2017 Ascension Islands 1 Crown 1.5-oz Bi-Metal Theia NGC PF70UCAM First Releases
Bring Home the Goddess of Gold & Silver
Theia is the daughter of Uranus, Greek god of the sky, and Gaea, also known as Mother Earth. In the Greek pantheon, Theia is the goddess of all things that shine, including silver, gold, gems and even light itself!
It’s no wonder, then, that she was chosen by the world-renowned Pobjoy Mint to adorn this incredible bi-metal coin, struck in 99.99% gold and silver. With a legal-tender value of 1 crown, it’s a collector’s dream – its golden center depicting the goddess sitting down while holding a shield bearing the image of a diamond-shaped burst of light. In fact, if you look closely you’ll notice that it’s not just a diamond shape, but a real diamond embedded in Theia’s shield!
The center of the coin contains a full ounce of 99.99% pure gold, while the ring around the outside, bearing the legend “THEIA - GODDESS OF GOLD & SILVER” along with the coin’s legal-tender denomination, comes struck in a half-ounce of 99.99% fine silver. Each part of the coin features its own notation of fineness.
Collectors love bi-metal coins. A coin featuring gold, silver and a diamond is a must-have for any collection – especially when it depicts the goddess of all three attributes!
- ONE-YEAR-ONLY DESIGN – This coin’s unique one-year-only design pays tribute to the Goddess Theia with not only an epic design, but with the materials used to make it – gold, silver and a real diamond!
