Rarely does a coin feature a royal effigy on both sides, but every coin in this magnificent series does. Each portrait has the raised edges normally seen on a sculpted military medal. Its ultra-high relief has been achieved by striking the coin an impressive four times followed by extensive refining and polishing—an intense hand-crafted process that produces a unique finish for each coin.
