Smartminting technology helped CIT multi-award winning designers come up with this ‘trapped’ concept…

Cleithrophobia is the fear of being trapped and this coin highlights that fear in a chilling way with the use of an incredibly complex manufacturing process called Smartminting© – which create beautiful pieces of coinage with a very special high quality Antique Finish.

This brand new coin concept originates from one of the CIT’s multiple award winning designers. The oppressive image of a trapped person is skillfully implemented on this fine, 1oz pure silver coin creating the appearance of a person screaming through a stretched fabric sheet.Spook-tacular I’m sure you will agree!

The Beautifully Evil Pandora’s Box…

PB Pandora Lifestyle - ‘Creeping’ it real this Halloween? An exclusive look into some of the world’s scariest coins…
Only 666 of these coins were minted – the number of the beast and common symbol of the devil.

This magnificently tragic 3oz pure silver coin features unbelievable high relief due to the fact it is minted and not cast. This means all the curses of the world, including demons and mythological creatures are made that more terrifying as they supposedly escape from the box’s vortex.

This coin has had a spellbinding reception from collectors and we have an extremely limited quantity of stock remaining. Click here to secure the Beautifully Evil Pandora’s Box coin for your collection >>

The Symbol of Death

AT Silver Deaths Head Hawkmoth Coin Lifestyle 1 1 - ‘Creeping’ it real this Halloween? An exclusive look into some of the world’s scariest coins…
A lapping minting technique has been used for the first time EVER on the Death’s Head Hawkmoth Black Proof Silver 2oz Coin.

It doesn’t get much more frightening that the Death’s Head Hawkmoth, with graceful wings signifying the fragility of life and the skull branding on its back as a stark reminder of looming death…

Featuring the very latest in minting techniques, this coins unique shape and shadowy black proof finish gives it yet another haunting element.

However, by far the most impressive part of this coin is the brand new ‘lapping’ technique which has been used for the first time EVER to create a bright, reflective surface which contrasts against the black proof finish.

The AC/DC coins that just keep selling out!

Blog Banner - The AC/DC coins that just keep selling out!

On this day 43 years ago High Voltage, the first internationally released studio album by Australian hard rock band AC/DC, was released.

The legendary band, formed by Scottish-born brothers Malcolm and Angus Young, have sold more than 200 million records worldwide, including 71.5 million albums in the United States, making them the tenth highest-selling artist in the United States and the 14th best-selling artist worldwide.

Record sell-outs

To celebrate “the greatest rock and roll band of all time”, a range of AC/DC coins were released across the world.

The officially licensed 2oz silver ‘Black Ice’ coin was issued and the worldwide edition limit of just 999 was completely sold out before the coin had even been released

Remarkably, another AC/DC coin, recently Issued by The Royal Australian Mint, sold out in less than 24 hours – that had an edition limit of 30,000! I cannot remember anything from this mint ever selling out so fast and amazingly this was only available to collectors in Australia and New Zealand.

However, perhaps the most iconic of all the coins is the High Voltage Silver Proof, featuring the cover of AC/DC’s first album ‘High Voltage’ with Angus Young in his iconic schoolboy outfit alongside the band’s infamous logo and a yellow lightning bolt.

This coin has a worldwide edition limit of just 5,000 and we managed to secure just 250 for our collectors. Unsurprisingly, interest has been incredibly high and it looks like this coin will follow suit with another full sell-out expected.  

AC/DC coins are hugely popular but around the world but more importantly, remarkably scarce. In years to come, this coin series will be spoken of as perhaps the most collectable music coins of all time.

The video we just can’t stop watching!

Blog Banner - The video we just can’t stop watching!

Videos going viral is nothing new; most will remember ‘Charlie bit my finger’, ‘Fenton’ or ‘Star Wars kid’.

However, perhaps the one video most did not expect to be a hit around the world was ‘The Classic Tetris World Championship Final’ (yes, there’s a Tetris World Championship).

I’ll set the scene.

Joseph Saelee, just 16 years old and a huge underdog, was facing 7 times World Champion Jonas Neubauer. Nobody gave him a chance.

After 26 minutes of playing, Neubauer, as expected, takes the lead. However, after a rare mistake, he crashes out.

Saelee needs another 108,120 points to win…just 3 Tetris’ will do it. He holds his nerve and with lightning fast reactions, upsets the odds and takes the title. 

The skill of the players is remarkable, I mean truly remarkable.

See the video for yourself, nearly 7 million others have watched it, you won’t be disappointed:

What’s so interesting is that when I showed this to some of my colleagues in the office they were initially not at all interested…30 seconds in they were hooked!

They loved the fact that such an old game, invented by a Russian back in 1984, was still so popular today and they couldn’t believe that the players were using an actual Nintendo Entertainment System from 1983.

One said, “I love how retro it is!” and I couldn’t agree more.

Retro has made a comeback and in a big way. In particular retro arcade games.

Our Space Invaders coin, that we launched last month, SOLD OUT in record time. Had we been able to source more, it would have sold double!

SOLD OUT: The Official Space Invaders Coin

It proved how incredibly collectable retro themed coins are, especially when their box is a replica of the original gaming machines.

The Official Tetris Silver Coin has just been released worldwide. If retro is your thing, I’d suggest snapping one up quickly.
