Product Description

2017 Carved Skulls & Bones Silver 1oz Silver Coin

A pernennial image in culture from Neolithic times right up to the modern world, the human skull has been used to represent everything from love to dread. A carved human skull from 18th century Tibet has proved to be the inspiration for this new silver coin series, Carved Skulls and Bones.

Very much in the Mint of Poland style, with a rimless, ultra high-relief design, this looks to be an impressive debut for the new series. Issued for the African country the Republic of Cameroon, the antiqued obverse features that nations shield-based emblem in the centre, surrounded by a border. Most of that border is filled with an engraved pattern inspired by the subject matter.

REVERSE

The reverse features a copper-plated representation of a carved skull in high relief set against an antiqued background.  Instead of being simplified, the background has a phenomenal amount of detail present and complements the skull perfectly. The difference in finishes presents either from overwhelming the other.

OBVERSE

The obverse features the Coat of Arms for the the Republic of Cameroon
