A coin we’ve already covered in some depth when it first appeared, the first in Coin Invest Trust’s (CIT) new Mongolian Lunar range was the first to incorporate two new techniques to this innovative producers expanding repertoire. The first was Black Proof, simply a way of incorporating a black colouration to a proof finish without the usual paint or ruthenium plating.
The second technique was called Hi-Carve and this involves the handmaking of the relief object on the coins reverse face. Because of this, each piece is completely unique. As the coin is the first in a lunar series from a country not generally associated with them, and limited to just 2,016 pieces, it could have potential to be a hit series. There’s plenty of precedent for CIT Mongolian coins enjoying healthy appreciation. We thought we’d share this new image that gives a far better look than the ones in our initial article, of just what level of relief is exhibited by Hi-Carve.
I think it is Silver-Sulfide coating on this coin?
