How Often Do You
Really Get The Chance
This is a flawless six-coin set of trial strikes produced for the Somalia 1998 $20 Titanic Commemorative Coin! This set is comprised of six coins showing the obverse and reverse of the Titanic coin struck in 1oz pure silver, cupro-nickel and golden-bronze. Each side of the normal coin is mated and struck with a special reverse die that states it is a Trial Strike and identifies the metal it is struck in (see the example of the bronze reverse shown above).
They are "cameo" proof strikes; the backgrounds are perfect reflective "blazing-mirrors" (which show up jet-black in scans) and the designs are frosty white (which, of course show up white in scans). The contrast between the mirror-like backgrounds and design is stunning! The silver pieces weigh exactly one ounce and are struck in pure .999 silver while the cupro-nickel and golden-bronze issues weigh about 26 grams each. All are 39 mm in diameter which is a bit larger than a U.S. silver dollar. Add this rare set to your collection today!
