Why add this Intaglio Mint 2022 Bellerophon, Pegasus and The Chimera 2 oz. silver brilliant uncirculated round to your collection?
This gorgeous silver bullion round issued by the Intaglio Mint is inspired by the legend of Bellerophon in Greek mythology. Bellerophon captured the winged steed Pegasus with the use of the goddess Athena’s bridle, then proceeded to slay the Chimera. The Chimera was a feared fantastical creature comprised of the parts of a lion, a goat and a serpent, with the capability of breathing fire. The warrior defeated the creature with a block of lead delivered by spear to its throat. The Chimera melted the lead with its own flaming breath and perished by suffocation.
- This 2022 Bellerophon, Pegasus and The Chimera round contains 2 Troy oz. of .999 fine silver.
- The imagery of the 39 mm diameter round is enhanced by a dramatic high relief strike.
- The non-denominated round was struck at the Intaglio Mint’s facility located in Sedalia, Colorado and is not legal tender.
- The round is minted with a sensational Brilliant Uncirculated finish.
