CIT is well known for pushing the boundaries when it comes to producing novel coins that require new techniques of uncharted territory. The Big Skull introduced at ANA 2017 certainly fit that bill, but unforeseen production challenges delayed delivery for months.
Now the second iteration of the Big Skull presented in 2018 benefits from the lessons learned and is ready for delivery. Production technology was perfected to create an astounding huge Pirate Skull coin weighing a hefty half-kilo and displaying an unbelievably high relief.
With supersized silver skulls already in their second year, CIT now proudly brings three-dimensional strikes to gold coins with the introduction of the Pirate Skull – Blackbeard Edition. Struck from one ounce of fine gold, this elaborate strike commemorates the 300th anniversary of Edward Teach’s death and is thus limited to 300 pieces. Undoubtedly the golden Blackbeard Skull is the most sophisticated gold coin CIT has ever produced using BGM Big Gold Minting technology.
