Seven Wonders of the Ancient World
APMEX is proud to present the third release of the exclusive Seven Wonders of the Ancient World series. This series will include seven releases all featuring worldwide limited mintages of 7,777 Silver and 77 Gold, respectively. Each release of new Silver and Gold rounds features a design dedicated to a mystic wonder of the ancient world, an effigy of a historical figure relevant to the subject and a denomination appropriate to the time period.
Once considered the tallest man-made structure in the world standing at least 300 feet in height, the Lighthouse at Alexandria was built by the Greek Ptolemaic Kingdom of Ancient Egypt during the reign of Ptolemy II Philadelphus around 280 BC. Sometimes referred to as the Pharos of Alexandria, the lighthouse was constructed of stone and remained standing until three earthquakes between the years of 956 and 1323 AD tremendously damaged the structure, causing this ancient wonder to be abandoned before falling into complete ruin. This 1 oz Silver round features a detailed depiction of the lighthouse and the pharaoh during the time of its construction, Ptolemy II Philadelphus. In addition to the detailed lighthouse and pharaoh, the round also features the denomination of a Tetradrachm, a currency commonly used during the time when the lighthouse remained standing.
The Lighthouse at Alexandria release follows the widely collected Colossus of Rhodes and Hanging Gardens of Babylon releases. With low mintages, beautiful design elements and unique details, these rounds immediately captured the attention of collectors everywhere. Act now to continue your collection with the third release featuring the Lighthouse at Alexandria before supplies sell out!
