CIT 2018 Little Secrets – 2oz Silver High Relief Coin

NEW RELEASE: Little Secrets is perhaps CIT’s most remarkble new coin. While incused coins have been around for ages, Little Secrets plays in a league of its own. CIT and B.H. Mayer used smartminting© to create a keyhole effect resulting in a hitherto unimaginably deep incused design. While the technical aspects are impressive on their own, Little Secrets is much more than that.

At the bottom of the recessed strike, as if peeking through a keyhole, the observer sees part of a 2008 painting by highly regarded American artist Bryce Cameron Liston titled “… And Everything Nice”. A peek-a-boo collector’s box further complements the coin’s unique concept.

Reverse

CIT and B.H. Mayer used smartminting© to create a keyhole effect resulting in a hitherto unimaginably deep incused design. While the technical aspects are impressive on their own, Little Secrets is much more than that.

Obverse

The obverse carries a silimar filigree patern as the reverse, with a coin-shaped area carrying the Ian Rank Broadley effigy of Queen Elizabeth II on it, and is issued under the authority of the Cook Islands.

Packaging

Presented in a collector’s tin with peep through key-hole. A certificate of authenticity is enclosed.

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

    I’ve today received the Little Secrets coin and it’s more beautiful in real life. This oin should be part of every serious coin collection. The coin arrived very safely packaged and within 2 days of ordering. Great service from Minted-UK.
