Own an eerily enchanting symbol of Death...

Few creatures portray the fleeting nature of life like the Death’s Head Hawkmoth, with its graceful wings signifying the fragility of life and the skull branded on its back a stark reminder of looming death...

Seen by the superstitious as a bad omen and a symbol of evil, this haunting creature has now been portrayed on a brand new silver coin using the very latest minting techniques.

Enchanting black proof finish

The first thing you’ll notice about the coin is the shadowy black proof finish and the unusual shape of the coin, both achieved using expert minting processes that haven’t been around for long.

The shape, which gives the notion of an eerie Hawkmoth taking flight from the coin, bridges the gap between the traditional round coin and the modern shapes that are very popular today.

2oz of Pure Silver

The Death’s Head Hawkmoth coin is struck from 2oz of pure silver, allowing for an unexpected thickness that gives the Hawkmoth’s ordinarily fragile body a haunting intensity.

Never-before-seen minting technique

For the first time EVER, a brand new technique called ‘lapping’ has been used to create a bright, reflective surface on the wings which contrasts beautifully against the black proof finish – the glint as it catches the light will have you believing the Hawkmoth has come to life...
