officially licensed by Lucasfilm and Disney, so you know it lives up to the high standards Star Wars fans have come to expect.

Of course, Boba Fett’s similarity to a new Star Wars character has led to some confusion. Thanks to the hit Disney+ series The Mandalorian, some folks have been mixing them up. The difference, though slight, is significant. You see, Boba Fett is actually a clone of the Mandalorian bounty hunter Jango Fett, who raised him as his son. Boba was taught the ways of the Mandalorians and wears the same armor, but he was not raised in Mandalorian culture and has no place that he can truly call home.
