One of the pioneers of shaped, non-geometric dimensional coins, CIT have issued some striking examples over the last few years. As they’ve become more comfortable with the process, we’re starting to see coins of this style at the more affordable end of the market. Where better to go next than a perennial staple of CIT’s annual lin-up, the lucky coin?
At only an ounce in weight, this is an impressive piece for the format, a full on horseshoe-shaped coin, decorated with scenes of the Wild West, lifted straight from the old Hollywood movies. Giant cacti, mountains and a cowboy make it clear what this one is about. Strangely for a ‘lucky’ coin, the decoration and inscriptions are orientated for the coins ‘prongs’ to face down. A lucky horseshoe is meant to be displayed ‘prongs up’, so the luck doesn’t drain out, at least here in the UK.
Antique finished and with a 2,500 mintage, this Palau issue makes a great gift in a popular genre. The Mint of Poland and many others issue luck-themed coins, so it’s clearly a subject in demand, but few look as cool as this one.
