“The release of a nation’s first bullion coin happens only once and with such a small limited minting, we’re expecting the remaining coins to be in extraordinary demand.”
Exton, PA (PRWEB) September 3, 2010
The Franklin Mint, industry leader in fine collectibles, jewelry and coins is now offering the Tower of David gold bullion coin, the first gold bullion ever issued by the Bank of Israel and The Holy Land Mint. The remarkable worldwide mintage is limited to a total of just 3,600 coins. “With such a low minting, we’re very fortunate to have secured a limited number of these magnificent coins in their original official government packaging. We’re excited to be able to offer them to the public,” says Walter J. Kole, Chief Numismatist for The Franklin Mint.
Bold, Powerful and Ancient Artistry
Designed by Meir Eshel, the Tower of David is the very first coin in a new annual series from The Holy Land Mint, aptly named “Jerusalem of Gold.” The coin’s obverse bears a roaring lion, The Lion of Megiddo, the exact design from a 2800 year old ancient seal discovered in the archaeological digs at Megiddo (Armageddon), in the Jordan Valley. The reverse of the coin depicts the famous Tower of David–an iconic landmark near Jaffe Gate (originally constructed in Second Century BCE), rising above the walls of the Old City of Jerusalem.
A Rapid Sell-out Anticipated
The Tower of David bullion coin has a diameter of 32 millimeters (over 1¼ inches) and contains one Troy ounce of .9999 Fine Gold. While the official release date was Jerusalem Day, May 12, 2010, many coin collectors have not seen or heard about this release until now. “The release of a nation’s first bullion coin happens only once and with such a small limited minting, we’re expecting the remaining coins to be in extraordinary demand.” says Mr. Kole.
