Another new limited mintage silver bullion coin series from APMEX debuted last year, called ‘Celtic Animals’. Similar in concept to their ‘Mandala Animals’ series, it depicts animals not in a natural form, but instead constructed from the symbology associated with that culture. They look like they’ve been constructed almost as if in a small, intricate tattoo style.
They look okay. The Mandala series was okay and this is more of the same. This second annual issue shows us a Rabbit (above), following last years Ox (below), which at least means they’re keeping the choice of subjects sensibly limited to those that were known, and likely depicted in Celtic society. A Celtic Kangaroo might be a bit of a hard sell!
Unlike Mandala, Celtic Animals is restricted to a single format – one ounce silver – but does maintain a very small mintage, in this case just 5,000 pieces. Issued for the Republic of Chad, it has their national emblem on the obverse. Available now.
