The Christopher Columbus 2 oz Fine Silver Coin marks the second release in the new Journeys of Discovery Coin Collection by New Zealand Mint. This exciting collection celebrates exploration and discovery of the unknown.
This antique-finished, fully engraved and high-relief engraved coin depicts the exhilarating moment Christopher Columbus first lands on a beach in the New World in 1492. The packaging of a protective draw string sack has been designed to model the transport materials to trade around the globe at that time.

Reverse: Features an image of Christopher Columbus making his first landing on a coast in the New World back in 1942, this coin is fully engraved and produced in antique finish.
