2017 Mali 1/2 Gram Gold Great Wall of China – 7 Wonders of the Modern World Proof
The Great Wall of China Takes Its Place as a Modern World Wonder
When the New7Wonders of the World campaign started in 2000, it was announced as an innovative effort to select the most popular modern wonders of the world via internet polling. After everything was all said and done, more than 100 million votes were registered making the hugely successful marketing campaign a modern marvel in and of itself! Out of that effort came seven shinning examples of human ingenuity and engineering that represent the most iconic locations on the planet. One of the most popular of the group was the Great Wall of China – reproduced here as a gleaming gold proof!
Struck in a half-gram of highly-pure 99.9% fine gold, the curving, snake-like nature of the wall is featured in brilliant detail on this richly engraved coin. Expertly crafted from hand-selected planchets, polished dies and multiple strikes to produce beautifully frosted details rising over mirror-like fields, this proof perfectly captures the majesty of the Great Wall of China. The Wall was built over the course of several centuries and is one of the largest construction projects ever completed. It is without a doubt one of the most impressive architectural feats in history. Designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1987, The Great Wall curls around the tops of hills and ridges and descends into valleys and basins all along its 5,500-mile length.
Issued in 2017 by the Republic of Mail, the obverse of this 100 Francs legal-tender coin features the Mali Coat of Arms. The intricate design shows the Mosque of Djenna, a vulture, a rising sun and a pair of bows and arrows. The Republic of Mali is a land-locked nation in West Africa that was once a French colony. Today it is the eighth-largest country in Africa.
Just 5,000 of these wonderful coins were issued for worldwide release, and each comes beautifully presented in a colorful display card that also doubles as a Certificate of Authenticity. Start or add to your collection of the New7Wonders of the World today!
