2015 COOK ISLANDS 50 GRAM WINDOWS OF HEAVEN DOMINUS FLEVIT JERUSALEM SILVER PROOF COIN
The Windows of Heaven series is one of the most famous in the world. With a genuine stained glass insert, each issue depicts a famous window from holy sites around the world. The highly detailed glass insert combined with the high quality proof minting makes this coin very unique in the collector coin market. This release features the Dominus Flevit, a Roman Catholic Church on the Mount of Olives, opposite the walls of the Old City of Jerusalem.
Dominus Flevit was designed and constructed between 1953 and 1955 by the Italian architect Antonio Barluzzi and is held in trust by the Franciscan Custody of the Holy Land. During construction of the sanctuary, archaeologists uncovered artifacts dating back to the Canaanite period, as well as tombs from the Second Temple and Byzantine eras. Dominus Flevit, which translates from Latin as "The Lord Wept", was fashioned in the shape of a teardrop to symbolize the tears of Christ. Here, according to the 19th chapter of the Gospel of Luke, Jesus, while riding toward the city of Jerusalem, becomes overwhelmed by the beauty of the Second Temple and predicting its future destruction, and the diaspora of the Jewish people, weeps openly. (an event known as Flevit super illam in Latin language)
The site of Christ's weeping was unmarked until the Crusader era. It was during this time that people began commemorating the site. Eventually a small chapel was built there. After the fall of Jerusalem in 1187, the church fell into ruin. In the early sixteenth century a mosque or madrasah existed at the site, presumably built by the Turks, from the remains of the earlier church, although the exact use is disputed. This place was known as el Mansouriyeh (The Triumphant) and also el Khelweh (The Hermitage).
The Franciscans were unable to obtain the ruins, so, in 1891 they purchased a small plot of land nearby and built a small chapel there. In 1913 a small private home was built in front of the Franciscan chapel by one Miss Mellon.

JUPITER ROMAN GODS SERIES Mint of Poland - 2016 2 oz Ultra High Relief Pure Silver Coin Gem Uncirculated
Another fascinating coin to to gaze at from the Mint of Poland, one of the most important and advanced mints in the world. This coin is part of a small series called "Roman Gods" and they capped out mintage at 500 which makes this rare super rare on the world stange of coins. It is typical for the Mint of Poland to sell out the day of release; therefore, all of the examples seen for sale, are being traded on the secondary market, where collectors are quickly grabbing these up as the rare coin market starts to rev up. Other than the magnificent artististry and incredible detail that goes into the fine coins, they also come with a numbered (random) COA and the same mint number it struck on the plain edge of the coin. I own several coins from the Mint of Poland, what's more striking about this coin over others is the reverse. The antiqued diamond design makes The Queen looks so much better don't you think? Traditionally most of these coins have blank antiqued fields on the reverse.

2016-P S$1 Pearl Harbor Perth Mint 1 oz. .9999 Silver PCGS MS70 a Perfect Coin
This coin is graded a perfect MS70 by PCGS.
At 7:55 a.m. on Sunday, Dec. 7, 1941, the first of two waves of Japanese fighter aircraft began its devastating attack on the United State’s Pacific Fleet moored at the naval base of Pearl Harbor on the island of Oahu, Hawaii.
Japanese forces attacked without warning with the objective of crippling the Pacific Fleet, in order to prevent America from interfering with the planned Japanese military action in Southeast Asia.
The surprise attack catapulted the United States to declare war on Japan, signaling America’s entry into World War II. As President Franklin D. Roosevelt proclaimed to a stunned nation, it would be forever remembered as a “date which will live in infamy.”
The Perth Mint is honored to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the historic attack on Pearl Harbor with this limited edition, legal tender coin struck in 99.99% pure silver.
The reverse of the coin portrays three U.S. Navy ships and two Japanese Zero military fighter planes, as used by the Imperial Japanese Navy in the attack on Pearl Harbor. The design includes the inscription 75th ANNIVERSARY PEARL HARBOR MCMXLI and The Perth Mint’s “P” mintmark.
The coin’s obverse depicts Ian Rank-Broadley’s elegant profile of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the 2016 year of issue, and the monetary denomination.
