  • Composition: .999 triple fine silver (Ag 999/1,000)

Obverse: Depicted on the obverse is a meticulously engraved portrait of Nicolaus Copernicus, grasping an armillary sphere — a symbol of his revolutionary heliocentric model. The design's focal point is the Sun, accentuated with 24k gold, underscoring its pivotal role in Copernicus' model. This representation pays homage to his pioneering role in the Scientific Revolution. The intricate details of the solar system and Copernicus’ likeness are brought to life in highest proof quality enhanced by the luster of .999 fine silver. A gold-plated design, partially superimposed with 24k gold, unifies all issues in The Giants of Poland Collection Reverse: Drawing inspiration from Polish tradition, the image features the national personification of Poland, Polonia, joining Britannia and Lady Liberty on contemporary coinage. Designed by Antoni Madeyski, the design showcases a woman's profile adorned with a wreath against a radiant sunlight backdrop. This design first gained prominence on the silver 10 zloty coin in 1932. For this issue, Polish engraver Monika Molenda masterfully adds a striking crown design. Intertwined leaves of the Polish oak and laurel embrace the rim. The motto of The Giants of Poland Collection, “Gigantivm · Hvmeris · Insidentes,” honors the remarkable sons and daughters of the Polish nation. To the right, the Polish state emblem, the White Eagle, a design by Wojciech Jastrzębowski for Second Polish Republic coins, is displayed.

Exquisite Coins

We are ecstatic about this collection. Beautifully crafted, the detailing is impressive. Being of Polish descent (1st generation) and a Polishphile, I love that the greats of Polish history are immortalized this way. As a precious metals coin collector, what a fabulous addition to our collections.

Dear Stan! Thank you so much! Cieszymy się, i dla nas jest to wyjątkowa emisja. The hand-cutting of those orbits, along with the chapter titles of Copernicus' work, was a slow, meticulous, and profound experience. We thank you for your recognition. Cieszymy się, że nasza praca znalazła uznanie. Nasza artystka wspomina, że ręczne rzeźbienie orbit i tytułów rozdziałów dzieła Kopernika na nich, było powolne, staranne i pełne znaczeń ❤️

Panie Bohdanie, pięknie dziękujemy ! Wiele radości sprawiło nam rzeźbienie tytułów rozdziałów dzieła Kopernika (zaznaczonych na fragmentach elips) -- cieszymy się, że sprawiliśmy radość. Thanks so much ! We really enjoyed carving those chapter titles from Copernicus' work (highlighted on the ellipses) early on. And could not be happier you are enjoying it today ❤️
