Black Swan – Silver Proof
This 2 oz Black Swan Silver Proof captures the natural balance with the representation of opposites. On the front, the classic white swan parades its flattering plumage, whereas the back features a unique black swan. No doubt the rare sight of black swans is owed to the fact they are only very seldom found beyond Australia and New Zealand. The natural balance is wonderfully mirrored with this beautiful piece of art.
The European swan and its dazzling white plumage became an emblem of fidelity and innocence. This was the very reason why Peter Tchaikovsky created a fairy tale of true love and betrayal with his Swan Lake ballet, where both – faithful Odette and perfidious Odile – woo the prince as swans. With the movie Black Swan (2010), modern popular culture envisioned this moral antagonism in the form of two birds – a white and a black swan.
What both birds have in common is their regal elegance when gliding through water. CIT captures this aesthetic perfection with utmost technical craftsmanship: an Ultra High relief combined with delicate color application on different finishes makes this coin a work of art, which can be placed on any desk thanks to its flattened lower part.
