The reverse of this two dollar coin features a super impressive scene of Ares – the Greek god of war – in full battle gear, leading his warriors into battle. He is holding a two-edged gold gilded sword in his right hand and a shield that features a gold gilded lion’s head in his left. All of this is minted in ultra high relief, leaving the impression that Ares and his warriors are about to step out of the coin. An ancient building is depicted to their right (or our left).

You’ve got to love those details, including the antique finish and gold gilded parts.

Inscriptions on the obverse of this 2 oz. silver coin include: “GODS” – in reference to the name of the series – and “ARES” – in refence to the Greek god of war himself.

Inscriptions on this side of this 2017 Niue coin include: “IRB” – the initials of Rank-Broadley, “NIUE ISLAND 2017” – the issuing authority and the year of issue, “ELIZABETH II” – in reference to Her Majesty, “TWO DOLLARS” – in refence to the denomination (NZD) and “Ag 999” – in reference to the purity of its silver content.

Greek God of War – Greek Mythology

Ares, as previously noted – the Greek god of war in Greek Mythology – is the son of Zeus (the sky and thunder god) and Hera (the goddess of women and marriage).

Ares Greek God of War

He is normally depicted as a god of great physical valor and brute strength – both qualities needed to be extremely destructive and successful in battle, especially during ancient times. The Greeks had at best mixed feelings about him. Firstly, Zeus referred to him as the most hateful god, secondly, he was on the losing side during the Trojan War – a highly important war in Greek mythology that took place against the city of Troy.

Being on the losing side of the Trojan War, might have contributed to his limited role in Greek mythology and humiliation in myths. However, reference is frequently made of his multiple love affairs and fruitful offspring – something most men will not frown upon. Interestingly, one of his lovers was the goddess of love, Aphrodite – spouse of the god of craftsmanship, Hephaestus.

Whether you love him or hate him, you’ve got to appreciate how he is depicted on the reverse of the Ares God of War Gods 2 Oz. Silver Coin 2$ Niue 2017 – one of the most impressive low mintage coins and legal tender silver coins seen in a long time.

First Coin New Solar System Series: 2017 Saturn Silver-Niobium Proof Coin

The Niobium Solar System series, a new coin series that will focus on the planets in our solar system, is set to turn a few heads. Here is an opportunity to learn more about the first release in this exciting new series and how to secure it for your collection.

2017 Saturn Silver-Niobium Proof Coin

Saturn Coin – First Coin Niobium Solar System Series

Collectors of space coins (planet coins) and low mintage coins in general are in for a royal treat. The first coin in the Niobium Solar System series was recently unveiled, the 2017 Palau Saturn Silver-Niobium Proof Coin.

This limited mintage, collector issue 2017 space coin will be issued under the authority of the Republic of Palau. It will feature the planet Saturn and how it fits into our solar system. The latter consists of an average star called the Sun and a number natural satellites and planets, including Saturn, the second largest in our solar system.

Obverse – Palau 2017 2$ Saturn Niobium – Solar System Silver Coin

The obverse of this 2017 Saturn coin features a depiction of the nine planets in our solar system (and their orbital rings), namely Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and the dwarf planet Pluto. It also features Neptune, the god of the sea and freshwater in Ancient Roman religion, alongside a mermaid on a shield under an outrigger canoe.

As a point of interest: The Republic of Palau does not make use of a national coat of arms, but only of the National Arms of Palau. This seal, derived from the Trust Territory of the Pacific Islands, features a traditional meeting center. It is not featured on this coin.

Inscriptions on the obverse of this 2017 silver-niobium coin include: “REPUBLIC OF PALAU 2017,” “2 DOLLARS” and “RAINBOW’S END.”

Reverse –  Saturn Niobium Solar System Silver Coin $2 Palau 2017

The planet Saturn is featured in yellow on the reverse of this 2017 planet coin along with its prominent, three-dimensional rings. The inner niobium ring, made up of 6.7 grams of niobium, was oxidized to obtain the yellow color. Astronomical related symbols, mathematical formulas and a satellite can also be found on the reverse of this proof coin. Inscriptions on the reverse of this 2017 niobium coin read: “SATURN” and “SOLAR SYSTEM.”

Saturn Niobium Solar System Silver Coin $2 Palau 2017 – Reverse

Niobium (Nb) – Inner Ring

The Palau 2017 2$ Saturn Niobium – Solar System silver coin is made up of precious metals – an inner ring of niobium (Nb) and an outer ring of silver (Ag). This leaves a rather impressive contrast of colors that certainly adds, not only to the value proposition this coin offers, but to its overall appeal.

Niobium (Nb) – Named after Niobe, the daughter of the mythical king Tantalus.

Silver needs no introduction here. The same cannot be said of niobium. The latter was discovered in 1801, but many collectors have probably never heard of it. It was named columbium by Charles Hatchett, the English chemist who first reported its discovery.

It was discovered that this new element, which is rarer than silver, has chemical and physical properties similar to that of tantalum. This contributed to the fact that another English chemist, William Hyde Wollaston, wrongly concluded in 1809 that columbium and tantalum were identical. The record was only set straight in 1846 when German chemist, Heinrich Rose, discovered that tantalum ores are made up of a second element, namely niobium. However, this did not clarify matters to the extent needed.

Clarification only came later, 1864-1865, when it was revealed in scientific findings that columbium and niobium were the same element. These two names were used interchangeably since then, but niobium was adopted as the official name in 1949. Regardless, the name columbium is reported to be still in use in metallurgy in the U.S.A.

Niobium is used in various applications today, most notably in applications in the aerospace industry, including its use in superalloys that from a critical component of rocket and jet engines. It is said that these super alloys contain a very small percentage of niobium, yet it enhances the strength of the alloy and adds temperature stability.

As a point of interest: Niobium has a melting point of 4491 °F (2477 °C) – more than 2.5 times that of silver (1763.2 °F/961.78 °C).

Saturn – Second Largest Planet

Saturn, named after the Roman god of agriculture, is a giant planet that consists mainly of helium and hydrogen. It is the second largest planet with an average radius of almost 10 times that of Earth. Saturn is so big in terms of volume, that if it was hollow, no less than 764 Earths would be able to fit inside of it. Despite this, it is said to be the only planet in our solar system that is less dense than water.

Saturn – Sixth planet from the Sun

Saturn has a noticeable ring system of which the rings, 3 discontinuous arcs and 9 main rings, are predominantly made up of ice and to a lesser extent rocky debris and dust. In addition, Saturn is orbited by no less than 62 moons, excluding hundreds of moonlets comprising the rings. Titan, the second largest in our solar system and the largest moon of Saturn, is bigger than the planet Mercury!

Saturn, the 6th planet from the Sun, is extremely cold with an average temperature of -228 °F (-178 °C). The is much colder that the coldest temperature that was ever recorded on Earth, namely −128.6 °F (−89.2 °C). It was directly recorded more than 33 years ago, at ground level at the Soviet Vostok Station in Antarctica on July 21, 1983.

Why purchase the 2017 Saturn Silver-Niobium Proof Coin?

Popular Collecting Theme: The collecting of coins based on a theme seem to be very popular when it comes to cosmic/space/planet/astronomical themed coins such as the 2017 Saturn Silver-Niobium Proof Coin.

Our Solar System

The discovery of new planets is expected to fuel demand for space coins even more. E.g. NASA has recently discovered a planetary system of no less than 7 Earth-size planets that are orbiting a single star – 235 trillion miles (378 trillion kilometers) or 40 light-years away!

Low Mintage: No more than 3000 of these 2017 space coins will be minted and distributed worldwide. This is a tiny number compared to the number of coins that were released in a similar series in Austria, the “Austria: Silver-Niobium 25 euro coin” series.

The first coin issued in that series, the 2003 25 euro: 700 Years City of Hall in Tyrol (see the image below), saw a total mintage of 50,000 coins. It sold out and has seen a more than 8 times increase in price since its release. Its original price was more or less €70 (or about $74). Today it is selling for $650 – $1000 per coin!

Given a tiny mintage of only 3000 coins, it will come as no surprise if the 2017 Saturn Silver-Niobium proof coin does better than the Austrian coin in the years to come.

Low mintage coins do not guarantee price increases. However, looking from a demand vs supply perspective, chances are better that such coins will see price increases, especially when the coins are part of a popular collector theme.

One Coin per Year: Starting with the Palau 2017 2$ Saturn Niobium – Solar System silver coin, only one coin will be issued per year in the Palau series. This is hugely positive. It will certainly help to make these coins accessible to a larger portion of the market. It should enable collectors to be able to keep up with the series.

Palau 2017 2$ Saturn Niobium – Solar System silver coin

Word is out that 8-9 coins will be issued in total in the series. It seems that the planet Pluto’s future status will play a role in the final number issued. In addition, this means that the entire mintage of coins in the new Palau Niobium Solar System series, will be less than half of each Austrian issue!  

Struck in Proof: Each coin in the Palau series will be struck in proof. This compares favorably to the mint state or BU only pieces that were issued in the Austrian series.

High Quality: The involvement of Coin Invest Trust (CIT) and the Mayer Mint will ensure the production of coins of high quality. CIT will serve as production supervisor while the Mayer Mint, one of the most reputable and oldest private mints in Germany, will mint or produce the coins.

Both are market leaders when it comes to innovative coin minting and high quality. It is small wonder that many countries, including the Republic of Palau, feel comfortable to outsource the production of coins to them. Expect this 2017 planet coin to be of exceptional high quality.

Palau Coin: The 2017 Saturn Silver-Niobium proof coin makes a great addition to any collection of Palau coins. Furthermore, it is legal tender of the Republic of Palau – a solid guarantee of each coin’s integrity in terms of consisting of the right quantity and combination of precious metals.

Niobium (Nb) and Silver (Ag) – Each of these 2017 Palau coins comes packed with 8.3 grams of 99.9% pure silver (outer ring) and 6.7 grams of 99.8% pure niobium (inner ring). This leaves a total weight of 15 grams and a diameter of 30 mm per coin.

This is slightly lighter (1.50 g lighter) and smaller (4 mm smaller) than coins issued in the Austria: Silver-Niobium 25 euro coin series. Nonetheless, the Palau series offers overall a solid – if not better – value proposition compared to coins in the Austrian series.

Niobium coins in general, especially the low mintage coins, are increasingly making inroads into the market. I don’t expect it to be different this time around.

Stylish Packaging: Each coin will ship in a capsule seated in a stylish, solar system themed red box and outer white sleeve – similar to packaging in the Austria: Silver-Niobium 25 euro coin series. A Certificate of Authenticity (CoA) will also be included.

Free International Shipping: Pre-order your 2017 Saturn coin from official distributor, First Coin Company (FCC), and you will enjoy free US and international shipping. FCC will also, where applicable, refund any tax or VAT incurred (as per their Terms & Conditions).

Code of the Future: First Release in New Series

The Mint of Poland is set to launch the first coin in a new series, namely the 2016 Code of the Future Artificial Intelligence 2 oz. High Relief Silver Coin – an uniquely designed high relief silver coin with more than one special future, including a glow in the dark feature made possible by the application of fluorescent ultra violet (UV) coloring.

Code of the Future: New Technologies, Visions and Ideas

This new series, Code of the Future, will focus on new technologies, visions and ideas, especially in terms of state of the art scientific advancements in fields such as robotics when it comes to artificial intelligence (AI), virtual reality and augmented reality.

The first coin in the series will focus on artificial intelligence, or in short AI – the intelligence shown by machines when it comes to performing tasks that require cognitive functions such as “learning” and “problem solving.”

2016 Code of the Future Artificial Intelligence $2 Glow in the Dark Coin: Reverse

The reverse of the low mintage masterpiece features what seems like a humanoid robot in color. It holds a colorized earth in its hand against a backdrop of endless computer code (see images above and below). The contrast between the colorized and non-colorized areas leaves a coin that is very easy on the eye, a coin with exceptional eye appeal.

Furthermore, a computer’s motherboard is superimposed on the humanoid’s head, neck and shoulder area – this computer design glows in the dark as a result of the UV coloring applied. The “glow in the dark” effect can best be observed by holding the coin under a light source for about 30 seconds and then exposing it to complete darkness. 

Artificial Intelligence AI Code of the Future 2 oz. Silver Coin 2$ Niue 2016: Obverse

The obverse of this coin features an effigy of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II, sculpted by famous British sculptor, Ian Rank-Broadley (IRB). The reduce-sized effigy can be seen on the lower part of the obverse to your left. It is depicted against a backdrop that includes a futuristic scene that seems to include an assembly line of humanoid robots and advanced means of air transport (see images below).

Inscriptions on this side of the coin include: “CODE OF THE FUTURE” (along with a string of code), “ELIZABETH II,” “NIUE 2016,” “2 DOLLARS” and the initials IRB –  in reference to Ian Rank-Broadley, the sculptor mentioned above.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) – Humanoid Robots and More

The ultimate aim of most AI-related robotics projects has not being achieved yet, namely the achievement of something that is termed: Full Artificial Intelligence (full AI). In essence, it is about the development of fully autonomous robots (robots with full AI). However, it seems to be only a matter of time before it will be achieved, especially considering the billions of dollars that are being invested in various AI-related projects around the globe.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) counts among the most exciting and interesting fields in robotics – and perhaps it should be added: controversial fields. It is one thing to build a robot that can work in an assembly line. It is an entirely different matter to build a human like robot that can act, learn and think like a human – a highly sophisticated and intelligent robot with AI.

Now it must be said that not all robots require AI. E.g. robotic vacuum cleaners are automatons (see image above). Automatons are robots that come with pre-programmed logic that enable it to clean while at the same time navigating obstacles. On the other hand, robots with semi to full AI are capable of “learning” for one (see the images below).

Companies such as Boston Dynamics and Hanson Robotics have made great progress, especially in terms of the development of humanoid robots – robots that in essence look, act, learn and think like humans.

Here are examples of a few that look extremely realistic and human like – such humanoid robots are called androids

According to Wikipedia a “…humanoid robot is a robot with its body shape built to resemble that of the human body. A humanoid design might be for functional purposes, such as interacting with human tools and environments, for experimental purposes, such as the study of bipedal locomotion, or for other purposes. In general, humanoid robots have a torso, a head, two arms, and two legs, though some forms of humanoid robots may model only part of the body, for example, from the waist up. Some humanoid robots also have heads designed to replicate human facial features such as eyes and mouths. Androids are humanoid robots built to aesthetically resemble humans.

Other humanoid robots look a lot less human, but is still classified as humanoid robots. Here are examples of a couple, including DRC-HUBO that won the DARPA Robotics Challenge (DRC) in California last year (2015):

Then of course there are other types of robots with limited to no AI that don’t resemble humans at all:

Is Artificial Intelligence (AI) really that important? Does it have a future at all? Is full AI even possible? Is it dangerous?

There are probably a 101 questions similar to the above that one could ask when it comes to AI, especially when it comes to the development of fully autonomous robots. We’re at this stage left with more questions than answers, but if we’re honest with ourselves, we have to admit that AI is already playing a major part in our lives today. Let me explain…

Business magnate, engineer and inventor – Elon Musk – is of the opinion that there is just a “one in billions” chance that the human race is not living in a computer simulation (see the video below):

Is life a video game? – Elon Musk – Code Conference 2016

His point of view certainly has merit, especially when one considers that a large part of our lives are being conducted in an artificial world – a world powered by artificial intelligence (AI) and extremely smart computers as depicted in The Matrix (see below).

https://youtu.be/V5YiuNL2A6M

We might easily get to a point – as computer simulations get better and better – where it will be extremely difficult, if not impossible, to differentiate between the real world and that which is merely a simulation. To demonstrate how easily the mind can be fooled…

Virtual Barber Shop (Audio – Use Headphones, Close Your Eyes)

The successful development of fully autonomous robots (full AI robots) in the months and years to come is certainly a possibility that we cannot disregard. More than one narrow AI or semi-autonomous robot have already been developed – mostly for peaceful purposes such as helping to find missing people, for educational purposes and such.

Or to re-phrase: Semi-autonomous robots have been and are being developed under the guise of only wanting to help out humanity. The reality though is that these robots can relatively easily be weaponized and turned into something that kill indiscriminately.

General Atomics MQ-1 Predator

General Atomics MQ-1 Predator

I mean, how long after the advent of drones did it take before they weaponized unmanned air vehicles (UAVs)? Before they started to kill people indiscriminately at weddings, while sitting thousand of miles away? This while UAVs were initially only used for peaceful purposes – mainly to observe. 

Elon Musk for one is of the opinion that certain types of AI could threaten our very existence, especially when powerful AI is concentrated in the hands of a few…

 

To give you an idea of what the world could look like if bad actors get to control powerful AI (or when fully autonomous robots simply take over and turn against us)…

Fallout 4 – Launch Trailer

Half Life 3 – Official Trailer

On the other hand, wide spread and powerful AI, not concentrated within the hands of a few, could serve humanity in a peaceful manner (or at least live in harmony with us)…

Wall-E Official Trailer

RoboCop Official Trailer

A.I. Artificial Intelligence – Official Trailer

Hanson Robotics, the creator of androids such as Jules pictured above, is one of the companies that wishes to see a world where man and machine will work together for a better future. This is why the robots they build are powered by friendly and emphatic, advanced AI software – software that helps to ensure that robots will remain friendly towards people. However, companies such as Boston Dynamics are developing robots for military applications as well. Needless to say, powerful AI of the wrong kind could be extremely dangerous in the wrong hands. 

The State of Artificial Intelligence

Why buy the 2016 Code of the Future Artificial Intelligence 2 oz. High Relief Silver Coin?

Reasons not to miss out on the opportunity to buy this impressive 2016 Niue silver coin include, but are not limited to (in no specific order):

First Coin in New Series

This is the first coin in the brand new Code of the Future series by the Mint of Poland. The first coin issued in a series normally tends to do better than other coins issued in a series, especially in instances where the market plays catch up later on to require a low mintage coin.

Antique Finish

The non-colorized areas on this coin comes in a hand applied antique finish, which makes each coin unique in its own right. 

High Relief

Parts of the coin come in high relief, which make certain elements really stand out. See the image below.

2016 Code of the Future Artificial Intelligence 2 oz. Silver Coin – High Relief

Design Work

As can be seen from the image above, a colorized humanoid robot with a computer’s motherboard superimposed on its head, neck and shoulder area is featured on the reverse of this coin. The robot is holding a colorized version of the earth in its hand. This makes for an absolute stunning coin, the best I’ve seen in terms of the subject in hand, namely artificial intelligence (AI). 

50 mm Diameter

The 50 mm diameter of this 2 oz. silver coin leaves ample space for the design to really stand out. This compares well to the 40.6 mm diameter of the American Silver Eagle (ASE) – America’s favorite silver bullion coin. 

Low Mintage – Only 500 Worldwide

The 2016 Niue AI Code of the Future coin will see a total worldwide mintage of only 500 coins. Low mintage alone doesn’t determine the likability of a coin in the marketplace. However, low mintage combined with great design, precious metals content and more can be a winning combination, especially when there is great demand for a coin. 

Silver Content

This solid silver coin comes packed with 2 oz. of .999 fine silver. This means that 99.9% of its 62.20 g weight comes packed with silver. Its silver content adds a protective value floor beyond the collector’s value of the coin. This certainly adds to the appeal of an already impressive coin. 

Glow in the Dark

The computer design on the reverse of this coin glows in the dark – fluorescent UV effect. For best results – place it under a light source for 30 seconds prior to holding it in the dark to see how it lights up.

Serial Number

Each coin comes with an unique serial number that can be seen on both the coin and its associated Certificate of Authenticity (CoA).

Presentation and Packaging

This 2 oz. Niue silver coin ships in a luxurious wooden box and a colorful shipper with individually numbered CoA. See images the below.
