Own a gemstone born from the stars

Today you have the chance to own a gemstone attached to a Pure Gold Proof Coin.

Moldavite Tektite

The gemstone on your coin is called Moldavite Tektite and is the unique evidence of what can happen on the incredibly rare occasion that a meteorite hits the Earth. 

You see, the rocks surrounding the meteorite crash site are instantly melted and vaporised, before being catapulted into the atmosphere where they are shaped and turned into stunning pieces of glass, otherwise known as Moldavite Tektite.

Highly sought after

They can only be found at five widely separated locations on Earth. And it’s this scarcity, which understandably makes them highly sought after by tektite collectors whenever they are available.

What’s more, throughout the Middle Ages, they were highly prized and strictly reserved for those born of royal blood and nobility, often appearing on jewellery due to their unique colours and forms.

Small Gold

Struck from 0.5g of pure Gold, this coin is what is known as 'small' Gold – a collecting craze that is proving to be extremely popular among collectors worldwide.

Just 100 available

Due its incredibly small worldwide edition limit of just 5,000, we have been able to secure JUST 100 for UK collectors. So time really is of the essence.

If you want to be one of JUST 100 collectors to own this gemstone on a pure gold coin, make sure to secure yours today.
