For your safety: Keep the coin securely in its capsule at all times to ensure you don't risk losing the small ball, which could pose a choking hazard for young children. Mazes have appeared in ancient Greek texts as far back as the 5th century BC.
In fact, it appears in one of the best-known Greek myths, Theseus and The Minotaur , in which Theseus becomes a Greek hero by navigating this maze and defeating the creature. From there, the idea spread and the puzzle has since been widely used around the world, from the architecture of early Christian churches to the lavish gardens at the Palace of Versailles in France. What's the difference between a labyrinth and a maze? A labyrinth is said to have a single path that winds its way into the middle, which forces you to retrace your path to get back out; a maze has dead ends or many different paths and directions to choose from.
The first maze recorded in history was the Egyptian Labyrinth visited by the Greek writer Herodotus, but little remains of it today. Hedge mazes date back to Roman times and had spread to England by the 16th century. Unsearched All of the coins offered in this listing are unsearched. Many coin dealers search all coins when they are received from the Mint.
They "cherry-pick" the best coins. Then submit them to be graded, certified, and slabbed by PCGS, NGC, ANACS, etc. When a dealer searches coins, those that they sell in original Mint packaging are only lesser quality coins. Photos: When a listing offers multiples of the same coin, one coin is picked at random and photographed.
Since all coins offered in that listing are essentially identical, the coin photographed is representative of all coins offered. Surface areas that appear black on some proof coin photos are actually highly polished, mirror-bright metal reflecting the color of the camera. We often include proof coin photos with the coin slightly tilted to better depict the mirror bright surfaces. However, tilting the coin may result in one side being slightly out of focus. Please review all of the photos provided to obtain the best understanding of the coin's actual appearance.
Whenever possible, we use actual photos of our coins, rather than just stock artwork from the Mint. We frequently update and upgrade the photos that appear with our listings, using improved cameras and lenses and better lighting. We will honor your requests for additional photos as quickly as our schedule permits.
