Nidhoggr 1 oz Silver Antique Round

A beautiful, yet frightful, obverse features Níðhöggr, the “malice striker” of Norse mythos. This dragon plagues the Yggdrasil, the World Tree. Níðhöggr resides in the roots of the tree, continually causing damage to the home of the Nine Worlds. Scales and spikes cover the creature, creating quite the menacing appearance.

The legendary Yggdrasil is featured on the reverse, growing from the Well of Urd. The wealth of legends surrounding the great ash tree make it the perfect theme to feature on the commonly shared reverse for the Norse Creatures series. The alphabet of runes was said to have been carved on the trunk of Yggdrasil for Odin to find and deliver to the inhabitants of the Nine Worlds. According to the mythos, the World Tree is continually experiencing trauma. Níðhöggr attacks the roots, while 4 stags nibble the branches and mold rots the trunk. The reverse captures a stag, along with a serpent and a raven, drawn to the tree.

Each round is edge numbered and ships in an air tite capsule, placed inside a velour lined coin box for protection.

Mintage is limited to 2,000, so do not delay! Add the first release in the Norse Creatures series, Níðhöggr, to your silver bullion collection today. Order online, or call 800-313-3315.

Coins that Never Were, Morgan and Barber’s Missing Masterpieces!

Morgan and Barber

These coins were almost lost forever!

See Charles E. Barber & George T. Morgan’s missing masterpieces!

2016-Struck Proof Silver Barber Designed 1906 Double Eagle Pattern

Charles A. Barber is a famous coin designer and US Mint Chief Engraver, known for creating one of the United States’ most renown coin series: the aptly named Barber Dimes, Quarters, and Half Dollars.

When President Theodore Roosevelt tasked Augustus Saint-Gaudens to create a new $20 Gold Double Eagle design, Barber – the US Mint Chief Engraver at the time – decided to throw his design into the ring. This 1906 Gold Double Eagle Design was not approved and fell into obscurity in the U.S. Mint archives.

ModernCoinMart (MCM) was able to recover Barber’s original sketches and were even able to see the single-surviving pattern stored at the Smithsonian! Using this, MCM commissioned a commemorative proof using Barber’s intended design. These Proofs have been certified by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) and are now available to honor this once lost design!

2016-Struck Proof Silver Morgan Designed 1876 $100 Union

George T. Morgan, a protégé of Barber, is considered by some to be the greatest coin designer in American history. His exceptionally beautiful and intricate designs grace many US coins and medals.

In the summer of 2006, some of his missing original coin sketches were also rediscovered. Among these was found something special – the design for a $100 5 oz. gold coin. MCM has recreated this stunning design onto a special 1 oz. silver commemorative proof! It has been certified by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) and is now available for admirers of the great work of George T. Morgan and for those curious to see the proposed 1876 $100 Union coin that was once lost!

2016 Winged Liberty High Relief Silver Proof – Saint-Gaudens’ Original Winged Liberty Design!

2016 Winged Liberty High Relief Silver Proof

Extremely limited: Mercanti signed 2016 Saint-Gaudens Winged Liberty Silver Proofs

Hand-signed by John Mercanti!

In January of 1905, when Teddy Roosevelt told Augustus Saint-Gaudens that he wanted the famous sculptor to redesign all of America’s coins, the eminent artist knew that he could not decline the commission. As America’s foremost sculptor of the time, Saint-Gaudens was the magnet: his work gave off an aura of warmth and creativity that drew people to him – something that’s still happening today! But there’s a nearly forgotten “secret” that many visitors to the Saint-Gaudens museum are unaware of: Lady Liberty was supposed to have a feathered headdress and wings!

Images of winged female figures appear in many of Augustus Saint-Gaudens’ sculptures, drawings and monuments. In fact, just two years before he began the design of a Winged Liberty coin, he had unveiled a nearly identical winged figure leading General Sherman in a major gilded bronze monument in New York City – a monument which remains a Manhattan landmark to this very day.

Ultimately, the feathered headdress and wings would be removed from Saint-Gaudens’ design at the insistence of mint officials, who believed these details to be too intricate for the minting technology of the day. Recently, while exploring the archives within the Saint-Gaudens National Historic Site, we uncovered for ourselves the whole story of the Winged Liberty. Inspired, we immediately began partnering with museum officials to see Augustus Saint-Gaudens’ and Teddy Roosevelt’s original artistic vision brought to full glory in silver!
