Product Description

Get this revolutionary tour-de-force of the minter's art, Frozen in Ice! Two technologies combine on one coin! Vibrant, full color unites with the new, cutting-edge 3D dome technology on this pure silver proof depicting a ferocious scimitar sabertoothed tiger, the sabre tooth cat smilodon!

Frozen in Ice! Get this dramatic and colorful window into prehistory! Experience one of the amazing Ice Age species that once roamed North America. This unique coin captures the fierce scimitar cat - Homotherium serum - the iconic sabretoothed tiger - in detailed engraving and vibrant, full color under a frosted chunk of "ice"!

This innovative and dramatic approach to coin design, inspired by the biodiversity and majesty of our planet's past natural history, is struck in one full troy ounce of pure silver. With a total worldwide mintage of only 5,000 (far too low for such an innovative and affordable pure silver proof), a fast sell out at the Mint is expected!

Mother Earth Side ViewInvestment Note - This revolutionary, low-mintage silver proof has just been announced by the Mint, where a quick sellout is expected.

An Original Work of Art!
This one troy ounce, 99.99% pure silver coin features a stunning proof finish, exceptional engraving, and vibrant full color. The design by Canadian artist Glen Loates portrays a portrays a scimitar sabre-tooth cat in standing atop a rocky outcrop in a vast grassland. The image, reviewed for scientific accuracy by palaeontologists of the Royal Tyrrell Museum of Palaeontology, presents a full-body portrait of the Ice Age predator, with its fierce teeth on display as it opens its mouth. A frosted “ice” like dome overlays the portrait. The portion of the portrait under the ice is colored, while the remainder of the image is engraved-only, giving the impression of a colorful window to North America's ancient past.
