This round is the first round in Elemetal Mint’s Landmark series. Here they feature the Grand Canyon, one of the most visited geographical sites in the world. This natural wonder is over 277 miles in length, 18 miles wide, and up to one mile deep. This formation was created over millions of years and reveals layers of rock formed as far back as 1.8 billion years ago. The view is breathtaking. To put this on a round and have it resemble the Grand Canyon would require some ultra-high relief minting and this is what the Elemetal Mint has accomplished. They have managed to make a round that is breathtaking in its own right.
The obverse side of the round has a detailed relief map of the United States. Some might choose to go safe and just make a flat map of the United States but the Elemetal Mint decided to make this side of the round a relief map of the US so you can appreciate the mountain ranges. At the top is ‘AMERICAN LANDMARKS’. At the bottom is ‘2 OZ .999 FINE SILVER’.
On the reverse side is the image of the Grand Canyon in Ultra High Relief. They have managed to give the image depth using a combination of matte and shiny silver. At the bottom is ‘ The Grand Canyon’ written in script like you might see on a postcard.
This a gorgeous rendition of one of the most awe-inspiring natural landmarks in the world. It looks gorgeous in .999 fine silver.
