2017 Sol. Islands $2 Kaiser Wilhelm Church Hologram 1oz Silver Proof
Built in the 1890’s, the Kaiser Wilhelm Church in Berlin was bombed during a WWII air raid in 1943. Following the end of the war, the decision was taken to forego repairs to the spire and let the damaged church stand as a reminder of the fearful toll of war.
This outstanding-yet-sombre WWII memorial is honoured on this 2017 silver coin depicting the current day, bombed out spire of the Kaiser Wilhelm Church. In a wonderful, innovative touch, the original building appears in hologram, offering a gentle reminder of what might have been if not for the war…
Housed in a timber case with certificate outlining the overall mintage of just 1,000 pieces.
