This substantial planchet was hand forged using .999 fine silver. The image was hand struck with impressions from the Ancient Greek coin of Syracuse, Sicily, Circa 317-310 B.C., BMC catalog #346. The dies were made by Peter Rosa in 1985, five years before he past away from cancer.
Each piece is unique and no two will look the same. I have one made at this time and future pieces will be made to order.
A limited number of these pieces can be made and this will depend on how long the die holds up.
Please allow two weeks to ship.
