Each 2018 2 oz Silver Reverse Proof Solomon Islands Legends and Myths Medusa Coin is available to you for individual purchase inside of a beautiful, circular presentation case. The lid of the case has a clear surface and the “LM” privy mark of the Legends and Myths Series. Included with your purchase is a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
On the obverse and reverse surfaces of the silver coins in this series you’ll find a reverse proof finish. This indicates that the coins have deeply-mirrored, clear design features and strong, frosted matte background elements. This creates stunning, unique visual contrast between the design and its background field when viewed in person.
Additionally, these 2018 2 oz Silver Reverse Proof Solomon Islands Legends and Myths Medusa Coins are double high-relief struck. Each blank is struck under immense pressure in a coining press to create deep, concave surfaces on each side. This enables the design elements on either side to stand out clearly in 3D relief.
The obverse of the 2018 2 oz Silver Reverse Proof Solomon Islands Legends and Myths Medusa Coin bears the right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. In this fourth-generation design, Ian Rank-Broadley offers yet another depiction of Her Majesty during her long reign as Queen of England. Broadley created this image in 1998 for the Royal Mint.
On the reverse of the Reverse Proof Solomon Islands Legends and Myths Medusa Coins is an image that you’ll be safe to look at unless you believe in Greek mythology of course. Medusa was said to have been one of the amazingly gorgeous Gorgon sisters, but after incurring the wrath of the goddess Athena she was struck down with a head of hair that featured poisonous snakes and ugly facial features. One glance at her and men turned to stone.
