OLD TOWN SQUARE EXECUTION (2021) by the Czech Mint


2021 OLD TOWN SQUARE EXECUTION by the Czech Mint One thing the coin producers in Eastern Europe do very well showcase their history. Much of it is largely unknown in the West, but it's a rich, deep and often tragic one that is filled with themes and events ripe for numismatic attention. One such event happened 400 years ago in the capital of what is now the Czech Republic, Prague.Starting early on a June morning in 1621, 27 Czech Lords, Knights and Burghers were executed after taking part in a failed uprising against the Habsburg [...]

REVOLUTIONARIES (2014-2022) by CIT Coin Invest


2014-2022 REVOLUTIONARIES by CIT Coin Invest A fantastic subject for a coin series, the worlds revolutionary figures have, often for the wrong reasons, entered popular culture in ways that are hard to tie in with the historical people. They often have outsized reputations enhanced by tall tales and iconic photographs. Despite their ubiquity worldwide, they've appeared on hardly any modern coins over the last decade. CIT Coin Invest have helped rectify that, and have done so with some style. The new series debuted back in 2014 and was a one-ounce fine silver issue - one of [...]

DINOSAURS (2020-2021) by the New Zealand Mint


DINOSAURS (2020-2021) by the New Zealand Mint One of several dinosaur series on the go through 2020, the New Zealand Mint's aptly named 'Dinosaurs' series leverages the mints antiqued and coloured one-ounce silver coin format to do the honours. They've used the style successfully on a few previous issues that we really liked, including the excellent 'Warriors of History; and 'Battles That Changed History' history ranges. The mint doesn't produce as many ranges like this anymore, having moved primarily into big pop-culture and media franchises. These are pretty coins exhibiting some decent, if unspectacular artwork.They [...]



2018-2021 UNDERWATER WORLD by MDM Wholesale Making its debut early in 2018, German producer MDM Wholesale launched its first Underwater World coin. A three ounce silver coin with an antique finish, it featured a heavily dished reverse face inside a border, which was filled with a translucent blue enamel. Struck to an impressive level of ultra high relief, each coin depicts a sea creature not only under the enamel, but also bursting through the surface of it, just as the animal would in reality. There have been four issues to date at the rate of [...]

MAGNIFICENT LIFE (2015-2020) by CIT Coin Invest


2015-2020 MAGNIFICENT LIFE by CIT Coin Invest Released back in 2007,alongside the superb Evolution of Life series, Magnificent Life took a wholly different approach to the one-ounce coin. Eschewing the antique finish and rose-gold gilding of its prehistoric-themed sibling, this series went with a deep strike (a concave dish on the reverse face), a proof finish and varying amounts of colouration. Smartminting was in evidence, in this case allowing highly defined levels of subtle high-relief. The series has run for six issues, but the 2020 release is to be the last one, sadly, as [...]

ANIMAL CHAMPIONS (2019-2020) by the Czech Mint


2019+ ANIMAL CHAMPIONS by the Czech Mint A very nice series from the Czech Mint, Animal Champions has for its subject the record breaking creatures that push the envelopes of just what is possible in the natural world. The biggest, fastest, strongest of their types are represented, and done so in a striking style. Each coin is antique-finished and is struck in an ounce of fine silver. They're quite a standard format, eschewing colour, high-relief and inserts,and as a result are relatively affordable. The first year of release was 2019 and encompassed four issues, [...]

TIFFANY ART (2014-2020) by Coin Invest Trust


2004-2020 TIFFANY ART by CIT Coin Invest Every now and then a coin series flares brightly on the market for a couple of years, and then fades away. Sometimes, it's three or four releases before interest disappears, but rarely, a series of coins so captures the heart of the market that it can go on for years and stay at the top of it's game. Foremost in the last group is the Tiffany Art series of architecture coins released by the Liechtenstein based coin producer, CIT Coin Invest, known to most simply as, CIT. Without [...]

ETERNAL SCULPTURES (2016-2021) by Powercoin


2016-2020 ETERNAL SCULPTURES by Powercoin Fine art has always been a popular subject on modern coins. Reproductions of some of the world's great paintings are popular, and even pottery has attracted an interesting series or two. Sculpture, because of its fundamentally three-dimensional nature, is a little harder to depict on a small coin, but Italian dealer Powercoin, along with super-producer CIT Coin Invest, decided they could do a good job of it. They were wrong. They did a fantastic job. Eternal Sculptures debuted in 2016 and sees just a single release annually. Each coin is [...]

INVENTIONS OF LEONARDO (2019) by the Czech Mint


2019 INVENTIONS OF LEONARDO by the Czech Mint Renaissance genius Leonardo Da Vinci is no stranger to the coin world and it’s easy to see why. A huge body of incredible artwork and astounding inventions are a veritable visual feast and make splendid numismatics. To date, the vast majority of coins featuring the mans work have stayed firmly in the artistic sphere, but the Czech Mint have chosen to showcase Da Vinci’s engineering skills, especially in works that led to advances in warfighting. Designed by Asamat Baltaev, the medal maker responsible for the beautiful Jules [...]

HISTORY OF POLISH COINS (2013-2020) by the National Bank of Poland


HISTORY OF POLISH COINS (2013-2020) by the National Bank of Poland There's little more interesting in modern coins than a series that showcases coins of old. While looking at all the latest and greatest issues from the high-tech mints of today, it's easy to forget what an integral part of history coins are, especially the further back in time you go. The National Bank of Poland started a series in 2013, called 'History of Polish Coin'. Each of the sterling 0.925 silver coins showcases a coin from Poland's history, going right back to the first [...]
