A 1 oz. Silver Unlike Any Other:
the Colorized Harry Potter Hogwarts Crest!
This coin is something truly special – it is struck in the exact same shape as the famous Crest from the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry from the famous Harry Potter universe’s books and films!
The obverse design of the Crest-coin itself honors the 4 major houses (dorms) that young spellcasters would live in when they arrived as 1st-year students at Hogwarts – with each of the four houses colorized in their now iconic house-colors! The Crest Features an ornate ‘H’ for Hogwarts at its center with the animal-familiars of the ‘4 Houses’ surrounding it.
The Four Houses are: Gryffindor (Red Lion, Top Left), Slytherin (Green Serpent, Top Right), Hufflepuff (Yellow Badger, bottom left), and Ravenclaw (Blue Raven, bottom right). Beneath this stunning crest is the inscription of the School’s Motto: ‘Draco Dormiens Nunquam Titillandus’ which translates to ‘Never Tickle a Sleeping Dragon’!
The reverse of this coin features the Ian Rank-Broadley’s rendition of Queen Elizabeth II alongside the inscriptions ‘NIUE’ , ‘2021’ , ‘ELIZABETH II’ , ‘1 OZ .99 FINE SILVER’ and ‘TWO DOLLARS’.
This special piece will have a total mintage of just 5,000 coins, making it one of the rarest of the year!
Did you know? The Author of the Harry Potter films came up with the names for the four Hogwarts Houses while on an Airplane and wrote them down on an airline ‘Sick bag’! You truly never know where the magic of inspiration will strike you!
