Deliberately stamped in exactly the same manner as the ancient tetradrachm coins of Greece, first we melt a 1oz flan of 24k pure gold and then strike both sides of the coin at the same time.
Each 1oz portion of gold is meticulously weighed by Hoover and Strong and bagged individually for precision. The gold is then melted by us into medallions and weighed again to ensure that it is 1oz prior to stamping.
Modern dies have a collar that forces the gold into a perfectly round coin. Ours allows the metal to spread, which makes every coin a one-of-a kind.
The coin is approximately 1 1/16″ / 27mm in diameter x 4.6mm thick.
Each coin is placed in a velveteen bag and then placed in a natural jute pouch for protection.
We are proud to use only 100% RECYCLED GOLD purchased from Hoover and Strong, refiners for over 100 years.
The original artwork is inspired by a piece of art found at the Alhambra Palace in Spain. The Moors and the Christians were constantly trying to keep the peace between each other and symbolized in this artwork is mutual cooperation. We added the word ‘LOVE’, which is written as a mirror.
The back of the coin depicts our Itali Lambertini log surrounded by a medieval rose bower.
The edge of the coin depicts the information about the coin:
1 troy oz
.999 pure gold
100% recycled gold
2010 (the year we dreamed up the idea of making a coin)
