With the design that has been thought out down to the smallest detail, Beni Debacker has once again excelled himself.
His motif was realized by the master medalists of the P. De Greef studio at the highest level and with attention to detail.
The cobra's head stands out three-dimensionally thanks to the coin's extremely high relief, while its wide-open mouth seems to look directly at the viewer.
The coin features an incredible overall height of 23.8 mm - that's higher than the diameter of a 1-euro coin!
Thanks to the excellent minting quality, even subtleties such as the scales of the snake are impressively shown to advantage.
A high-quality antique finish perfectly rounds off the coin image. The coin issue "Cobra" was minted from 1 kilo of pure silver.
After the great success of the Big Five Asia Tiger in 5 oz., we didn’t have to think long about issuing the same motif on a 1 kg coin.
The lifelike impression of the tiger is even more prominent on this silver giant. This is yet another handcrafted piece of art.
