Unique 2016 6 oz. Silver Proof Mount Vesuvius in Original Mint Packaging

While history is full of many events and lessons, the eruption of Mount Vesuvius that destroyed Pompeii is always a hot topic. The Mint of Poland struck the Mount Vesuvius coin shown here. Mintage is extremely limited, only 600 of these will be released. Each one is made of .9999 fine silver and weighs 6 Troy oz. While there are many features of this coin, one of the most fascinating is its shape. It was actually made to look like Mount Vesuvius.

A Three Dimensional Mt Vesuvius

The obverse of this coin is located on the base. It shows Ian Rank-Broadley's portrait of Queen Elizabeth II as well as the face value and the date. The inscriptions stating the weight and purity can be found on the obverse as well if you look closely at the small squares in the background area. The reverse is really something to see. Not only is it made in the shape of Mount Vesuvius, but the sides are decorated with Roman figures. The eye appeal alone makes this coin a great addition to any collection.

GEM Proof Condition in Original Mint Packaging

This coin is in GEM Proof condition and comes in its original themed Mint packaging. That includes a box with a Mount Vesuvius design which opens to reveal this impressive coin.
