Numismatic Elegance for the Uncommon Collector
In 2006, the European principality of Andorra, in cooperation with DGT, manufacturer of some of the most widely used chess clocks in the world, and World Champion Vladimir Kramnik, minted a very special collection of Andorran coins. Each of the thirty-two pieces of the royal game is represented by a single Andorran coin.
There are 16 nickel coins and 16 gold-plated brass coins, each with a weight of 11 grams. These square coins are 25mm on a side, with milled edges and a bright uncirculated finish. Each coin has a value of one diner.
Only 5,000 sets were minted by the principality of Andorra. Each Kramnik’s Choice Special Limited Edition Coin Set is numbered and comes with its own Certificate of Authenticity. The coin set may be displayed flat or on an angle in its neatly felted tray, or shown on the black-and-gray two-piece board specially designed for this uncommon numismatic chess set.
