2020 5 oz Niue Island The Eight Protectors Series - Goddess of Mercy with One Thousand Hands Antiqued High Relief Silver Coin
The 5 oz fine-silver coin is struck in a new minting technique that combines 28.5 oz of copper in between two layers of fine-silver resulting in super ultra-high relief while being topped off with silver antique finishing. The technique allows the coin to have an incredible weight and feel in the hand together with its 120mm diameter size. The collectible highlights the bodhisattva as the focal point on the reverse with many of the thousand hands with title surrounding the character. While the obverse features a “bagua/8 symbols” with a wheel of 12 zodiac animals, with the Rat highlighted as the animal the bodhisattva is protecting in the year 2020, finished with a round shaped yin-yang as the backdrop for the legal tender.
The collectible coin comes together with a specially designed certificate of authenticity where its serial number will continue to run from the previous series. The collectible coin and certificate are enclosed in a carefully thought-out thematic packaging box, designed and filled with details (not shown in mock-up) that will surely enhance the buying and unboxing experience for all collectors.
