Silver Two Ounces 2005 Tiffany Art, Coin from Liberia
CoinSilver Two Ounces 2005 Tiffany Art

The Republic of Liberia has been issuing its own coinage denominated in Liberian Dollars since 1847. Apart from the circulating coinage, the country also allows some foreign mints to issue non-circulating commemorative coins under its authority. These are usually dedicated to historical or general popular culture themes not related to the country itself. Many of them are in standard bullion sizes, including the large two ounces (2oz) of silver format.

This coin is the second edition in the Tiffany Art series by CIT Coin Invest which includes a signature Tiffany glass window inlaid in each issue (the later editions were issued for Palau).

The mint says about it:
Louis Comfort Tiffany (1848-1933) is acknowledged to be the leading artist in Art Nouveau in the USA. Being fascinated with antique glassware colour appearance and style, he undertook intensive studies in glass manufacturing. He founded in 1879 the Tiffany Glass and Decoration Company and invented a special coloured glass, semi opaque and with metallic effects. This patented manufacturing process merges semi melted glass sheets with either a mix of silver chloride, or peroxide of tin, or bone ashes or other substances.

He was famous as a glass artist and well known for his unique creations; for example, combinations of unusual materials of glass, ceramic and bronze, lamp shades with geometric and floral designs, motive windows in Churches. His art work enjoyed a revival in 1961 as a result of the movie "Breakfast at Tiffany", the name of his jewellery store in New York.

Obverse
Liberia / Silver Two Ounces 2005 Tiffany Art - obverse photo

The obverse design displays the Coat of Arms of Liberia; it features a shield displaying a picture of a 19th century ship arriving home (Liberia) - a symbol of the freed slaves brought back home from the United States, who founded the country. On a ribbon below the shield is the name of the country, REPUBLIC OF LIBERIA, and above is a scroll with the national motto: THE LOVE OF LIBERTY BROUGHT US HERE. Within the shield are several elements, including: a plough and spade (representing dignity and labour), a rising sun (the birth of a nation), a palm tree (prosperity), and a white flying dove with an open scroll in its claws (for peace).

Around above, the name of the country, REPUBLIC OF LIBERIA. Below, the face value 10 DOLLARS.

The Coat of Arms and the inscription are small and are in the left part of the obverse.

The rest of the design depicts a stone wall, with a stained glass insert for an arched window.
