The pure gold coin was minted by the Lasqueti Mint, an artisanal mint on Canada's west coast with a connection to the Yukon gold rush - Canada’s historical ASM story. The Lasqueti Mint has been striking coins with artisan tools since 1997 and are widely respected by numismatists for their work. This coin is the first ever coin to have script overlaying a cartographic projection of the earth.
Coins from the limited edition mintage (there are only 2 left of the original 104 coins) are available for purchase, and come in a capsule delivered in a beautiful wooden display box. Coins are issued with a certificate explaining the mintage, coin number, the mission of the Artisanal Gold Fund, and are signed by the Executive Director of the Artisanal Gold Council, Dr. Kevin Telmer.
The coin commemorates the creation of the Artisanal Gold Fund - an improvement fund for artisanal gold miners in the developing world. The price is currently $1999 USD If you are interested in purchasing one of the 2 remaining coins, you may request a money transfer form which can be brought to your bank to make the coin payment by direct money transfer. Or you may pay via paypal. Request the coin first by emailing email@example.com.
