Let’s talk about metal, real “Heavy Metal”. This coin is dedicated to Iron Maiden who are considered one of the most influential and successful heavy metal bands in history with over 100 million albums sold worldwide.
This eerie, vampiric-looking silver coin celebrates the 30th anniversary of the album Fear of the Dark. Iron Maiden released the album in May 1992 after which it soon reached the top of the UK album charts. It was the last to feature Bruce Dickinson as the group’s lead vocalist until his return in 1999. The album cover depicts their mascot Eddie as a kind of Nosferatu tree figure leering down from under the glistening moon with vibrant glow in the dark pigmentation.
This 1 ounce, 99.9% pure silver coin features the original album cover in exquisite detail and precision digital printing. The Obsidian Black background matches perfectly with the strong and impressive artwork from its colored illustrations.
There will be a mintage of only 1,992 pieces to commemorate the release year of the album.
