Why buy this 4-Layer Antiqued 2020 Solomon Islands $10 100 g Silver Forbidden City?
Beijing's imperial palace, known as the Forbidden City, was built in the early 15th century. Consisting of nearly 1000 buildings, up until 1912, it served as the home of Chinese emperors, the last of whom abandoned it. The site has been a museum since 1925 and earned World Heritage Site status in 1987. This coin was issued to celebrate 600 years since the completion of its construction. It has a unique antique finish executed with a 4-layer technique. That technique creates a stunning 3-D effect. Struck from 100 g of .999 fine silver, the domed coin is part of a mintage of just 999 pieces. It will arrive in GEM Brilliant Uncirculated condition.
