2018 Solomon Islands $2 1-oz Silver Forum of Pompeii Hologram Proof
The Glory of Pompeii Returns on this Unique Hologram Proof
Headlines were made in late 2018 when archeologists sifting through the ancient Roman city of Pompeii discovered a sensual bedroom fresco with colors so vibrant that they couldn’t believe their eyes. Not only had the fresco survived intact for nearly 2,000 years, but it had escaped the wholesale destruction that buried the city under 20 feet of volcanic ash following the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in AD 79.
Preserved by a lack of air and moisture, Pompeii is a historical snapshot frozen in time, and rightly classified as a UNESCO World heritage site visited by more than 2.5 million tourists every year. Try as one might, however, the sight of the ancient Roman city in its full glory is impossible to capture – until now! Thanks to modern technology and sophisticated minting techniques, a unique rectangular-shaped coin has been struck that shows the famous Forum of Pompeii as it looks today AND how it looked nearly 2,000 years ago! Minted in one ounce of 99.9% silver, the legal-tender $2 coin is part of the Solomon Islands’ popular Hologram Collection. All you need to do is tilt the 27 mm x 47 mm coin a tad and the columns and Temple of Apollo miraculously appear to transport you back to the heyday of the Roman Empire!

Each will come housed in a beautiful storycard holder that also serves as a certificate of authenticity.
