2015 Niue 1/2 oz Silver Merry Christmas w/Angel (Box & COA)
Mintage of only 999 coins!
This coin makes a great Christmas gift and features a 4 angle latent image that allows the snow crystals to change right in front of your eyes! For the first time in coin production an innovative technique has been used the 4-angle latent image - thanks to which a snow beauty appearing under an inscription changes right in front of our eyes. Depending on the angle of inclination of the coin we can see four dierent snowflakes.
For the most wonderful holiday of the year, the Mint of Poland struck a one-of-a-kind coin presenting the first photographs of snowflakes, made in 1880 by Wilson A. Bentley! The author took thousands of photographs on the basis of which he discovered that every snow crystal is unique and no two are alike. What add charm to the coin are images of two famous angels from the "Sistine Madonna" painting by Raphael Santi.
