Why purchase this perfectly struck 2020 Airplane Propeller Black Proof 2 oz. Silver coin?
The propeller as a means for propulsion can be traced back to the ancient Greek scientist Archimedes in 200 BC, who invented a screw-shaped contraption for water movement. In the mid-1400s, the screw concept was adapted as a theory for flight by Leonardo da Vinci. A product of the Mayer Mint, utilizing CIT's smartminting technology, this high relief black proof coin containing 2 Troy oz. of .999 fine silver celebrates the modern technological marvel of the airplane propeller. Mintage is limited to only 999 proofs.
Stunningly Detailed Propeller Design
A close-up view of a single propeller airplane is featured on the reverse, with the common wish for a good flight between pilots, "BLUE SKIES & TAILWINDS" inscribed at upper right. A gauge from the cockpit instrument panel appears in the background.
Centered on the obverse is sculptor Ian Rank-Broadley's effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. Inscribed "ELIZABETH II," "10 DOLLARS," "COOK ISLANDS" and "2020."
