Oh man. I hate roller coasters. Why on earth would you want to fly, seemingly out of control, over a rickety system of loops and dips, at tremendous speed??? But, you know what? For more than 100 years, visitors have flocked to these daredevil rides at amusement parks across the world, ready to be scared, ready for the adrenaline dump that a serious roller coaster can provide. One of the earliest of these rides was the Loop the Loop at Coney Island in Brooklyn, New York.
Running briefly at the park from 1901 to 1910, the Loop the Loop changed up some of the earlier versions by changing its loop shape (thereby reducing whiplash! Good Lord...) and adding rubber tires to the cars.
Struck using Coin Invest Trust's smartminting technology, this one ounce, 99.9% silver coin recreates this famous early roller coaster with a clever double sided design of the loop itself.
