The Sunshine Mint’s Awakening Mint’s Awakening Series rounds are very popular. These rounds have beautiful designs that make a pointed statement about society today. The 2022 War Horse 2 oz Silver Round definitely has something to say. This coin features an homage to the Trojan Horse made famous by Homer’s account of the Trojan War. The parallel here is that this image has a horse made up of materials from our time and the implication is that the results will be the same as they were during the Trojan War. This coin is made with .9999 fine silver.
- Made of 2 Troy oz of .9999 fine oz
- 5th Coin in the Awakening Series
- Limited mintage of 20000 coins available worldwide
- Obverse side has the image of a pyramid with the all-seeing eye at the top
- Reverse side has a modern day Trojan horse standing on a cellphone
The obverse side of this coin is the same on all the Awakening Series coins. There is a pyramid with the all-seeing eye that is commonly found on the US currency. The eye on this pyramid is much more pronounced. Under the eye are the Roman numerals for 1776. Under that, draped across the bottom of the pyramid is ‘ANNUIT COEPTIS’ which is Latin for ‘providence favors our undertaking’. Also written on the pyramid is ‘.9999 FINE SILVER 2 TROY OZ 2022’. Written across the top is ‘THE AWAKENING’. Across the bottom of the coin is ‘You can’t wake a person who is pretending to be asleep’.
On the reverse side is a Trojan horse made of all kinds of materials from our time period including wood and silicon chips. The horse is standing on top of a cell phone and in the background are 0’s and ‘1s’. The implication here being that we have constructed our own Trojan horse in the form of the cell phone. Like the Trojan horse, all kinds of trouble comes with a cell phone-the potential for hacking, companies and even governments tracking us, or even stealing our identity.
