artincoins posted a topic in SilverThis beautiful 3 Ounce .999 Silver coin is the fourth issue in the highly sought after Mandala Art series and features the Moresque decorations, a form of art made of stylized plants. The coin has a beautiful gemstone insert, Antique Finish and delivers in an elegant case, along with the Certificate of Authenticity. Strictly limited mintage to only 500 pieces worldwide. The reverse of the coin depicts the highly intricate detailed Mandala design surrounding a Moresque pattern. In the center a beautiful gemstone as heart of the coin. The obverse of the coin depicts the Fiji Coat of Arms and the inscriptions of the country of origin, face value, purity and weight. Background: Moresque is an obsolete alternative term to “Moorish” in English, and in the arts has some specific meanings. By itself the word is used of stylized plant-based forms of tendrils and leaves found in ornament and decoration in the applied arts in Renaissance Europe that are derived from the arabesque patterns of Islamic ornament. Like their Islamic ancestors, they differ from the typical European plant scroll in being many-branched and spreading rather than forming a line in one direction. The use of half-leaves with their longest side running along the stem is typical for both. First found in 15th-century Italy, especially Venice, moresques continue in the Mannerist and Northern Mannerist styles of the 16th century.

NewMSmatist15 posted a topic in SilverHas anyone on the forum picked one of these up or seen them floating around on eBay or other websites? They are sold out at Modern Coin Mart, see the link below. I completely missed it! It seems the Royal Mint are continuing with a tradition started in 2015 of having multiple Britannias available per year. This is the 3rd type as far as I can tell. For 2018 there are the textured background silver Britannia coins known as the "radial sunburst" coins and designated as such on NGC labels, the Oriental Border coins, and now this plain fields coin which is simply listed as a DPL on the NGC label. Limited mintage as far as I know and they are still available raw from the Royal Mint last I checked. Let me know your thoughts! https://www.moderncoinmart.com/2018-great-britain-1-oz-silver-britannia-2-coin-scarce-and-unique-coin-division-ngc-ms70-dpl-fdi.html
