Beethoven Wax Seal 2 oz silver coin (2023 Coin's Today)
We’ve seen a few Beethoven coins over the last few years, most recently an impressive piece from Art Mint, but we haven’t seen one done in such a unique way as this one. Wax seals have been a part of the government machine, mostly during the age of monarchy as the ultimate power, for literally hundreds of years. Once the mark of importance, never to be broken by those it wasn’t intended for, it’s now a rare sight, used symbolically.
Putting a cameo-style portrait in the middle of silver looking like squeezed wax, sounds like an odd choice, but looks very cool, and we can see the concept having a lot more potential for wider employment, particularly for coins with a historical theme. Whatever the case, we like this one. The portrait is excellent, and the whole thing is quite unique.
This is a one-ounce silver coin, around 30-32 mm in size, and obviously with very high levels of relief. It comes boxed with a Certificate of Authenticity, the latter carrying a famous quote from the man. We don’t have the mintage at present, but will add it as soon as we can (time differences to Korea).
