In a first for the Swiss Mint, they’re issuing a platinum coin. Struck in 13.89 grams of 0.9995 platinum, it’s not only is made of the metal, it has it as its subject as well. The reverse face of the coin consists of a mix of chemical symbolism and data, including the metals atomic weight, position in the Periodic Table, and elemental symbol. The obverse is a standard Swiss Mint one, the producer not known for deviation in that regard.
This 25 mm diameter proof-finish coin has a mintage of 999 pieces, and comes boxed with a Certificate of Authenticity. Designed by artist Remo Mascherini, whose mintmark is placed to the bottom right, this is a clean, on-point coin that should have appeal to the science crowd. Available from today in the Swiss Mint e-store for 799 CHF.
