2024 Somalian Leopard African Wildlife 1oz Silver Bullion Coin

Manufacturer: Bavarian state mint
Dimensions:
39mm
Weight (grams):
31.10300
Fineness:
999

The new Somalia Leopard 2024 of the popular African Wildlife Series was struck from one ounce of 99.99% pure silver. The African Wildlife Series from Somalia is released annually with a changing leopard motive and is extremely popular among collectors and investors worldwide. The motive features a mother leopard and her cub on a rock outcrop. The inscriptions “AFRICAN WILDLIFE”, “LEOPARD” and “1 oz Ag 999.9” surround the design. The reverse shows the national coat of arms of the Republic of Somalia, which depicts the Somalia flag and two leopards. The denomination and year of issue are also included in the design.

The Leopard (Panthera pardus) is a loner common in Africa and Asia, and belongs to the most graceful and powerful big cats on earth along with lion, tiger and jaguar. It is an excellent climber and, unlike most other big cats, can also climb down head first. Its excellent climbing ability also benefits the leopard in securing its prey – it often drags hunted animals up into trees several meters high, where lions and hyenas can no longer reach them. The limited silver bullion coin is delivered in a protective coin capsule.

The 2024 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.

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 2024 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 2023 silver coin features the well-known portrait of Paul Kruger by Otto Schultz.

Tradition has it that King Arthur was charged with preventing the constant invaders from entering south-west Britain, and so he took it upon himself to be the defender and protector of the Britons against their enemies.

Fineness: 999

“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.

It was crafted primarily from ivory panels mounded to a wooden core, with Gold and other precious materials adorning the statue.

The statue stood at an impressive height of around 42 feet and was a symbol for the power and grandeur that was often associated with Zeus.

This coin is part of the Truth Coin Series, produced by SD Bullion since 2018 and struck by Sunshine Minting. The series initially consisted of a Roaring Lion of Judah design and a Tree of Life design, issued every year. To this, two new designs: the Ram of Calvary, and the Sword of Truth.

The truth is hidden on the horn of the ram and says “worship in the spirit” taken from John 4:24; the rest of this verse can be found in the other releases of the 2023 Truth Series

The Mausoleum at Halicarnassus
This beautiful tomb built to honor Mausolus, a ruler of Caria and satrap of the Achaemenid empire, was built in the city of Halicarnassus, located in modern-day Turkey. The tomb, built between 353 and 350 BC, stood at 45 meters (148 feet) high and was adorned with sculptural reliefs on all four sides. The sculptures and columns were built by the famed Greek sculptors Leochares, Bryaxis, Scopas and Timotheus.

The Mausoleum was destroyed by earthquakes between the 12th and 15th century, and was the last surviving of the six destroyed wonders, leaving only the Pyramid at Giza remaining to modern day. The Mausoleum lives on through various inspired structures around the world, and ruins of the tomb can still be seen at its resting place to this day. The word “mausoleum” is now used to describe any above-ground tomb.

The Great Pyramid of Giza is perhaps the most famous of the 7 Wonders of the World, and the only one to remain intact to this day. It is located just outside of modern day Cairo, and was built over 4,500 years ago.

The pyramid is the largest of the Egyptian pyramids, and was built to be the tomb of pharaoh Khufu in the early 26th century BC. It is estimated that the pyramid took around 27 years to complete and held the title of largest man-made structure in the world for over 3,800 years. The construction technique used to build the pyramid has been a topic of debate for centuries, but it is widely believed that stone was gathered in quarries surrounding the site and transported by boat along the Nile to the site of construction. Once complete, the structure was made up of around 2.3 million blocks and contained around 5.5 million tonnes of limestone and 8,000 tonnes of granite.

The Great Pyramid of Giza has been a marvel for the human race for thousands of years, fascinating for its place in Egyptian history, construction and architectural feat, and its ability to survive through the centuries.

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.

  • Obverse: Depicts the Hall of Prayer for Abundant Harvests in the Temple of Heaven in Beijing encircled by the phrase “People’s Republic of China”.
  • Reverse: year’s design features two young pandas in a tree with a younger bother extending a paw to his sister perhaps to help her. The coin’s creator Tong Fan has called the scene “accompanying love”.

Silver bullion bars have long been a sound choice for precious metals investors. There are primarily two advantages recognized by those investing in bullion bars. Due to lower production costs, they generally have a lower premium as compared to the same troy oz of silver and gold coins. This, of course, results in less expensive upfront investment costs. Perhaps equally important to the precious metals investment stacker is the bar’s relative ease of stacking for storage. The stacks generally take less room to store than the same weight of bullion coins.

The Sydney Opera House has been a source of wonder since it was a sketch on a page. In 1954, the then NSW Premier, Joseph Cahill, promised a structure that would be a credit to the state for hundreds of years. Then, from a small coastal town in Denmark came a vision from architect Jorn Utzon that would forever change the face of Sydney.

Now a symbol of modern Australia, the Sydney Opera House has more than repaid the conviction of Utzon and Australian architect Peter Hall, who transformed these dreams into the creative masterpiece that stands today. When the building finally opened its doors in October 1973, a new era of creativity and connection began.

Five decades later, the Opera House is everyone’s house. It is the nation’s premier tourist destination, one of the world’s busiest performing arts centres and a community meeting place that belongs to all Australians. To visit Bennelong Point is to encounter a story of contemporary experience that continues to renew itself each day.

Under the command of James Cook, the two ships “Resolution” and “Discovery” crossed the southern polar circle for the first time on January 17, 1773 – however, the hoped-for sight of the mysterious continent south of the Cape of Good Hope was denied them, so that James Cook doubted the existence of the South Pole, which was discovered only 50 years later. Cook was nevertheless celebrated like a hero and personally honored by King George III upon his return.

The motive features a colorful depiction of the Southern Arctic Ocean and a detailed image of one of the ships. The inscription “CAPTAIN COOK CROSSES THE ANTARCTIC CIRCLE” and the year “1773” are also included in the design.

Weight (grams): 31.103
Fineness: 999

The Australian Antarctic Territory (AAT) is a part of East Antarctica claimed by Australia as an external territory. The territory’s history dates to a claim on Enderby Land made by the United Kingdom in 1841, which was subsequently expanded and eventually transferred to Australia in 1933. It is the largest territory of Antarctica claimed by any nation by area.

Named in honour of naturalist Johann Forster, who travelled with Captain James Cook on his second voyage of discovery (1772 – 1775), the Emperor Penguin (Aptenodytes forsteri) is the largest of all penguins, growing to around a metre tall. Emperors are endemic to Antarctica, including the Australian Antarctic Territory. They are well adapted to the frigid southern continent and alone among penguins, are capable of breeding during the icy winter.

Once regarded as a species of least concern, Emperor Penguins are now classed as near threatened, due to reduction of their food source from commercial fishing and climate change induced loss of sea ice.

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.

Camelot Castle, home to the Knight of the Round Table and their noble leader, can be seen in the background. Struck in 999 fine silver, each coin is finished to The Royal Mint’s bullion standard.

Today, scientists recognize three known species in this genus, which are named S. gracilis, S. fatalis, and S. populator.

Prior to the publication of his major astronomical work, “On the Revolutions of the Heavenly Spheres,” in 1543, European astronomers argued that Earth lay at the center of the universe, the view also held by most ancient philosophers. In addition to correctly postulating the order of the known planets from the sun and estimating their orbital periods relatively accurately, Copernicus argued that Earth turned daily on its axis and that gradual shifts of this axis accounted for the changing seasons.

Tesla was truly a remarkable person that devoted his life to discovery while additionally relishing the role of showman. Tesla became well known as an inventor and would even demonstrate his achievements to celebrities and wealthy patrons at his lab. He was also 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.

Consuming the young leaves of the beech tree and its fruits, one fell into a state of intoxication, which allowed one to calm down, get rid of unnecessary thoughts, which in turn was supposed to facilitate contact with the deity. In the shade of the tree’s sizable crown, people spent time talking to the god, which is why statues were erected under the beech tree, burial shrines were built, and barrows were spread.

On September 17, 1806, when The Netherlands was under the rule of King Louis Napoleon, he decided that the striking and distribution of coins should be by a single national body. This was in contrast to the Middle Ages custom of large trading cities having their own mint and coins, which resulted in several coins circulating within the country and many levels of controlling bureaucracy.

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.

The Equilibrium series started in 2018 and is focused on acknowledging the importance of balance.

In Ancient Chinese philosophy, yin and yang is a Chinese philosophical concept that describes how obviously opposite or contrary forces may actually be complementary, interconnected, and interdependent in the natural world, and how they may give rise to each other as they interrelate to one another. 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?

Fineness:

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 2023 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 2023 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.

The males are distinguished by their particularly colourful plumage and have always been considered a great source of inspiration – not only for the local population, but also for artists around the world.

These are usually dedicated to historical or general popular culture themes not related to the country itself.

This premium bullion coin is the third in a series dedicated to the probably most fascinating number in mathematics – the Number Pi (π).

The number π is a mathematical constant. Originally defined as the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter, it now has various equivalent definitions and appears in many formulas in all areas of mathematics and physics. It is approximately equal to 3.14159. It has been represented by the Greek letter π since the mid-18th century, though it is also sometimes spelled out as “pi”. It is also called Archimedes’ constant.

Her husband, Pierre Curie, was a co-winner of her first Nobel Prize, making them the first-ever married couple to win the Nobel Prize and launching the Curie family legacy of five Nobel Prizes. She was, in 1906, the first woman to become a professor at the University of Paris.

She was born in Warsaw, in what was then the Kingdom of Poland, part of the Russian Empire. She studied at Warsaw’s clandestine Flying University and began her practical scientific training in Warsaw. In 1891, aged 24, she followed her elder sister Bronisława to study in Paris, where she earned her higher degrees and conducted her subsequent scientific work. In 1895 she married the French physicist Pierre Curie, and she shared the 1903 Nobel Prize in Physics with him and with the physicist Henri Becquerel for their pioneering work developing the theory of “radioactivity” – a term she coined. Marie won the 1911 Nobel Prize in Chemistry for her discovery of the elements polonium and radium, using techniques she invented for isolating radioactive isotopes.

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.

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 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.

The impressive roar of the lion can be heard up to 8 kilometers away and is used for communication within the pack members.

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.

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 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.

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.

Inspired by the lunar calendar, they are tasked with protecting against evil forces from twelve different directions. This issue features Tigris wielding a halberd while on the prowl.

The Zi:Sin series from KOMSCO offers an intriguing twist on well-known lunar calendar coins. Rather than offer twelve animals representing each month, the series turns to Korean lore and presents the 12 Guardians. According to myth, there are evil forces from twelve directions on the lunar calendar wheel. The Guardians are divinely ordained protectors against these dangerous forces lurking around us. There are 12 Guardians in total, each one representing an animal on the lunar calendar.

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.

Weight (grams): 31.103
Fineness: 999

This 2022 Silver Tuvalu Perth DC Comics: Phantom 1 oz BU is the latest superhero-themed offering from the island of Tuvalu, in association with Perth Mint. According to the mint, “The Phantom, sworn to the destruction of piracy, greed, cruelty, and injustice, was created by Lee Falk in 1936. Seemingly immortal, having been around since 1536, he is in fact the 21st member of a crime-fighting dynasty who all adopt the same costumed persona. The Phantom lives in a jungle hideout known as Skull Cave, where all previous Phantoms are buried. Like his predecessors, he relies on his strength, intellect, and legendary immortality to overcome evil. Featured in The Phantom, the most widely-read superhero comic in the world, the anti-crime crusader is also a star of film, television, and video games.”

When it debuted in 1936, The Phantom comic gave readers a hero as theyd never seen before. The Phantom was the first superhero to have an official spandex costume and, in many ways, set the standard for characters like Superman, Spiderman, and The Flash. But because of his vigilante status and lack of any actual superpowers, some fans consider The Phantom as a precursor of The Batman.

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.

Mary Read was born in London in 1685 or 1690 as an illegitimate child. Her widowed mother dressed Mary as a boy to replace her deceased firstborn and to hide the affair from which Mary was born from her in-laws. 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.

The Pirate Queens – Mary Read Premium Bullion Coin in Silver is limited to only 10,000 pieces worldwide and is delivered in a protective capsule.

The 2022 James Bond 007 Tuvalu Black Coloured 1oz Silver Bullion Coin

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

Weight (grams):

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.

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.”

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.

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.

The Lion of England is the first of the ten heraldic creatures that stand guard over the moat outside Hampton Court Palace in the form of fearsome statues. Embodying the strength of the Tudor dynasty, they symbolise the ancestry of Henry VIII and his third wife Jane Seymour. The tradition of mythical beasts representing the values and traits of a kingdom began centuries earlier, when heraldic creatures appeared on flags and banners on the battlefield to unite and direct armies and strike fear into the enemy.

The reverse design by David Lawrence displays the Lion of England in an intimidating pose, inspired by the Moat Bridge Royal Beasts of Hampton Court Palace. The design is also set against a new surface animation background texture. Jody Clark’s portrait of Her Majesty The Queen also features on the coin’s obverse.

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
