Humanity has been asking itself this since the dawn of civilization. "To the stars through difficulties” is the essence of "per aspera ad astra,” a saying originating from ancient times. This inscription is displayed on the 25 livres / Lira / pound silver coins of Le Grand, thereby sending out a clear message against anguish. Through bold honesty, this embossed piece of pure precious metal recaptures trust and confidence. (Livres is not an official currency and these are not government backed coins, they are struck with this to send the message as above).
The pure silver (999,9/1000) of the noble bullion guarantees security and preserves confidence. The precious collector and bullion coin is undoubtedly a safe investment in uncertain times. No wonder, as the exquisite embossing of .9999 fine silver is one of the few coins worldwide most closely approaching full purity.
Precisely conceptualized with modern artistry and design from multiple design award-winner Dirk Uhlenbrock (Ersteliga), the silver coin represents an innovation of the 'New Objectivity' movement.
This is an annual series that started in 2015. The designs all pay homage to endangered species around the world. They are available in two different presentations one in a sealed blister style assay card and also in a premium walnut presentation case. Mintages are limited to 500 in each style, and are almost 50% Sold out. They are minted by Leipziger Edelmetallverarbeitung one of the industry leaders in Europe.
For centuries, rhinoceroses have been an integral component of creative bodies of thought in contemporary art and culture. Owing to its enormous physique, the rhinoceros stands for strength, tranquility, and harmony with the environment. No creature on this planet leaves behind an image in the minds of people like the rhinoceros, be it as an example for something worth protecting, or as inspiration for some of the most valuable oil paintings in the world.
Globally revered and respected, the bear occupies a special place in humanity's collective consciousness. This creature bears witness to the global success and cohesion of humankind across borders and obstacles. This is the reason the third motif from the Wonderful World Series of Le Grand Mint bears its image, shining in the purest silver. Embossed in precious metal, the bear embodies respect, strength and courage. The bear is an international star, representing the pride of many cities and regions, from Berlin to Madrid, as their heraldic animal. Its habitat extends from tropical jungles to the North Pole. The lasting value of Le Grand Mint's silver bullion is equally poised for global success.
In 2017, They released an all new stand alone round as well title Hope & Happiness. It has a slightly modified obverse from the ongoing Wonderful World Series.
