2021 Tears Of The Moon 2oz Silver Antiqued Coin

This stunning Incan themed coin features a dome insert containing silver particles surrounded by a representation of the Incan goddess, Mama Quilla.

Goddess of the Moon, Mama Quilla was an important deity for the people of the Inca Empire which flourished in the Andes region of South America from the 12 century AD until the Spanish conquest of the 1500s. In Inca, mythology, she was the daughter of Viracocha, the creator god, and wife and sister of the sun god Inti.

Revered for preventing the world falling into complete darkness, Mama Quilla was believed to shed silver tears that fell to earth and could be mined as precious metal.

This unique design potrays an artistic impression of Mama Quilla and her animal adversaries. The deity’s figure surrounds a Perspex dome containing silver particles suspended in purified mineral oil. Also included on the reverse is The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark.

The coin’s obverse depicts the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and a circular pattern of Inca crosses (chakana). Also included in the design are the coin’s weight, purity, monetary denomination and 2021 year-date.

The coin is housed in a varnished plastic case moulded in the shape of Mama Quilla’s face. Her lower lip opens like a drawer to display the coin enclosed inside. The case comes in a shipper featuring Inca-style patterns formed from dark blue brush-like flocking.
