Lost Civilisations – Babylon five-ounce silver variant (2022 Numiscollect)
Lost Civilisations - Babylon five-ounce silver variant (2022 Numiscollect)
We were suitably impressed by the debut coin in Numiscollect’s new series, ‘Lost Civilisations’ late last year, and it’s easy to see why from these images. However, while identical in design, what you’re looking at here is not that coin, but a new five-ounce version. Indeed, the only visible difference is the 2022 date, and the $20 denomination.
We said on our first reporting, that we really like this one, especially that gorgeous obverse with the warrior and his horse. Employing Enhanced Smartminting, we’d expect this to have a bit more relief, although that’s hard to tell from these images. Boxed with a Certificate of Authenticity, just 149 of these will be struck. We haven’t talk about the design much here, because we did so extensively in our article on the 2 oz coin, so head on over there for the Full Monty. Hopefully, if this one is successful, we’ll see a bigger issue of the second coin in this series, ‘Phoenicia and Carthage’.
