Lurking deep in the farthest reaches of the worlds oceans are creatures that most people have never seen with their own eyes, or even seen in pictures. Even scarier, humanity continues to discover creatures in the depths of the worlds oceans that were previously unknown to mankind. Among those beasts rumored to haunt the depths is the Kraken. Provident Metals currently offers 1 oz Silver Kraken Rounds for you to purchase online with a gold-plated finish.
When you purchase the 1 oz Silver Kraken Round available in this listing, you will receive your silver round inside of an individual protective plastic capsule. Each one of these specimens is a proof-like item with frosted design elements overlaying mirrored background fields. With the added gold-plated finish on select design elements, there is even greater visual contrast in the finished product.
A kraken is depicted on the obverse of the 1 oz Silver Kraken Round as it attacks a ship. The Vikings were the first to record supposed encounters with a cephalopod-like creature in travels between Scandinavia and Iceland in the North Atlantic Ocean. In this design, a Viking longship has run afoul of a Kraken on its travels. The beast has emerged from the depths with more tentacles than these sailors could ever hope to fight off. It has lifted the longship out of the water and snapped its hull in half. Some of the frightened sailors have leaped on purpose, or fallen by accident, from the boat down to the icy waters below. The gold-plated finish to these rounds is featured on this side and helps to create an instant visual contrast between the design elements and the background field.
For the reverse design, you will find the Anonymous Mint logo on the 1 oz Silver Kraken Round. The Anonymous Mint logo features an owl in front-facing relief that wears the Anonymous Mint crown with AM initials on it. The owl’s talons clutch three arrows. There are three lines of stars above its head that offer, in descending order, 6 stars, 4 stars, and 3 stars for a total of 13. 1 Ounce .999 Fine Silver is inscribed on this side along with Anonymous Mint at the bottom of the field with beads on either side.
On his return from Greenland around 1250 CE, an anonymous author of the natural history work Konungs skuggsja described in great detail the physical appearance of feeding habits of the Kraken. It was believed by the Norse people that only two Krakens existed in the world as sightings at that time were limited to the North Atlantic.
