The Industrial Revolution, which began more than 200 years ago, ushered in enormous changes to human society. Handcraft workers from rural communities moved to densely packed urban environments where they were employed for long hours in grimy factories dominated by noisy machinery.

Driven by the invention of new technology and adoption of new processes, the industrial revolution had dramatic effects on economics, politics and culture, shaping the world in which we now live.

The first coin's design represents developments in steam and depicts a number of significant inventions that contributed to the First Industrial Revolution including the early steam locomotive, the chimneys of Britain’s mills and early factories, a flywheel and other components symbolising elements of Boulton and Watt’s steam engine.

The second coin's design represents electricity, and depicts Thomas Edison’s incandescent lightbulb. The inventor himself is symbolised at Pearl Street Station in front of its electrical generating equipment. The design also incorporates spectacular electrical discharges from a Tesla coil invented in 1891.

Each gear-shaped coin is struck from 1oz of 99.99% pure silver with antiqued finish. The two-coin set is presented in an acrylic case with a mechanism to rotate the coins. The case sits within a themed shipper and is accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
