MAGNIFICENT ARGALI 2022 Mongolia 50g proof copper coin
In the Winter Launch earlier this year, we released the Magnificent Argali, the successor of the Majestic Eagle and the Mystic Wolf, to showcase the possibilities of the enhanced smartminting® technology. Following up on that success, CIT is proud to release a silver black proof and a copper version. Both special finishes have become a very popular way to collect the series and feature the same incredible designs from our Winter Launch. The 2 oz silver black proof allows every single detail to still be seen in brilliant clarity. Everything from the individual fur hair to the ram’s glare staring at you in the background and the stunning horns, it’s all there in ultra-high relief! The 50 gram copper is equally as impressive in relief and clarity of design while displaying the color that is unique to only copper pieces.
The reverse of each of these stunning coins show a front facing view and a side profile of an argali. The side profile view is struck in ultra-high relief with an incredible amount of detail given to the fur and the horn. The smartminting® relief extends all the way to the edge of the coin! A very sublime picture of this graceful animal. The front facing view of the argali is expertly struck so that it appears like it is a ghosted image in the background. Razor fine detail and relief combine together to create this effect. There will be a total of 7 different coins done in 4 different metals.
The obverse shows the corkscrew horns of an argali in ultra-high relief and the tilted effigy is shown where the argali‘s face is. The background has a unique geometric pattern with the hidden “2022” date struck into the design.
Your MAGNIFICENT ARGALI 2022 Mongolia 50g proof copper coin is package inside of a Nimbus frame. A certificate of authenticity is printed on the reverse of the coloured insert which holds the coin in place.
