999 Silver Medals – coronation of a longstanding dream
After having created the first draft of his medal, we knew this project will be of great value for Mr. Kaufmann and his colleagues as the project represents a very special and important period in their lives.
Mr Kaufmann´s and his colleagues worked 23 years, from 1992 to 2015, to rebuild a Citroën Old-timer Roadster Cabriolet. The speciality of the Old-timer as well as the team work should have been celebrated in an extraordinary way and the medals from CoinsforAnything have been THE perfect solution.
The project does exactly show how detailed and accurate CoinsforAnything realizes these kind of requests.
It has been started 23 years ago…
23 medals for 23 people located all around the world, who helped to realise the reconstruction of an Old-timer with active support and very special spares. Now we see that the Citroen, Mr Kaufmann found 23 years ago as a wreck on a field, became a prestigious object.
On the coin reverse we used a special font, called “Castellar”, that looks similar to the fonts used among the Romans. But not only this is an allusion to the past. On the front of the coin the Latin wording REDIVIVA E RVINIS REFLORESCIS GLORIA can be seen. Which means “Risen from a ruin, blooms again the glory”. Therefore, the connection between new and old has been pointed out not only when seeing the car but as well on the medal itself.
