Eighth Wonder of the Modern World

The New Zealand protectorate of Niue commissioned the Mint of Poland to produce a 7-ounce .999 pure silver round coin. It features an early modern map of the world by Dutch cartographer Willem Janszoon Blaeu and on top lists the Seven Wonders of the Modern World and a features Swarovski crystal at each point on the globe one of those wonders is located. This is a limited edition run of these of just over 1000 so needless to say I will never own one. Image courtesy of Getty Images (all rights reserved).
