A start of new series has been dedicated to the world famous maps, the first issue of which represents Universalis Cosmographia by a German cartographer Martin Waldseemüller. This impressive work of cartography art was originally published in 1507 and it is known as the first map to use the name "America". As a tribute to large original size of the map, this new fine silver work comes in a format of 20×15 cm note with the weight of only 30 grams.
The silver note imitates the scroll with the map in a finest detail, including the battered-like edges. The reverse side depicts a 12-piece map with surrounding inscriptions: name of the author, name of the map and the series. The obverse side shows the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II, with inscriptions denoting the face value, name of the country, metal fineness and note measurements. The note is accompanied by a packaging sleeve.
