New Nautical Ounce Series – Celebrate Historical Ships and American Exploration
The 2017 Rwanda Nautical Ounce coin commemorates the 525th anniversary of the exploration of America. This beautiful coin features the Christopher Columbus expedition's famous flagship, the Santa Maria.
The Santa Maria is prominently featured on the coin's obverse with a stylized compass and other nautical instruments in the background. The reverse of the coin shows the official seal of Rwanda with the face value below.
The Nautical Ounce Series includes three coins, each with a unique minting aspect. The 1 oz Silver coin will be produced only from August 2017 through March 2018, ensuring low mintages and high popularity. The 1 oz Proof Silver coin will see a mintage cap of 1,000 coins, while the 1 oz Gold coin will have an even lower mintage of just 500. This very limited production adds further collectible appeal to the .999 fine Silver and .999 fine Gold content.
These coins are struck in Germany, by the same mint that brings you the ever-popular Rwanda Wildlife Series. With impeccable craftsmanship and limited mintages, these coins are anticipated to sell quickly. Get in on this series at ground level and secure your coins from APMEX today!
