If you collect the symbols of freedom and success, this South American coin struck in 90% silver is calling your name. The obverse depicts a seated Liberty holding a sun shield in her right hand and a pole with the cap of freedom in her left. Atop the plinth is the wreath of success. Equally rich in detail is the obverse featuring Peru's coat of arms. The shield's design includes coins pouring out of a horn of plenty, a vicuna (type of llama) and a native flowering tree. It is topped by the Holm oak civic crown, representing victory and glory. The shield is flanked by a palm branch (left) for triumph and a laurel (right) for victory. Order now!
