New Smartminting release – Unearth the Terracotta Warriors

In 1974 a discovery was made that would captivate the world … 8,000 warriors made of terracotta were uncovered, their purpose to guard the first Emperor of China, Qin Shi Huang for all of his eternal afterlife.

To honour these legendary Terracotta Warriors, a palace approved coin has been issued that has been struck from the rarely used coin material, copper, featuring 3 of these infamous warriors.

Smartminting Technology

This coin has been made using rare innovative smartminting technology, which provides an unprecedented level of intricate detail with extraordinary high relief.

This means that the incredibly detailed warriors on the reverse and the ceremonial carriage on the obverse stand out in 3-dimentions on BOTH sides of the coin and have been struck to a high-quality proof like finish.

Only a small number of mints across the world are able to use smartminting technology due to its extreme complexity, this means that limited ranges using this technique have been released making them highly sought after by collectors.

Only 250 available

Out of a worldwide edition limit of 5,000, we have only been able to secure 250 of these coins for our collectors. Make sure to get yours today before this limited stock sells out.
