This beautiful coin is introducing the Magnificent Argali, featuring brand new, never before seen enhanced smartminting© technology! This piece pushes the boundaries of what is possible as now BOTH sides feature incredibly high relief in proof finish! High relief that has been pushed to levels 100% higher than what was previously possible!
The argali (Mongolian for ram) is the largest species of wild sheep that roams the highlands of western East Asia, the Himalayas, Tibet, and the Altai Mountains. They can stand up to 135 cm (4 ft) high and measuring up to 200 cm (7 ft) long. They are adapted to great cold, aridity and very high elevations up to 5800 m (19000 ft.). Adult argali eat 16-19 kg (35-42 lb) of food a day predominantly grass.
- 3 different technology used in the coin!
- Smartminting® (Ultra High Relief)
- Great gift for a wildlife lover!
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.
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.
