At 2 1/2 years into buying coins (mostly modern) and reading about all sorts of coins from ancients to the most currently released by the major mints of the world in my CoinWorld's magazine subscription and in forums like this, CoinForum, where I learn a lot from other members, I still consider myself a newbie.

I keep my eyes open all the time for new, exciting precious metals coins that I may want to add to my small modern coin collection. I was excited for the release earlier this year of the curved  Baseball coin.

I'm interested in your opinion on the following very unusual collector coin.

Recently I came across one that I really like a lot and I think some of you will too. I love well designed, innovative, and well crafted coins produced by a top mint. I love high relief coins. I love silver. I love coins that are very low mintage and are first in an exciting new series. This brand new silver coin hits all my sweet spots. Links are below. It's minted by one of the finest mints in the world, the Mint of Poland. There's even a video which shows the actual coin...it rocks, literally, because it actually contains a real piece of volcanic rock (cooled and solidified lava)!

This stunning, domed coin is called Volcano Erta Ale. It's a 50mm, 99.9 fine silver coin that could be a contender in 2015 for some coin awards at Krause.

Here's the description page from a USA coin dealer I trust (I can attest because I have bought a few coins from First Coin Co):

Here's the video...ENJOY!: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-lZD5Ze … e=youtu.be

I contacted First Coin just recently and asked them if they have a picture of the actual coin - here's what they sent me:
