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.
The 1st (and also the 2nd) edition of our new Steampunk series were an instant success and sold out immediately. Due to the intense demand and requests for other specifications, CIT is happy to release a bigger and bolder version in an impressive 1 kg edition!
The “big brother” of the 2 ounce version utilizes on 100 mm even more 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 details this coin has! The selected gilding enhances the look as well as pays tribute to the striking contrast elements that are characteristic of Steampunk. The only downside is that the mintage is smaller than the two ounces and is set at only 111 pieces.
