This incredible 2 oz silver coin portrays Atlantis – the sunken city. The peculiar feature of the coin is its dome shape.
In Plato's dialogues “Timaeus and Critias”, Atlantis was described in detail as a lost civilization that was swallowed by the sea. The legend of Atlantis is a story that tells us about moral and spiritual people who lived in a highly advanced and utopian civilization. But then they became greedy, petty, and “morally bankrupt”. And as Orser said, “the gods became angry because the people had lost their way and turned to immoral pursuits”.
The reverse of the coin presents a wonderful and detailed image of the sunken city Atlantis with a beautiful water surface effect. The coin features an innovative technology to replicate the water surface. The obverse of the coin depicts the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
An impressive coin depicting one of the most famous mythological sunken cities from Plato's work!
