Evolution of Life

CIT’s new Evolution of Life series started off with a bang in 2015. The first issue «Ammonite» was exceptionally well received and sold out immediately. The brilliant rose-gold gilded fossil rose high off the rock matrix thanks to incredible smartminting relief. The realistic depiction made the first coin an instant classic.

The gold coin motifs mirror those of the larger silver coins, if in reduced complexity and design. Instead of a partially excavated fossil on a rock matrix background, the little coins show the isolated fossil on a proof surface with English name, year of issue and series name. Despite their small size, the minting is incredibly rich in detail.

In general the series features select fossils from various geologic periods. Stay tuned for what will be unearthed next…
