“Nizaris”, Assassins” series, 5 dollars, 2 oz, 45 mm, issuer: Niue Island 2019, high relief coin, selective gilding, client: Mint of Gdansk, producer: Mint of Poland.


I started working on this project in 2018 and the coin was originally going to have an amber insert. Finally, the design was finished in 2019 and the coin was refined with selective gilding. Great topic and finally something different from Roman or Greek gods!

On the reverse on the second plan we see the Alamut castle (my own hypothetical reconstruction of the fortress). On the rim the inscription “Nizaris ” in Arabic.
