Third issue (now Smartminted for ultra relief!) in an unique series with a new technology dedicated to the great diamonds our world is rich. The Dresden Green Diamond is one of the most famous green with a great story. A replica inserted into a 2oz pure .999 silver coin.

The Dresden Green Diamond, also known as “Dresden Green”, is a 41 carats (8.2 g) natural green diamond, which probably originated in the Kollur mine in the state of Andhra Pradesh in India. The Dresden Green is a rare Type IIa, with a clarity of VS1 and it is said to be potentially internally flawless, if slightly recut. It is named after Dresden, the capital of Saxony, Germany where it has been on display for most of the last two centuries. Today, the diamond is shown in the “New Green Vault” at Dresden Castle.
