The 2020 Tiffany edition was released at WMF 2020 in Berlin and CIT was overwhelmed by the success of the limited 5 oz gold edition.
Collectors and dealers have asked for further specifications besides the 2 oz antique finish edition which saw its final issue during that same show. Following this request, CIT is happy to announce TWO first time ever releases!
A 5 oz black proof 65 mm edition partly gilded limited to 555 pieces and a 3 oz proof 55 mm edition limited to 999 pieces.
Both magnificent pieces highlight the architectural wonder of Naghsh-e Jahan Square in Isfahan, Iran, also known as Imam Square. This Unesco World Heritage site is one of the largest city center squares in the world and a treasure of Persian architecture and art. The highly detailed relief honors the architecture of the Sheikh Lotfollah Mosque that is located on the east side of the city square. With its magnificent arches and tile work, it amazes all visitors.
The artful Tiffany style glass is beautifully integrated in this design. Smartminting© makes it possible to combine the stunning details of the tiffany series with a proof and black proof finish. This is cutting edge of modern minting and will excite coin lovers around the world. The contrast that you see between the black proof finish and the proof finish will show you how two different, yet equally beautiful coins with the same design can look! The results these two issues show are breathtaking.
With all the loyal followers to this series, we expect a complete sellout of BOTH of these monumental issues.
