This beautiful 2 Oz Silver coin is the second issue from the “Masks” series and is dedicated to the symbol of the “Black Death” plague – the Pestilence Mask.

Pestilence, black death - these are the names with which that plague has been described for hundred of years. Doctors wore black leather coats and characteristic masks in the shape of bird beaks as part of the -not very effective- protection. This mask became a symbol of the plague and today the doctor fighting this disease is called the Doctor Pestilence. This disease took a huge toll, in the 14th century it reduced the population of Europe by as much as 80%.
