Steampunk has become a cultural phenomenon. Having an impact on everything from film to fashion, this subculture of Science Fiction has grown in popularity and influence since it was first mentioned in the 1980’s.
Loosely defined as combining Victorian age mechanical technology with modern applications, its unique look can be seen everywhere. In a nutshell Steampunk is what people thought about the future with their knowledge and techniques 200 years ago.
CIT is proud to introduce a coin that utilizes the enhanced smartminting© technology with ultra high relief of today combined with old world design elements that create a coin like no other. Look closely at all the mechanical detail this coin has! The selected gilding enhances the look as well as pays tribute to the striking contrast elements that are characteristic of Steampunk.
You can almost envision this antique finished coin in motion! Struck from 2 ounces of pure silver and limited to only 555 for the world, it is destined for greatness.
