Product Details
Made of solid oak from Austria, this ingenious collector "tower" comes in a dark red protective box. The tower is divided into five separate discs, each with a recess that houses and protects one of the five coins in the Austria’s Unsung Heroines series.

Many times larger than a real grain of salt, this is a collector case like no other. Beautiful yet practical, and simple yet sophisticated, it also emphasizes the historical importance of salt in the development of civilization. Easily divisible into four parts that are held together by magnets, the crystal not only provides space for the three coins in the series but also their certificates.

A grain of salt may be tiny, but the effect of salt production on human development was huge. Salt not only makes food tasty but also, and most importantly, preserves it. Preserving food is one of the oldest and most important human technologies, without which there would have been no storing and stockpiling, no ability to plan, an even more precarious existence and an uncertain future.

The salt crystal and the treasures hidden within it also crystallize in a wonderful way what is so special about the Salzkammergut region of Austria.

Box Highlights:
  • This coin display case easily stores the three coins in White Gold of Hallstatt series.
  • Coins and certificates of authenticity are not included.

Series: The White Gold of Hallstatt
Thousands of years before this region became a popular tourist destination, it was already flourishing, as it supplied half of central Europe with that most essential of substances – salt. At the southern end of the Salzkammergut, the picture-postcard village of Hallstatt lies on the shore of the lake of the same name. Inside the local mountains, salt is found in abundance and, exploited since prehistoric times, the Hallstatt salt mine is the world's oldest. During the Iron Age, salt mining and trade led to the prosperity of the people in and around Hallstatt, which gave its name to the Hallstatt culture, the archaeological culture linked to the people of the Early Iron Age in Europe.

As early as 1200 BC, the tools produced for mining salt in Hallstatt were highly sophisticated and cultural exchange with other peoples led to the import of exotic materials such as amber, glass, coral and ivory from as far afield as Africa and Asia. In the mines, the salt has preserved organic materials such as textiles, wood and leather, and artifacts decorated in styles that were widespread in Europe have survived in good condition. A simple and modest mining community only in appearance, prehistoric Hallstatt was highly advanced.
