One of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, the Colossus of Rhodes (33-meter statue of the sun god Helios), was constructed to celebrate the successful defense of Rhodes city against an attack by Demetrius I of Macedon, who had laid siege to it for a year.
Still today, the Seven Wonders of the Ancient world are respected and admired by young and old alike. This new series on the Seven Wonders of the Ancient world by APMEXclusive includes a limited mintage release of gold and silver rounds, each displaying a landmark, effigy and denomination.
This one-ounce .999 fine silver round has a depiction of the statue on one side with an effigy of Ptolemy I with a Greek pattern around the perimeter of the other side. The edge of the round lists its silver specifications.
