Each of the 2 999 fine Silver coins is struck in a new minting technique called “Bi-Metal Reverse”, which combines 1 oz of 999 fine silver as the base layer together with a top layer of 2.25 oz of copper. This results in a super ultra-high relief that is matched with an antiqued silver finishing after. This technique allows the coin to have an incredible weight and feel in the hand together with its size.
