In 1997 Pobjoy Mint struck a series of coins to commemorate the seven man-made constructions of classical antiquity, otherwise known as the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. Ten years later, to celebrate what constitutes the modern-day seven Wonders of the World, we released on behalf of the Isle of Man Government an exciting issue where some of the versions contain sand from the Great Pyramid of Giza!
The centre of the coin is graced by The Great Pyramid of Giza in Egypt which is the only one of the original Ancient Wonders still standing, and perhaps the greatest cultural feat of all time. What makes this coin even more striking is the layer of sand that covers the central image, which has been encapsulated under a thin plate of glass. This very sand was collected from the site of The Great Pyramid in Giza last September by Managing Director Taya Pobjoy. Two versions of this remarkably engineered coin are available. The first is a 2oz piece struck in 999. Proof Fine Silver and the second is a 1oz coin made from 999.9 Proof Fine Gold. The coin is also be available in Unc. Cupro Nickel although this version does not contain any sand. Approved by Buckingham Palace the obverse of the IOM coin carries a fine effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Ian Rank-Broadley FRBS FSNAD.
The Wonders of the Modern World depicted are;
