DUNE® House Atreides 1oz. .999 Silver Round (TAX Exempt)
The spice must flow.
APMEX has partnered with Legendary Entertainment to create this exclusive release of Silver rounds and a unique Spice set. This collection marks the release of the highly-anticipated motion picture DUNE®.
The reverse of this 1oz Silver coin illustrates the red hawk of House Atreides, symbolic of their noble spirit and virtue. 'HOUSE ATREIDES' is written above the red hawk, with a circle surrounding the two elements. The obverse features the DUNE® logo with weight and purity along the rim.
House Atreides is one of the Great Houses in the DUNE® universe. The beloved house is the hero of the saga, with notable members including Paul Atreides, Duke Leto Atreides, and Lady Jessica. The House is known for its noble ways and compassion for its subjects and allies.
The symbol of House Atreides is a red hawk, but is famously never described in detail in any original novels. This has left the symbol open for interpretation over the course of the book series and film adaptations. The symbol commissioned and seen in the highly-anticipated adaptation features the hawk in a beautiful angular, military-esque presentation.
Originally conceived by famed novelist Frank Herbert in 1965, DUNE® takes place on Arrakis, a desloate planet covered in sand. Most people on the planet struggle to get by, but their planet is also home to the most valuable resource in the Known Universe: Spice Melange. This mysterious substance is mined and sold for large sums of money across the galaxy and enhances mental and physical ability, making it highly desired.. The story explores the planet's future as the Great Houses fight for who controls it.
DUNE® is a hotly-anticipated major motion picture set for release in October 2021. APMEX has partnered with Legendary Entertainment to bring the iconic characters, themes and landscapes to life with a limited mintage Spice set, struck Silver rounds, and colorized Silver rounds in TEP packaging.
