How better to wish a beloved person good luck than with a four-leaf clover? For all those, who would rather revert to giving everlasting silver, Coin Invest Trust (CIT) initiated the “Ounce of Luck” series in 2011. While all previous issues featured a real, small four-leaf clover, in the year 2018 the coin itself has been transformed into a cloverleaf thanks to the latest smartminting technology, a cloverleaf whose design was only possible with the most complex minting technology.

Under maximum minting pressure a blank, produced specifically for this issue, is turned into a little artwork which combines two difficult-to-unite components: the incredibly high-relief, only made possible by smartminting technology, and the most delicate features of a lavish ornamental surface, which curves like a real cloverleaf. Only by holding this cloverleaf in your own hands can you fully appreciate the finesse of the artful minting technique applied here.
