Mintage of only 999 coins!
This .999 pure silver coin has achieved the impossible: extracting real DNA and conserving it in a coin. This 2 oz silver proof coin shows the actual Cheetah that the DNA was extracted from. In a complex procedure the DNA helix is extracted, coloured and sealed in a small glass vial. Of course the animal is not harmed during the process, collecting the tissue doesn't hurt the big cat at all. The obverse depicts the Democratic Republic of the Congo emblem. Comes to you in a box and original capsule and with a certificate of authenticity.
