Anonymous Mint proudly presents an epic new six coin series, Anne Stokes Dragons. Currently, Anne Stokes is one of the top fantasy artists in the world creating eye-catching, striking designs. This Limited Edition series captures a selection of her awe-inspiring dragons in .999 Fine Silver. Master Sculptor Luigi Badia is credited with creating sculpts that give the images a three-dimensional appearance. Included in the series are: Friend or Foe, Kindred Spirits, Noble Dragon, Water Dragon, Skull Embrace and Fierce Loyalty
Originally from London, England, Anne started her career as a merchandise designer for bands including the Rolling Stones and Queen. The fantasy art of Anne Stokes features life-like portrayals of art themes ranging from the romantic and mystical to the dark underworld of gothic subjects. Her early illustrations were also featured in Dungeons and Dragons. Today Anne continues to produce and expand the ranges of her highly acclaimed artwork.
The second coin in the series is Kindred Spirits. The art depicts a young, fair-haired maiden of royal position meeting with a dragon that is wrapped securely around a tree. The maiden rests her hand on the dragon’s tail while the two gaze knowingly at each other. A jeweled, spike-antlered crown adorns the maiden’s head while the dragon also has spiked horns on its head.
The standard reverse of the 1 oz Silver Round portrays an overhead view of a grand, open-winged dragon. An iconic dragon design by Anne Stokes. Encircled perfectly by its wingspan are the dragon’s turned, uplifted head and curved, spiked tail. Across the top rocker of the coin reads the text Anne Stokes Dragons while the bottom center text displays weight and purity. This specific design has appeared in various other artworks by Anne and has also been fashioned into a necklace pendant.
