Coin Invest Trust (CIT) is located in the Principality of Liechtenstein, a tiny country high in the Alps between Austria and Switzerland. Half a century ago, the company was just an obscure coin dealer. Today, the company offers coins struck using some of the leading technology in the industry. The company is at the forefront of coin design and innovation. Each year, it provides over 350 releases, many of which have unique design elements that make them stand out in any collection.
While some mints cater exclusively to high-end collectors, CIT coins are different. The company offers many of its coins in gold, silver, and base metals, which means that even collectors on tight budgets can enjoy its stunning and unique offerings.
Collectors who love coins with colorful imagery will not be disappointed with the silver coins of CIT. Many of these coins use vibrant tones that bring their subjects to life. One of the best examples of this is the 2022 American Alligator, which shows the subject in silver in a colorful blue water and marsh environment. In addition to issuing silver coins that mark important events, like the sinking of the RMS Titanic, the 200th anniversary of Napoleon’s death, they also issue several ongoing coin series, like their Woodland Spirit and Trapped series.
While typically available with silver and base metal options, some CIT designs are simply best suited for gold. The Palau Inca Sun God, for example, shows the figure in the metal in which the Incas themselves depicted him. CIT is also known for its “Special Shapes” series, which began in 2007 and features little .5 gram gold coins struck into unique and innovative shapes, allowing collectors to add masterfully struck gold to their collection that is relatively affordable. Some of the issues include skulls, guitars, sailboats, and even a video game controller!
CIT’s coins are simply stunning, yet their gold and silver options may be out of reach for budget-conscious collectors. Fortunately, copper options are available for many of the company’s products. Many of their stunning issues are struck in silver, gold, and copper so that collectors can enjoy the intricate designs no matter what the precious metal and price point. The 2021 Mongolia Mystic Wolf is just one example of a CIT coin design that loses nothing when struck into a base metal. This option is perfect for lovers of wildlife, as well as those who appreciate ultra-high relief strikes.
CIT offers coins for everyone. The company provides a wide range of products that include natural wonders, cultural icons, historic sites, sports, and more. Few, if any, collectors could browse their diverse offerings and fail to find at least one “must-have.” A collection of nothing more than CIT coins could hardly be considered lacking.
In 2016, CIT introduced smartminting® technology that dramatically increased the relief that was possible to strike on coins. Coin designs raised higher from the surface of each piece make enhanced detail possible and help bring the coins to life without using extra material. The surface area of a coin and, therefore, the design it bears can be increased up to 183%. This remarkable technology can be applied to antique, proof, and colored coins. Many CIT coins utilize Smartminting® technology. Some prominent examples include the 2017 100th Anniversary of Graf Zeppelin, 2022 Isle of Man Nobles, 2022 Legacy of the Pharaoh’s coins, and more!
Four years after the introduction of smartminting® technology came smartminting® reloaded. This doubled the relief that was made possible with smartminting technology and made high relief possible near the edges. The 2021 Mongolian Mystic Wolf coins were struck using this technology.
