About this Product
 
Can you Hear the Song of the Sea? This Siren will Lure You to Expand Your Collection

The Pobjoy Mint's new Antique Finish 2oz Silver Mythological Creatures have been one of the hottest coin collections released in recent years! The combination of being incredibly detailed coins, 2oz of .999 pure silver, and extremely low mintages of just 650 each, made these coins true collecting monsters!

This new series began in 2018 with the iconic Siren coin, but there was one problem: this coin sold out before we could even get our hands on it! The follow-up coins in the series (The Minotaur - sold out, Hyrda - 2 available here, & Medusa - 3 available here) have only grown the public’s demand for these stunning silver creatures, and many of you have been asking us to find the coin that started it all!

After more than a year of searching, we finally built up a small handful of these incredibly rare 2018 Silver Sirens and are proud to be able to offer them to you, our collecting family!

The Siren’s Call Beckons...

The Siren is one of the most iconic and well-known mythological creatures in the entire world. From film to literature, the Siren has been a constant with its beautiful yet deadly song. The Sirens are said to be mermaid-like creatures that would lure sailors to their deaths using their inhumanly beautiful voices and music that entranced all men who heard them. These entranced men would then steer their boats directly into the rocks upon which the Sirens themselves sat.

The design of the coin itself depicts the beautiful Siren sitting atop a rocky outcrop while playing her harp. Around her on the rocks several skulls can be seen, a reminder of the sailors she has already lured to their doom. Off in the distance we can see her next victim’s ship approaching, already slaves to the melodic beauty that is the Siren’s Call.

The Original Silver Monster that Started it all!

These special 2oz silver Siren’s have what is called an "Antique" finish. Each piece is struck from 2oz of .999 pure silver and then as the last step in the production process they use a special Antique finish that deepens the design and truly brings the image to life! Once you combine this incredibly designed coin with its maximum allowed mintage of 650 it is easy to see why this coin was one of the most sought after coins of 2017!
