March 14th was Pi Day. If you’re like me and a little disappointed it didn’t involve beef and a huge portion of chips, you will at least be consoled that a coin for the actual mathematical Pi day is better looking than a minced cow themed one would be. Following last years coin which featured a trio of famous faces in the Pi world (is that an oxymoron…?), the 2021 coin concentrates on Archimedes, who would definitely struggle to eat a pie with that beard..
The design follows the style set out last year and is also reminiscent of the Icons of Innovation coin starring Galileo, of Bohemian Rhapsody fame. We like it, as, joking aside, it is a subject that should be given the proper respect and the coin, with its numbers in the background field, is on point for that. We particularly like the denomination, which is set at an appropriate, but very unusual, $3.14 of the Solomon Islands kind.
It’s a one-ounce silver coin, struck to a bullion finish and with a very small mintage of just 5,000 pieces. Available now from the distributor APMEX and a few select others.
