Description

The item in the image is the item you will receive.


Most collectors would say that the first one ounce trade coin struck was the South African gold Krugerrand. Actually, 13 years earlier, in Morocco, the 500 Dirham coin was struck for Nathan Mayer Rothschild & Sons to use in the investment bank’s business transactions. The coin itself is an example of the mastery of numismatic art. The obverse features a full figure of Roman god Hercules leaning on a club with a robe folded over his left arm. Reminiscent of Michelangelo’s David, the coin commands respect with its gold heft and purity. Struck in one ounce of highly pure 91.67% fine gold, the coin’s reverse includes its gold weight and purity along with the N.M. Rothschild & Sons stamp. The survival estimate on these pieces is something less than 500 coins… It is considered a melt rarity.
