CIT 2018 Wildlife Protection – Wild Boar 1oz Antiqued Silver High Relief Coin
One of the most iconic CIT collections is the Mongolian Wildlife Protection series launched in 2007. Eleven years and several awards later, the ninth installment of the collection portrays the wild boar (Sus scrofa) with mesmerizing amber-colored SWAROVSKI® crystal eyes that collectors of the series have come to cherish.
The design is once again struck in smartminting© high relief and thus represents a perfect blend of high-end minting technology and traditional sculpting craft.
Not many coin series span successfully over a decade. Mongolian Wildlife Protection, however, has been a collector’s favorite at the World Money Fair in Berlin throughout the years and will continue to impress and inspire until its tenth and final release in 2019. The Sus scrofa thus presents the penultimate issue of the series and will surely be a sought after collectible.

Smart Minting Technology
So what is Smart Minting all about? A technique allowing hitherto unprecedented levels of intricate relief on smaller coins, amongst many other benefits. Applied to a range of their new coins, CIT (Coin Invest Trust) took the inspired step of using it on a previous release to ably demonstrate the benefits of the process in comparison to traditional strikes.
smartminting© stands for:
• strikingly higher relief on standard weight coins
• extraordinarily high relief on coins with slightly increased weight
• considerably larger diameter on standard weight coins while maintaining relief height
• standard relief height on coins with greatly reduced weight
