About This Item
I drilled a hole in the coin so I could connect a tag with descriptions to it.
Front of coin:
The theme of the San Marco clock tower is the face of the front.
This clock is probably the 2nd most famous clock tower in the world after Big Ben in London, was built between 1496 and 1506. The main clock face consists of a number of concentric dials. The outermost displays the numbers 1 to 24 in Roman numerals and has a hand decorated with an image of the sun pointing to the hour. A second dial shows the 12 signs of the zodiac. These are illuminated in gold on an enamel blue background. The center most rings show the sun and moon phases
The coins is minted from solid brass in a two tone finish. The antique base finish used shows the intricate detail of the coin with contrasting polished plating of the Zodiac images. The front of the the coin has glowing stars showing the constellations as seen from the immediate area of the North Star Polaris.
The back of the coin
shows both the time keeping section used on the front side extending in a sun ray pattern of individual compass roses. Each of the small compass roses on the outer ring indicating the multiple directions one can go after finding the first position, almost like finding a multi geocache. The small image in the very center of the backside is a geographical location
