Why purchase this 2022 Magnum Opus silver proof like coin?

The Golden Ratio, which is also represented by the Greek letter Phi, has been a topic of study since the ancient Greek civilizations, and is closely associated with the Fibonacci number sequence. The geometry appears everywhere, from snail shells to financial market analysis, and is prominent in art, architecture and music.

Breathtaking Geometric Designs
Obverse: The obverse depicts Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II in a field of stylized pinwheels, beside a series of layered circles in descending sizes ornamented with varied patterns derived from the proportions of the Golden Ratio. Inscriptions include “ELIZABETH II,” “TOKELAU,” “2022” and “1 OZ FINE SILVER 9999.” The likeness of the monarch, which has appeared on coinage of the Commonwealth realms since 1998, is credited to award-winning British sculptor Ian Rank-Broadley.
Reverse: On the reverse, a sparkling Swarovski crystal is embedded at the center of a geometric image comprised of three rectangles, each adorned with a Golden Spiral. The segments generated by their intersections feature an array of patterns based on the Golden Ratio. The repeating pinwheel background graphic is inscribed “MAGNUM OPUS” along each long rectangular edge, with “5 DOLLARS” below.
