The gold sun disc was one of the most sacred and valuable artifacts of the Inca. Legend states that it came from the sky and was recovered from Lake Titicaca. It was three feet wide, made of rare translucent gold and was said to have magical powers. The Inca believed it could heal any injury, stop time, and prevent or even start earthquakes.
The Inca placed it inside their Temple of the Sun, in the Peruvian city of Cusco and used it to receive information directly from the Sun God, Tiki Viracocha, the Universal Mind at the center of the galaxy.
Coin Invest Trust has employed their enhanced smartminting® technology to create a stunning 1 ounce gilded silver version of the sun disc. The silk finish gives it an ancient look with a ultra high relief domed face on the reverse. The irregular design is faithfully captured on this piece and the coat of arms on the obverse is set into the inverted dome that helps give this piece its stunning relief.
