7 Wonders of the World: Lighthouse at Alexandria 1oz. Silver Round (TAX Exempt)

Journey to one of the 7 Wonders of The Ancient World with the third release in the 7 Wonders of the World Series. The 7 Wonders of the Ancient world are among the most famous landmarks in human history. The APMEXclusive series highlights each Wonder with a limited mintage release of Gold and Silver rounds, each displaying a landmark, effigy, and denomination.

The reverse of this 1oz Silver coin depicts the Lighthouse of Alexandria. This lighthouse overlooks the bay on the island of Pharos at Alexandria. The obverse features Ptolemy II Philadelphus, the pharaoh of Egypt during construction of the lighthouse. The face value of this round is a 1 Tetradrachm.

Lighthouse of Alexandria
Once considered the tallest man-made structure in the world standing at least 300 feet in height, the Lighthouse at Alexandria was built by the Greek Ptolemaic Kingdom of Ancient Egypt during the reign of Ptolemy II Philadelphus around 280 BC. Sometimes referred to as the Pharos of Alexandria, the lighthouse was constructed of stone and remained standing until three earthquakes between the years of 956 and 1323 AD tremendously damaged the structure, causing this ancient wonder to be abandoned before falling into complete ruin. This 1 oz Silver round features a detailed depiction of the lighthouse and the pharaoh during the time of its construction, Ptolemy II Philadelphus. In addition to the detailed lighthouse and pharaoh, the round also features the denomination of a Tetradrachm, a currency commonly used during the time when the lighthouse remained standing.
