This amazing silver coin is the first in "Angels and Demons" series dedicated to one the most powerful dark creature in ancient religious mythology - Lucifer, also known as Satan, Lord of the underworld. Angels & Demons are everywhere in popular culture today, especially literature and TV, so it’s great to see them get this kind of numismatic treatment. The first fruit of this collaboration is Lucifer
- Created for people fascinated with evil forces
- Unique decoration: selective Gold plating
- Frightening and expressive design
- A limited to only 500 pieces
The design is a real beauty. It’s a pretty unique interpretation, moving away from the gruesome evil of many stories, to something more focused and purposeful. You can easily see him as the fallen angel of lore. The wing spars ending in blades are a super touch, one having impaled an angel. A demon and angel are having an aerial battle in the background. I really like this one, further enhanced by some selective gilding of Lucifer’s weapon.
The obverse is beautiful, continuing the mints trend of minimalizing the effigy, or in this case, emblem of Niue. This leaves acres of space for something special, and the vista of nature, both flora and fauna, fills every bit of available space. This will be common to the series, and represents what the Angels and Demons are fighting for control of.
