UNUSUAL 3-DIMENTIONAL SILVER PROOF COIN

Easter Island, a special territory of Chile, is a Polynesian island in the southeastern Pacific Ocean, at the southeastern point of the Polynesian triangle. Easter Island is famous for its monumental statues, called moai, created by the Rapanui people. Moai, the 'living faces' of deified ancestors, are monolithic human figures carved from rock on Easter Island between 1250 and 1500 AD. Almost all moai have overly large heads three-fifths the size of their bodies. The statues' production and transportation is considered a remarkable intellectual, creative, and physical feat. The tallest moai erected, called Paro, was almost 33 feet high and weighed 75 tons; the heaviest erected was a shorter but squatter moai, weighing 86 tons. As shown in these images, this Ten Dollar legal tender proof silver crown was minted in such a way that the gold-plated moai can be inserted vertically into a slot on the coin to create a three-dimensional view, a miniature version of the statues on Easter Island.
