+wenzelbub Posted February 25, 2011 Share Posted February 25, 2011 (edited) After several mails with mint I'm happy to show you a sneak peak of a new geocoin: Platons Atlantis Geocoin Probably you all have heard about Atlantis, a naval power sank after loosing a big fight against Athens. Atlantis sank into the ocean "in a single day and night of misfortune". In 360 BC, Platon first mentioned it in his dialogues „Timaeos“ und „Critias“, talking about the rise and fall of this huge empire. (To learn more about Atlantis just visit Wikipedia, very interesting!!) On front of this coin you can see Platon, in the back a excerpt from "Critias". Framed by a meander and Platons name written in ancient Greek under his head. Sunken Atlantis is shown on back how it maybe has looked like described in "Critias". Both, Platons head and Atlantis, are in 3D, and Atlantis is covered with transparent color to get a "underwater" look. Mint got a "GO" for 5 samples and I'm really excited they will look like. Samples are in hand end of March, pictures from mint maybe earlier. And many many thanks to my friend GATOULIS, who helped me a lot with the greek part of this coin! THANKS! THANKS! THANKS!
