This silver coin may just be one of the most ornate pieces you will ever lay your eyes on. These coins are often referred to as the "Forbidden Coin of Tibet." Tibet was a forbidden land, believed to be a kingdom in the sky. The mythological Shangri-La, also known as the Land of Dreams, was believed to be here. Tibet is isolated from the rest of the world and is home of monks, who are led by Dalai Lamas. These coins are known as Ga-den Tangka and are known to be some of the most ornate and beautiful of all money! These coins were struck from 1880-1921. The obverse of the coins features a lotus flower surrounded by the eight symbols of Buddhisms: a golden fish, amphora of ambrosia, a vase, a conch shell, a lotus, an infinite knot, umbrella of sovereignty, a banner, and the wheel of law. The reverse features the Palace of Ga-den, the former residence of the Dalai Lamas. These coins won't last long, so don't miss out!
Each coin is certified by NGC and will come with a beautiful story card, describing the historical important of these stunning pieces.
