|The Very Highest Quality Silver Coins...|
|The Millennium Masterpiece Silver Coin Collection|
A Coin in Two Halves
The intriguing coin from the island nations of Kiribati and Samoa for instance, is typical of the unusual coins in the Masterpiece Millennium Collection. Although close neighbours in the Pacific Ocean, Kiribati and Samoa are separated by the International Date Line and so will be, respectively, the first and last countries to welcome in the new Millennium. To reflect this extraordinary position the two have united in one celebratory coin - each half being legal tender in its own country.
Storycards & Booklets
Each commemorative reverse design, whether historic, futuristic or symbolic, has a story of its own to tell. The story is told on the storycard sent with each coin so that together, the twenty-four give a complete picture of your Masterpiece Millennium Collection.
The colourful booklet, specially designed to accompany the Masterpiece Millennium Collection, gives a fascinating insight into man's early perception of time with such stories as: how the manufacture of timepieces evolved, including the story of famous clockmaker John Harrison; and why in 1884 Greenwich was chosen to become the Prime Meridian of the World and thus the source of world time.
Held securely by a satin ribbon, the booklet can be safely stored in the lid of the case.
Authenticated by the Royal Mint
Each coin is accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity. The collection has its own Certificate with space for your name to be recorded as its original owner
Environment & Preservation
The future of the environment and, in particular, the preservation of Earth's wildlife will undoubtedly be an issue of continuing concern in the new millennium and this is the chosen theme for the commemorative reverse of the silver Proof millennium coin from the Falkland Islands. And appropriately so since the Falklands, a cluster of more than 700 rugged islands lying deep in the South Atlantic, support an amazing variety of wildlife and the, wishing to keep this unique and precious heritage safe for future generations, are very active in the field of conservation.
Creatures of land, sea and air, representative of the great variety that live and thrive on these remote yet fascinating islands, are beautifully depicted on the outer ring of this magnificent bi-colour coin. The centre, framed by a mariner's rope to symbolise the Islanders' dependence on the bounty of the sea, pictures the Falklands lit by the first dawn of the new millennium.
