Coin’s Today launches an extraordinary stackable silver bullion round featuring the piercing gaze of Michaelangelo’s David

It’s always a good day when a new stackable silver bullion offering from Coins Today drops into our inbox. From the simplicity of a design inspired by the James Webb Telescope, to one showcasing the stunning shield of the French King, Henry II, the selection on offer is both varied and eclectic. The South Korean producer has pushed boundaries with its designs, but this latest one is really special, in our view.

We’re sure that most people are familiar with the masterpiece of marble sculpting that is Michaelangelo’s David. Standing over five metres high, it was unveiled on 8 September 1504 in the Piazza della Signoria, Florence. It remained there until 1873, when it was moved inside to the Galleria dell’Accademia, being replaced in its original location by a replica.

The statue is known for it’s piercing stare, and Coins Today have drawn on that for this super new stackable, two-ounce silver bullion round. What we have here is basically a reproduction of a segment of Davids face, right down to the distinctive pupils. It’s beautifully done, and exhibits extreme levels of relief with a high degree of precision. We’d be impressed if it were a numismatic, but it’s all the more impressive when you realise it’s not only bullion, but a stacker as well.

The images should tell you all you need to know. We love it, but you probably already figured that out. It has an unlimited mintage, and is finished in what the producer calls ‘Light Antique’. We do have images of a Dark Antique variant, much like the Guy Fawkes Mask issue, but that one is not happening, That finish usually carries a much higher premium and a limited mintage, so not really an issue for the stacker. A terrific release, something truly unique that looks exceptionally well realised. Art is a popular subject in modern numismatics, so it’s great to see something push in a different direction. Available shortly.
