1 oz. Tree of Life silver coin, minted in 2020 by Sunshine Mint.
The Tree of Life is a mythological symbol that dates back even to the time before the birth of Jesus Christ. Different religions and philosophical currents, with principles that are even at odds with each other, share the use of this icon, which in most cultures is related to immortality or fertility.
This is one of the most powerful symbols in history, as it has formed part of totally opposing cultures and has served as an influence for other icons.
The design of the tree is found in the cross, in which it takes the form of an almond tree. The tree is suspended in the air and its roots do not rest on the earth, but on a name: Yahweh (ה ו ה י), which translates as the one who gives life. The level of detail of the trunk is magnificent, as the different layers of the trunk can be distinguished.
Another of the most striking features of the coin is the background: it is made up of small spiral lines arranged in a regular pattern, which converge in a small diameter in the centre, revealing a small surface in the middle of the trunk.
On the face is the face of the monarch Elizabeth II coined by the artist Ian-Rank Broadley. Around it, the Queen's name, the year of issue, the face value (2 dollars) and Niue, the region where the coin was produced. The face also has a background of lines, only the lines are straight and meet exactly in the centre, giving a sense of movement.
The Tree of Life coin was minted in 2020 in 1 ounce of 99.999% pure silver, has a diameter of 38.95 millimetres and a thickness of 2.8. Complete the entire collection at the best possible price!
