The whole package contains one troy ounce of gold, but divided into ten identical coins. When you want to sell only part of your investment, you can break the package and sell it in pieces…

The Colosseum was built for the cruel entertainment of the Roman people. It is estimated that one million people and an equal number of animals perished in the place where gladiators and assorted convicts found death. But it was not just an arena of death, it was also an architectural marvel. The amphitheatre, whose ten-year construction began in 70 AD, was the largest in the history of the Roman Empire. Among other things, it was built using a revolutionary Roman invention - concrete reinforced with metal reinforcements. The 50-metre high structure had a circumference of 527 metres. The amphitheatre could be filled and emptied quickly thanks to its 80 public entrances. It could accommodate 50,000 spectators. To give them a good view, the individual floors were terraced, with four galleries reflecting the strict stratification of Roman society. The best seat right next to the arena was intended, of course, for the emperor, who also had his own entrance. He was followed by senators, aristocrats, citizens, the poor and finally slaves. Each individual place was numbered to find it easily. The arena itself was 83 metres long. There was an intricate underground beneath the wooden floor, which was covered with sand. This labyrinth hid not only gladiators and animals, but also ingenious mechanisms - lifts that transported the actors to the surface, or pulleys that controlled the breathtaking stage sets. Indeed, battles often took place among trees or buildings. When the Romans wanted to entertain themselves with a reenactment of a naval battle, the arena could be flooded. Only the ruins of the Colosseum remain today, however, it is still the greatest monument of Rome…

The reverse side of each coin, which is the work of the medal maker Ludmila Kracíková, DiS., presents the actual image of the Colosseum supplemented with the English inscription COLOSSEUM. On the obverse side, which is common to the entire series, there are all the new Seven Wonders of the World - the Brazilian statue of Christ the Saviour, the Jordanian rock city of Petra, the Mayan city of Chichén Itzá in Mexico, the Roman Colosseum, the Indian monument of the Taj Mahal, the Inca seat of Machu Picchu in Peru and the Great Wall of China. As the coins of the Czech Mint are issued with the foreign license of the island of Niue, their obverse side also bears its national emblem, the nominal value of 5 DOLLARS (NZD) and the year of issue 2023.

Ten identical coins are sealed in special packaging. This is perforated so that it can be conveniently divided into ten parts if necessary.

Note: The packaging is covered with foil to prevent damage during transport.
