CARVED SKULL REVIEW - Skulls and Bones - 1 Oz Silver Coin - Cameroon 2017

For centuries, artists have been captivated by the human skull.
From Renaissance paintings to modern day tattoo art, images of the skull remind us that life is short and the time to live our dreams is now… and also to buy some coins!
It was an 18th century Tibetan human skull to inspire the realization of this incredible Silver coin: Carved Skull, from the “Carved Skulls and Bones” series.

What is a Carved Skull?

It is believed that Carved Skulls were realized to remove curses from a person and to guide its soul to the right path: these fascinating skulls are always covered with many Tibetan symbols and letters, some have been deciphered and some still remain a mystery.

The reverse of the coin is very impressive: it shows this beautiful profile of a copper plated carved skull that perfectly reproduces the Tibetan Skull, over a background with an amazingly detailed pattern that perfectly complements the skull.

It seems like the silver was been poured into a mold instead of being struck by a machine. I mean...Look at how High this Relief is!

On the bottom part of the reverse, the inscription: “CARVED SKULL” – the name of the coin.

The obverse of the coin features the Coat of Arms of Cameroon and the inscriptions: “REPUBLIQUE DU CAMEROUN” – the issuing country, “1000 FRANCS CFA” – the face value and “2017” – the year of issue.

This Coin has an antique finish quality and a limited mintage of only 666 pieces worldwide… and guess what? It’s COMPLETELY SOLD OUT AT MINT!
Meaning that you’ll only be able to find it at POWER COIN!
So, the next thing you’ll be doing right after this review is to get one before you’re too late!
