The Stegosaurus was a herbivorous dinosaur that lived during the late Jurassic period about 150 million years ago.

The reverse shows two halves of a buffalo head. Placing two of these coins next to each other gives a full close-up portrait of a buffalo. When several of these coins are placed next to each other, an entire buffalo herd appears. In the center, the denomination “FIVE RAND”, the weight “1OZ” and the fineness “Ag 999” are shown.

The Cape or African buffalo (Syncerus caffer) is a typical grazer. It lives in herds of a few dozen to hundreds of animals and prefers swampy areas and shaded grasslands near water. Particularly characteristic for the buffalo are its sweeping, curved horns, which can reach a span of up to 1.50 meters. As a “Big Five” member, the buffalo was formerly hunted on big-game hunts and severely decimated, so that the species almost became extinct – in the meantime, however, the populations have recovered. The limited Big Five II Buffalo silver coin in uncirculated quality is delivered in an illustrated blistercard of the South African Mint.

The 2023 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 2023 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.

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.

Road Runner™ is a popular Looney Tunes™ character who appears almost exclusively with the coyote Wile E. Coyote. The hungry coyote chases the Road Runner through desert-like landscapes – but his attempts to catch the exceptionally fast bird are always unsuccessful and end with the coyote briefly harming himself. Communication between the two characters is wordless and with the help of signs, which are used to express themselves. The only exception is the Road Runner’s typical “meep meep”, which he uses to scare the coyote.

The numerous victories won him the mythical title of God of the ward and his legacy continues to have an immense impact for generations. Chiwoo was also the mascot of the Red Devils, the supporter group of the Korean national soccer team that advanced with the team to the semifinals during the 2002 World cup.

Chiwoo Cheonwang upon whose life these designs are based on, is the symbol of victory in Korean history and folklore. In battle, he wore a demonic mask that obscured his face and terrified his enemies. Combined with his ability to cast magic spells and control the weather, Chiwoo Cheonwang fought a series of epic battles against China’s Yellow Emperor more than 4,500 years ago. Today his mask serves as the mascot for South Korea’s national soccer team, the Red Devils.

The series started in 2017 with Gallus, representing the Year of the Rooster who guards the West. Although the guardians are seen in their human form, their armor often depicts the animal that they represent.

The seventh release in the series is this 2023-dated medal depicting the warrior Lepus. 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.

  • 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”.

Weight (grams):

Fineness:

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.

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

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.

The Australian Antarctic Territory (AAT) is a part of East Antarctica claimed by Australia as an external territory.

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.

The Perth Mint is very pleased to present the 2023 version of the Kookaburra coin! First issued in 1990, the series features the imagery of the iconic bird from the Wiradjuri word “gugubarra”. (which is onomatopoeic of its call)

The Kookaburra birds are native to Australia and New Guinea. They are related to the Kingfisher and one of the four species is the famous laughing kookaburra. His call is recognizable because it sounds like human laughter! It is often used in television, movies or even in themed parks, (it was even used for Flipper the Dolphin’s laugh).

On the reverse of this beautiful 1 oz silver coin, the 34th annual Kookaburra design portrays two birds perched on branches surrounding waratah, a native floral treasure. The attention to details is magnificent and you can clearly see their beautiful plumage and although not in colour, you can imagine their whitish head with its brown eye-stripe. Here, the design incorporates the inscription ‘KOOKABURRA’, The Perth Mint’s traditional ‘P’ mintmark, the 2023 year-date and the coin’s weight and purity.

Their decline was largely due to the environment, a lack of food, and advances in human hunting capabilities. The sabre-tooth tiger is part of a genus known as Smilodon, named in 1842. Today, scientists recognize three known species in this genus, which are named S. gracilis, S. fatalis, and S. populator.

Nicolaus Copernicus was a Polish astronomer and mathematician known as the father of modern astronomy. He was the first European scientist to propose that Earth and other planets revolve around the sun, the heliocentric theory of the solar system. 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.

Manufacturer: Scottsdale Mint
Dimensions:
38.6mmx 3.2mm
Weight (grams):
31.10300
Fineness:
999
Mintage: 10,000

Mandrills are one of the more popular monkeys thanks to their stunning red noses and blue-colored cheeks. They also have prominent brows, long muzzles, and shimmering fur, which gives them a rather intimidating appearance. However, Mandrills are actually considered quite friendly. Even when they bare their enormous teeth at you, this is likely an act of affection rather than hostility. That said, one should always exercise caution around them since they are, after all, the largest monkeys on the planet.

Scottsdale Mint opened in 2009 as a silver reseller in Scottsdale, Arizona. The following year, CEO Josh Phair expanded the company to include a mint division. Scottsdale started with their popular stacker silver bar, and then within a year, they were also producing gold bullion coins. Today, Scottsdale Mint produces an enormous array of rounds, bars, and coins, including legal tender products for over 20 countries.

Obverse

On the obverse face of 2021 Mandrill 1 oz Silver Coin you will see the official Cameroon coat of arms.

Reverse

The reverse of 2021 Cameroon Mandrill Coins contains a Mandrill in a tree. This beautiful design gives you a great look at the full body of the monkey as it rests on a limb and gazes off into the distance. Youll also see inscriptions on the reverse that read MANDRILL, .999 1 OUNCE FINE SILVER.

The South African Mint is very pleased to announce the fifth and final release of this remarkable 5-coin series. Each of the coin releases feature one of the five most widely known African animals. With this final release, the Big Five series has now featured the African elephant, lion, rhino, leopard, and finally, the buffalo. Each coin is struck in .999 fine silver BU. This highly unique series is absolutely a must-have for fine bullion collectors

Originally, Big Five was associated with the five most difficult and dangerous animals to hunt on foot. The term is now used to describe the five African animals that are considered must-see, each magnificently impressive. Tourists fortunate enough to view them in their natural habitat report that it is one of their most exciting memories. Sadly, these five animals are endangered. However, it is hoped that this series of bullion coins will help bring greater attention to their plight.

Currently, nature reserves are being set up all over Africa, providing these animals a safe habitat in which to live and thrive. Hopefully, through these and other efforts, generations to come will continue to enjoy the ability to observe and appreciate these animals in their natural habitat.

Fineness:

The 2021 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 2021 as was the 2018, 2019 & 2020 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 2021 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 2021 silver coin features the well-known portrait of Paul Kruger by Otto Schultz.

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. Written in 1590 the story of Una and the Lion has stood the test of time to become a symbol of beauty, strength, honor, and endurance.

Queen Elizabeth II is featured on the obverse side of the 2021 St. Helena Silver Una and the Lion Coin.

The ancestral bird is comparable in size to a pigeon, researchers suspect a wingspan of about 50 centimeters and a body weight of no more than 500 grams. Until today, there is a disagreement about the flying skills of Archaeopteryx. It is assumed that he moved mainly on the ground by fast hopping and only occasionally took off into the air.

  • Reverse: Depicted perched on a branch and surveying his territory perhaps, it’s a great way to show of this remarkable creature in all its glory. Like the previous entrants in this series, there’s a title and timeline border that frames the art on both silver coins.

Weight (grams):
31.10300
Fineness:
999

The 2021 release features an all-new, one-year-only design struck in a full ounce of highly pure 99.9% silver. It depicts Chiwoo Cheonwang, South Korea’s legendary God of War madly thumping a traditional battle drum amid a host of soldiers on horseback riding past in the background. Cheonwang’s cape has been caught by the wind and majestically float above him to form a backdrop for the name of the series, “CHIWOO CHEONWANG” to be engraved along the rim of the coin. You’ll also want to look closely at the war drum where you’ll see an image of Dokkaebi, a supernatural goblin. That same design appears on Cheonwang’s left shoulder and is repeated on the medal’s obverse.

Chiwoo Cheonwang upon whose life these designs are based on, is the symbol of victory in Korean history and folklore. In battle, he wore a demonic mask that obscured his face and terrified his enemies. Combined with his ability to cast magic spells and control the weather, Chiwoo Cheonwang fought a series of epic battles against China’s Yellow Emperor more than 4,500 years ago. Today his mask serves as the mascot for South Korea’s national soccer team, the Red Devils.

2021 South Korea Zi Sin Taurus 1 ounce Silver Bullion Medal

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

The Zi:Sin series is back for its 5th release, this time featuring the Guardian known as Taurus. Zi:Sin are twelve Guardians from Korean mythology. Inspired by the lunar calendar, they are tasked with protecting against evil forces from twelve different directions. Taurus is not only the guardian of peace, but also the God of War.

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.

Each Guardian is assigned with unique powers to help in the fight of good versus evil. While Taurus is known to defend peace, he is also the God of War. As such, he is a large, striking presence. He is seen forging a sword, signaling both skill and preparedness. There is little doubt encroaching evil forces will cower in fright in the presence of such an imposing figure.

2021 South Korean Taurus Silver Medals arrive to you in brilliant uncirculated condition. All medals come in individual plastic capsules.

The obverse of the 2021 1 oz Zi:Sin Taurus Silver Medal features the Doggaebi, a mythical creature in Korean lore that fends off dark spirits. The design is based on a famous tile found in the ancient Korean kingdom of Silla. On the border of the coin are the weight, purity, date, and country. KOMSCO is spelled out at the bottom of the medal. Also, rather than 1 Troy oz, the medal says 1 Clay. This is simply a measurement from the mint that is the equivalent of a Troy oz.

The reverse features the guardian Taurus front and center. Taurus has flowing hair and is seen forging a sword. This suggests both his warrior ethos and that he is primed for battle. He appears poised and ready to ward off any evil spirits that dare approach. On the border of the medal are the words Zi:Sin Taurus.

Ching Shih (born Shih Yang 1775–1844), was a Chinese pirate leader who terrorized the China Seas during the Jiaqing Emperor period of the Qing dynasty in the early 19th century. She commanded over 1800 junks (traditional Chinese sailing ships) manned by 60,000 to 80,000 pirates – men, women, and occasionally children. Her ships entered into conflict with several major powers, such as the East India Company, the Portuguese Empire, and the Qing government.

In January 1808, the Chinese government tried to destroy her fleet in a series of fierce battles. However, Ching Shih inflicted several defeats on the Chinese navy, capturing and commandeering several of their ships. The government had to revert to using fishing vessels for battle. At the same time that the government was attacking her, Ching Shih faced a larger threat in the form of other pirate fleets.

In September and November 1809, Ching Shih and Cheung Po Tsai fleet suffered a series of defeats at the hands of the Portuguese Navy at the Battle of the Tiger’s Mouth, eventually coming to the realization there was no way they would be able to hold out forever. In their final battle at Chek Lap Kok in 1810, they surrendered to the Portuguese Navy on 21 January and later accepted an amnesty offered by the Qing Imperial government to all pirates who agreed to surrender, ending their career and allowed to keep the loot that same year.

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

There’s something special about wild horses running free, but the free-roaming mustangs of America’s West aren’t the world’s only wild horses. There are also herds of them roaming about the Australian Alps region in the nation’s Northern Territory and Queensland. These equine beauties are known as Brumby Horses or “Brumbies” in honor of James Brumby (1771-1838), an English soldier and pastoralist. Brumby was forced to turn loose the horses he had bred and raised in New South Wales after being transferred to Tasmania in 1804. Today, these feral creatures descended from Brumby’s original stock have come to symbolize Australia’s independent nature and ability to thrive in a hostile environment.

To pay tribute to these magnificent animals, Australia’s world-renowned Peth Mint has released a silver coin that depicts an unrestrained Brumby Horse confidently leaping among a steep outcropping of rocks somewhere in the wilds of Australia. The second year in the Brumby series of bullion coins, this beauty was struck in a full ounce of 99.99% pure silver.

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.

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.

Provident Metals currently has 2021 Australian Shipwreck Zeewijk 1 oz Silver Coins available to you for purchase online.

The Zeewijk was, like all Dutch East India Company vessels, required to sail to Batavia using the Brouwer Route to cross from Cape of Good Hope off Africa to Batavia. The route used the prevailing westerly winds to travel eastward and then turn north for Batavia. The Zeewijks captain ignored this route in the interest of vising Western Australia.

As a result, the Zeewijk became shipwrecked on the coral reefs of the Houtman Abrolhos island group off the coast of Western Australia. 10 men died by drowning as the crew attempted to launch its longboat. Eventually, all the crewmembers were moved to Gun Island where seals, fruits, and fresh water were available to sustain the crew. 12 men setoff in the longboat for Batavia one month after the shipwreck, but were never seen again. By the fall of 1727, the crew used materials from the crashed Zeewijk and mangrove timber from Gun Island to build a boat they named Sloepie. In February 1728, the Sloepie set sail with the remaining survivors and reached Batavia in April. 82 of the original 208-man crew survived. The Sloepie became the first European vessel built in Australia.

Trade Dollars were first introduced in the late 15th Century when the ‘Spanish Dollar’ was used to facilitate trade. It went on to inspire the creation of numerous national currencies, including the US Dollar.
By the late 19th Century, Chinese trade was growing both regionally and with the West. At the same time reforms within Chinese life were underway, many of them led by a strong female figure who herself played a key role in the story of the Chinese Trade Dollar. Shortly after the death of Emperor Xian Feng in 1861, his concubine Cixi assumed control and ruled China as The Empress Dowager. Cixi was able to read, a rare skill at that time, and educated herself on domestic and foreign affairs, creating policies that would modernise China’s culture and economy. Recognising the importance of making international trade as easy as possible she instigated changes in customs, weights and measures which paved the way for the creation ofthe Dragon Trade Dollar.

Britannia has been the female embodiment of Britain for centuries, evolving through the ages to capture the spirit of the nation she represents. First appearing on the coins of the Roman Emperor Hadrian, Britannia has a long history with British coins. Today, this icon is the face of our flagship Britannia bullion coin, renowned for its beauty and reliability. This incarnation of Britannia was created by sculptor Philip Nathan in 1987. He presented the ‘queen of the seas’ with carefully chosen symbols of Britain’s identity – a shield for protection, an olive branch for peace and a trident for her maritime links. The award-winning design has become so highly-regarded that only The Royal Mint is able to strike genuine Britannia coins featuring Philip Nathan’s interpretation. 

This modern classic of design has been struck on the 2021 Britannia bullion coin, which contains ten ounces of 999 fine silver and depicts Britannia standing boldly amongst the waves, surrounded by a background of radial lines. 

The image of Britannia is always on the reverse, the coin has been minted in silver since 1997. The image of the Proof Britannia is changed every year, and odd years see Britannia standing and even years see her sitting.

The image may be different on the proof and Unc versions of the same year; this is especially true after 2013. There are variations to the 1oz coin, we see 5oz, 1/2oz, 1/4oz and smaller; there are gold and platinum variants too. Generally the same year shares the same Britannia design.

Britannia, together with a combination of trident, Union Jack shield and lion are all symbols of Great Britain, devised many centuries ago to signify that Britain ruled the waves (as it did indeed in those days with the most powerful navy in the world). Britannia has been used on several other British coins.

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.

It acts as the official coat of arms for the British monarch and its origins lie on the medieval battlefield where it would be seen on shields, banners and dress. It has evolved through the ages and is a true indicator of power, approval and duty.

First appearing in 1983, the iconic design by Eric Sewell has been reinterpreted by Timothy Noad for 2021. 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.

The 2021 Royal Coat of Arms 1oz Silver Coin features a detailed design showing the Royal Coat of Arms; a shield flanked by the Lion of England and the Unicorn of Scotland. 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.

The obverse of the coin bears the fifth portrait of Queen Elizabeth II on a guilloche background design, and the monetary denomination of 2 Pounds.

This coin also comes in:  2021 Royal Coat of Arms 10oz Silver Bullion Coin

Passed along through the oral traditions of the time, stories of this heroic rebel have been spread far and wide since the fourteenth century. Robin Hood was often described as a great archer, and Jody Clark’s depiction of the character features him hidden amongst the branches of Sherwood Forest, poised with a bow and arrow ready for action.

Bowie is undoubtedly one of the most influential musicians in modern history. Known for his creative style and innovative and constantly evolving music, as well as his alter ego, Ziggy Stardust.

Born David Robert Jones in 1947, Bowie started playing the saxaphone at an early age and showed an interest in modern jazz. For his early perfromances he used the stage name Davie (or Davy) Jones, but changed it to avoid confusion with the actor Davy Jones, who had found success with The Monkees. Bowie chose to name himself after the Bowie knife as ‘it cuts both ways’.

Bowie has sold over 100 million records. Some of his best known works include Heroes, Life on Mars, Let’s Dance, Changes and his collaboration with Queen on the song Under Pressure. He was also an accomplished actor, with performances in The Prestige, The Man Who Fell to Earth, The Snowman, Zoolander, Extras and 80’s cult classic, Labyrinth.

John was born musically gifted; he taught himself piano at the age of 3 and started piano lessons when he was just 7. By 15 he was working as a pianist at a pub.

His long-time collaboration with lyricist Bernie Taupin has spawned such hits as Candle in the Wind, Rocket Man, Tiny Dancer, I’m Still Standing and Your Song.

The White Greyhound of Richmond is the last release in the collection.

In 1449, Henry VI granted the earldom of Richmond to his half-brother Edmund Tudor. With this grant, Edmund received Henry’s permission to use a particular version of the Royal Arms featuring a white greyhound as a heraldic supporter. Edmund’s only son would become Henry VII when he defeated Richard III at the Battle of Bosworth in 1485. The greyhound expressed both his Tudor and Lancastrian ancestry, through which he claimed the throne.

The shield the white greyhound is clutching shows the Tudor rose. Combining the red rose of Lancaster and the white rose of York, it symbolises how Henry VII united these warring houses, ending the Wars of the Roses. Artist Jody Clark captures the greyhound’s nobility, as well as its power and elegance. Featuring a secure chainmail background, the realism of the White Greyhound of Richmond is displayed to its fullest.

The mythical creatures rumored to roam the wilds of North America and other corners of the world are coming alive in a new series from the Royal Canadian Mint. Launched in 2020, the new Creatures of the North Series focuses on mythical beasts that have been rumored to exist in Canada for centuries now.

Beware the full moon! Tales of strange creatures in the night have always haunted our imaginations, and in the province of Quebec, the loup-garou is one of the most famous legends of all. Werewolf sightings may date back to the age of New France, but in July 1767, an article in the Gazette de Québec cautioned the public to be on the look-out for a loup-garou in the guise of a beggar. Either the creature or its legend was brought to these shores by settlers from France, where, several decades before, a werewolf “epidemic” had resulted in witch trials and executions. And a few years prior to Quebec’s famous loup-garou sighting, hundreds of deaths in southern France were attributed to the Beast of Gévaudan, prompting King Louis XV to place a bounty on the werewolf’s head.

Fineness: 999

Austria & Germania is the fourth coin from Germania Mint’s Allegories, coming to Collectors in 2021. The whole series depicts personifications of countries around the world in a form of beautiful, sensual and strong women. The Allegories coins are created in one diameter of 38.61 mm and four different heights and weights, from 3 mm for 1 oz coin to 25.85 mm for 10 oz coin, which is exceptional not only because of its thickness the blanks, from which it has been minted, were processed manually.

Obverse
The obverse of the coin presents the personifications of Austria and Germania, depicted as young and beautiful women. In the past, Lady Austria was regarded as the epitome of the multi-ethnic country… In the artistic vision of Germania Mint, she is holding a spear, which symbolizes the axis of the world, power, dignity and honour. Austria’s head is decorated with a laurel wreath, a symbol with multiple positive meanings, whilst Germania is crowned with a branch of an oak – the tree that has accompanied her from the very beginning of the series. In turn, our heroine holds her inherent attribute – the imperial sword “Reichsschwert”. Closeness between the two germanic amazons represents friendship between both cultures.

Reverse
According to the previous series, the image on the reverse is the coat of arms representing moral principles and noble values. Germania was a historical land and has never been an official country, that’s why we’ve decided to create our own interpretation of its coat of arms. Its symbols and design are a creation of our imagination, however it has been created in accordance with applicable heraldry rules.

The crowned shield has been divided into four parts, from which each has a traditional meaning, precisely defined by heraldry. The shield itself is a symbol of truth, loyalty and trust. The crown equals authority and nobility as well as chivalry.

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, seen in all forms of change and difference such as the annual cycle (winter and summer), the landscape (north-facing shade and south-facing brightness), sexual coupling (female and male), the formation of both men and women as characters and sociopolitical history (disorder and order).

The Bull and Bear are animals known for their incredible and unpredictable strength.

The terms Bull and Bear are used by investors as a way to describe the state of the financial markets. A bear market refers to the market when it is receding and a bull market is when prices are rising. These terms are derived from the way a bull will thrust its horns up in to the air, whereas a bear will generally swipe down.

“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.

“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
Lady Germania, in a daring pose on the bow of a sailing vessel, appears to be leading her people on a journey into broad waters. Traditionally, crowned with a laurel wreath, she is clad in her armor and falling cloth. In her hands she wields the imperial sword Reichsschwert and a flag fluttering in the wind. What makes the 2021 coin extraordinary, is the broadening perspective of the obverse on the subsequent coins in the series – 1, 2, 10 oz and 1 kg.

Reverse
The reverse of the 2021 coin remains unchanged, presenting the Germania Mint effigy with a two-headed eagle holding lightning bolts, surrounded by olive branches.

An aurochs is a type of wild cattle that lived throughout Europe, North Africa and Asia and became extinct in Britain by the Late Bronze Age. They roamed and grazed in small herds across plains and in open woodland

Aurochs were much larger than modern domesticated cattle, and one of the largest herbivores in Europe post-Ice Age. They had huge curved horns, each horn almost 1 m long, and when standing, bulls could reach 1.8 m shoulder height; taller than many people. The appearance of aurochs has been determined through the study of their bones found on archaeological sites, historical descriptions, and even images of aurochs seen in cave paintings.

The woolly rhinoceros was covered with long, thick hair that allowed it to survive in the extremely cold, harsh mammoth steppe. It had a massive hump reaching from its shoulder and fed mainly on herbaceous plants that grew in the steppe.

Mummified carcasses preserved in permafrost and many bone remains of woolly rhinoceroses have been found. Images of woolly rhinoceroses are found among cave paintings in Europe and Asia.

The Lord of the Rings
The Fellowship of the Ring is the first movie in this epic series and was released in 2001. The film is based on J.R. Tolkien’s first installment in his book trilogy that was initially published in 1954. Peter Jackson directed and filmed The Lord of the Rings series in his native New Zealand. The series was released in 2001 and 2003 and received raving reviews.

The Rings of Power was forged by the Elves in the home of Eregion.
The material from which the rings were made was extremely resistant. Only the fire of Mount Doom or the dragon, which, however, no longer existed at the time of The Lord of the Rings book, could destroy the rings (except for the ONE RING )

“Three rings to the Elven kings high in the light,
Seven to the dwarf rulers in their halls of stone,
To mortals eternally doomed, nine.
One to the Dark Ruler on Dark Throne,
In the land of Mordor, where the shadows threaten.
A ring to slave them, to find them all,
To cast into darkness and bind forever.
In the land of Mordor, where the shadows threaten.”
-The Lord of the Rings

Star Wars: Grogu “The Child” (aka Baby Yoda)
Born of the same race as Jedi Master Yoda, Grogu was raised under the tutelage of the Jedi Order before the fall of the Galactic Republic. As a very long-lived race, their young have an extremely prolonged period of adolescence. When initially introduced, Grogu is only known as “The Child” and despite appearing like a toddler he is actually 50 years old. This character melted the hearts of fans all around the world who referred to him as “Baby Yoda.” Perhaps it was this cuteness that turned the Mandalorian from bounty hunter to protector.

Grogu’s journey began at the Jedi Temple in the Galactic capital planet of Coruscant where he was trained in the ways of The Force with other younglings. During the Great Jedi Purge, he was rescued from the siege on the Jedi Temple and taken into hiding. During the reign of the new Galactic Empire, Grogu remained hidden by concealing his abilities. At some point after the fall of the Galactic Empire he was captured by a group of Nikto on Arvala-7. It is at this time that remaining Imperial forces hired assassins and bounty hunters to seek the child to kill or capture. These are the events that begin the highly popular Star Wars Mandalorian series on Disney Plus.

This coin marks 20 years of everyone’s favorite big green grumpy underdog. Shrek subverted standard fairytale hero tropes and had audiences rolling with laughter! Commemorate the start of a pop-culture phenomenon!

Originally based on a children’s picture book of the same name, the rights to Shrek were purchased by Stephen Spielberg and made into the Dreamworks film that we all know and love today. Shrek was originally voiced by Chris Farley, but later reworked with Mike Meyers after Farley passed away in the middle of the project. Mike Meyers brought his signature humor and Scottish accent to the role and made the character who he is today. Shrek undermines every expectation of the selfless knight in shining armor who sets forth to rescue the damsel in distress. When a local tyrant, Lord Farquad (played by John Lithgow), begins rounding up fairytale creatures and dumping them at Shrek’s swamp, the titular anti-hero angrily sets out only to have them removed. Conscious of being judged for what he is, Shrek turns out to be a more nuanced character and endears himself to the audience as the misunderstood underdog.

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.

The first release in a new series of coins celebrating famous Icons of Inspiration through history features Galileo Galilei, one of the most famed innovators in scientific history. Galileo’s achievements and discoveries are fundamental to our present understanding of the physical universe.

A scientist of many talents, Galileo is perhaps best known for his advancements in astronomy, especially the use of the refracting telescope to better understand the cosmos – including observations of the moon, supernovae, and our solar system, discovering the four largest moons of Jupiter, still referred to as the Galilean moons, and the phases of Venus. His observations led him to champion Copernicus’s heliocentric view of the solar system, at the time controversial but now known to be factual.

In addition to astronomy, Galileo achieved many other physical discoveries, including the laws of motion still fundamental to modern kinematics and a basic understanding of gravity based on the observation that bodies of unlike weights accelerate similarly in free fall. His practical contributions included research on conic sections to develop more accurate artillery aiming, the development of a thermometer based on fluid dynamics, and refinements to the design of the refracting telescope.
