Equilibrium 1-ounce silver coin, minted in 2018 by Pressburg Mint.
The Equilibrium series is the most important collection in the Pressburg Mint's catalogue: not only because it is the most ambitious in terms of design, but also because each coin carries an implicit message that revolves around the theme of balance.
In this case, the Equilibrium Butterfly speaks of the danger of disharmony between the power of gene editing, technological achievements and the natural genetic code.
On the cross of the coin is a butterfly, which occupies almost the entire space on the reverse. The most remarkable thing about the butterfly is its design: its wings appear to be artificially constructed with motifs reminiscent of DNA, and both on the wings and on its face is the symbol of yin and yang.
Around the butterfly there is a succession of letters that resemble the genetic code that occupy the entire bottom of the cross. The name of the coin appears at the top and the year of issue at the bottom.
The design of the face is also spectacular. Here, there are two distinct parts with a thick line running around the edge of the coin. On the outside, a genetic sequence accompanies the entire edge of the coin until it meets at the top and bottom, where the coin's specifications are found. On the inside is the face of Queen Elizabeth II designed by Ian Rank-Broadley.
The Equilibrium Butterfly coin was minted in 2019 with 1 ounce of 99.999% pure silver, has a diameter of 38.75 millimetres and a thickness of 2.8 millimetres. Get this wonderful bullion and we will deliver it to your home with the greatest of ease!
