2011 Niue Silver $1 Amber Route Series Carnuntum

Product Details

Mintage of only 10,000 coins!
This beautiful coin is part of the series that pays tribute to the main cities which lay along the ancient route of commercial contacts. The route connected the European states at the Mediterranean Sea and the lands on the southern shore of the Baltic Sea. The route was named after the major object of the traveler's desire which was amber.

On the obverse is an image of a cart which ambers were carried by the Romans from Baltic Sea to Italy. Behind the cart on the left is an image of a head of the Roman. The background has an image of a map with the Baltic Sea outlined. There is also an effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. The reverse design features an image of triumphal arch the Heidentor, which was build for Emperor Constantinus II. Carnuntum was for a long period and important cultural and economic center on the map of the Roman Empire. There is also an image of an antique sculpture of the goddess Venus. The lower part of the coin includes an image of a Roman coin dating back to the times of the existence of the Amber Route and an amber insertion.

Each coin comes encapsulated and with a Certificate of Authenticity from the Mint of Poland.

      Comments about Niue 2011 Silver $1 Amber Route Series - Carnuntum:

      I own the entire series, bought this issue from APMEX at a very competitive price. If you like the antique finished coins being produced these days, this series will not disappoint. It was only fitting for the mint to add the amber insert to these issues as this series tells some of the story of the ancient Amber Route.
