Since 2003, the Austrian Mint has been issuing coins with niobium cores, dedicated to topics related to science and research. The color of the coin is not applied, it is created by precisely controlled oxidation generating oxide layers a few nanometers thick on the surface. This technique is called “anodic oxidation”.

The 2024 silver niobium coin ingeniously illustrates the vibrant world of the soil. It is a world that forms the foundation of our existence and is the key to our planet’s future. So, let’s treat it with the respect it deserves – if the soil is doing well, we are doing well.

The obverse of Edaphon shows the five factors that contribute to the development of soil: time, mineral material, climate, soil organisms (in the niobium core) and the relief of the landscape (in the outer silver ring). In the center are the roots of a plant, its leaves protruding into the silver ring.

The coin’s reverse features a mole at the top, an earthworm on the left, a snail at the bottom and an ant on the right. The niobium core shows a leaf on top and three other important organisms below: a fungal mycelium on the left, a beetle on the right and an earthworm above it.

Comes in a case complete with a numbered certificate of authenticity and protective slipcase.
