In 2018, CIT Coin Invest issued the first piece of its series “Silver Charms” called “Silver Fortune”.
Since then, three products have been released: “Twinkling Star”, “Silver Heart” and “My Guardian Angel”. All of them are special shape coins and, thanks to sophisticated smartminting© technology, they are three dimensional. All obverses are decorated with different, carefully designed ornaments.
This series is not only popular among collectors but has also become a sought-after gift because every “Silver Charm” is a numismatic lucky charm that can be carried around in its owner’s pocket.
With “Gilded Fortune”, CIT takes its successful series to the next level: for the first time, the blank was gilded after minting. Meanwhile, the usually constant mintage of “Silver Charms” was reduced from 2,500 to 777.
That makes “Gilded Fortune” not only a lucky charm but also a collectors’ item coming directly from the market leader in terms of special shaped coins.
