2012 Niger Silver 1000 Francs CFA The Mecca-Qibla Kaaba Compass

2012 Niger Silver 1000 Francs CFA The Mecca-Qibla Kaaba Compass

Product Details

Mintage of only 1,434!
This .999 fine Silver coin will show you the way to Mecca. Mecca is the birthplace of Islam's prophet Mohammed and the Muslim's holiest city. The reverse has an arrow that orients itself toward the North Pole. The coin’s rim is symbolically subdivided into 36 segments. The position 0/36, for Mecca, is represented by both minarets and the conventionalized Kaaba.

Several cities are listed with a number on the enclosure. To find the direction of Mecca, you simply turn the coin until the arrow points to the corresponding number of your city. The minarets and Kabaa then indicate in which direction Mecca lies.

This set is especially suitable as a gift to express one’s appreciation towards the receiver. It is not essential to take the set on journeys. It also does its service on a desk or shelf by showing the way to Mecca.

On the obverse is the coat of arms of the Republic of Niger and the face value. The coin comes to you in a beautiful box with a certificate of authenticity.

    Comments about Niger 2012 Silver 1000 Francs CFA The Mecca-Qibla Kaaba Compass:

    I bought as my first purchase with AMPEX the Côte d'Ivoire 2010 Silver 1500 Francs CFA The Mecca-Qibla Compass and my father loves this coin and this coin is just as impressive and beautiful. With it being a very limited edition I expect that its value will rise in the future. It is, first and foremost, a very aesthetically pleasing to the eye and amazingly very functional.

    Service and delivery comments:

    AMPEX bar none has delivered all of my orders promptly and safely and I hope they do not change because it is perfect.

    Everyone forgot to mention what's the weight of this coin.. However, with 5 cm across it must be beyond one troy ounce, maybe two..
