The antique finish is specially applied to the rounds at the mint. It adds a deep and dark texture to certain details on the round to make the details in the art really pop.
2 oz .999 Fine Silver round bearing the roman numerals MMXVI (2016), representing the time when the concept and design were completed.
Every round comes in a capsule with an individually numbered certificate of authenticity (COA).
The reverse of this coin bears a image of a seductive, tempting Succubus.
The succubus coin is much more than just a cool image of a pretty girl (although it certainly is). The succubus image has a much deeper and metaphorical meaning to us. It represents the struggle against any form of alluring temptation that may be wrapped in a seductive package but could ultimately lead to your demise.
In traditional folklore the succubus was a beautiful seductive demon who would seduce men, once these men were seduced their health would deteriorate and they would ultimately die. It's possible you could relate to a relationship of this nature where a partner was slowly drawing the life out of you, but on an even deeper level we feel the temptation and deteriorating effects can apply to so many aspects of one's life, not only relationships.
We also feel the succubus can serve as a constant reminder to understand the deeper meaning of anything and ensure we are not blinded by it's beauty or allure.
Lastly we also draw great strength knowing we have overcome challenges and temptations in our lives to breed character and form our personalities. This ultimately led us to our first release titled "Temptation of the Succubus"
The obverse bears our Pheli Mint logo. It is an artistic representation of the symbols that are meaningful to us.
The medical staff, dream catcher and eagle feather element were maintained from Leo's original design.
From there, we continued to add meaningful elements that were important to us.
The maple leaf to signify Canada and the pride we have in being Canadians and all the opportunity that offers.
The animals on each side of the medical staff are chosen by Phil and Eli to further represent each of them and what they hold dear:
