It’s been a while since we covered new releases from the Armageddon Mint, but they’re getting busy again with some quite unusual new releases. One of them is this Bear Trap coin, issued for the Republic of Chad, and formed in an ounce of 0.999. Its shape is the first thing that stands out, and as Armageddon have been busy with their new state-of-the-art gas-exchanged, vacuum precision caster, we’re going to assume that this is the way the coin was formed.
It’s quite a US-centric design, given these abhorrent devices are banned in the EU, and the UK (although comically, in the UK, it is apparently legal to set one inside your house between 6pm and 6am to catch burglars…), and around 10 states in the US. As an exercise in numismatics, it remains an interesting piece. The coin is 41 x 47 x14 mm in size, is struck to a brilliant uncirculated finish, and has a mintage of just 500 pieces. It comes boxed with a certificate of authenticity, and should ship next month. It can be purchased from the link below.
