With a height of 5642 m (18510 ft.) Mount Elbrus is the most elevated summit in the Caucasus mountain range and the highest mountain in Russia. But is the cone-shaped rock massif with its double peak also the highest in Europe?
This 6th edition of the Seven Summits series impresses with enhanced smartminting® technology and a refined colouring that shows the heavily glaciated, dormant volcano in all its beauty.
The detailed topographic relief, in 5oz silver, is a reminder of how ambitious the first ascent must have been in 1874. The ultra-high relief extends well above the surface of the coin.
This spectacularly depicted force of nature is worthy of a place alongside the other editions of this stunning series.
