11.2.14, R-Evolution – new coin by Austrian Mint

The Austrian Mint has now made its Silver Niobium series richer by introducing the new EVOLUTION coin. It was issued on 22nd January 2014 and shows the story of the development of Homo sapiens from other species. The novice in coin design is the use of two shades of niobium making the coin blue and green. (The designer Mag. Helmut Andexlingerist also designed the 2-euro-coin 2012.) The coin is minted to a maximum of 65.000 pieces and can be ordered directly from the Austrian Mint AG:
