Exceptional Design and Craftsmanship

The coin’s reverse stunningly portrays the head and shoulders of a plague doctor, draped in his traditional attire, complete with the bird-beak shaped mask. This mask is meticulously gilded in 24 carat gold, creating a striking contrast against the antique-finished, dark background strewn with human bones and skulls, symbolising the grim reality of the plague years. The high relief minting enhances the depth and detail of the design, making it a remarkable piece for any collection.

Quality and Rarity

The obverse of the coin features the regal profile of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, rendered with an antique finish that complements the overall aesthetic of the piece. Surrounding Her Majesty are inscriptions of her title, the issuing country, the face value of $5, and the year 2019, alongside the coin’s purity, AG 999. The rimless design is polished off with a delicate, beaded band that encircles these inscriptions, lending an added elegance to its presentation.

This coin is not only a piece of art but also a rare collectable with a limited mintage of just 500 pieces worldwide. Each coin contains 2 Troy ounces of 99.9% pure silver and measures 50 mm in diameter, confirming its substantial and tangible value.

Presentation and Collectability

Presented in a crystal-clear display box, this coin comes with a graphic that serves as a certificate of authenticity, ensuring its quality and collectability. The selective gilding, along with the antique finish and the historical significance of the plague doctor’s mask, make this coin a desirable acquisition for both seasoned collectors and those new to the numismatic community.
