    The idea

    Ms Laimutė Varkalaitė, the illustrator of the project, researched and visualized mythological creatures – the cryptids – of each country to show their variety and uniqueness. The Lithuanian Mint transferred the characteristic graphic illustrations onto limited edition collectible silver coins.

    The collection book

    The assembled collection serves both as a exclusively designed world map and as a neat place to keep your valuable collectibles with dedicated spaces for the 12 coins. With intricate designs and mesmerizing detailing, each piece of the ‘World of Cryptids’ shines with its own captivating charm. Discover it now!
