    I absolutely agree, but the series (or the be more precise the first coin) looks quite interesting, at least to me :)

    Thanks for sharing Slawek and welcome to the forum!

    I'm all for innovation in design but this doesn't cut it for me since it's not an innovation...just a different type of paint applied.

    I'd like to see the Mint of Poland focus on developing some ultra high relief coins of some universally appealing subjects without crystal embellishments....that would interest me.

    Why they don't make coins with blood/DNA of some extinct species, like yeti or T-rex from new Jurassic park movie? Even if the price won't rise they could help saving DNA for the future when cloning will be piece of cake.:p

    More about this cool coin:

    A new series is being launched by the Mint of Poland on behalf of Niue called "Code of the Future," which deals with cutting-edge scientific advancements of recent years and decades such as virtual reality, augmented reality, artificial intelligence, and robotics, among others.
    The first coin, which is expected to be released in July, is called "Artificial Intelligence" and sports a very unique design as well as a number of special features.
    The reverse design shows a human head superimposed with the inside of a computer, and a robotic arm that holds the earth in its grasp. The background is an endless series of computer code, i.e., 1's and 0's.
    The obverse of the coin has a reduced-sized effigy of Queen Elizabeth by Ian Rank-Broadley and a very futuristic design with more computer codes, including towers of code with a human head on top and various futuristic structures.
    The coin carries a $2 denomination, has a tiny mintage of 500 coins, an antique finish, and is made of two ounces of pure silver. It has a diameter of 50 millimeters and a weight of 62.2 grams.
    Of special interest is the application of fluorescent ultra violet (UV) coloring on the head on the reverse that makes the computer design glow in the dark. It is best to put the coin under a light source for 30 seconds and then place it in the dark to see it glow.
    The coin has its serial number on the coin and the certificate of authenticity and comes in a luxurious wooden box and a colorful shipper.

    Future coins in the series are expected to deal with topics such as personal robotics and virtual reality.
    This unusual and exciting piece is a fitting tribute to perhaps the most important field of study and knowledge of all time, one on which the future of the human race depends, according to Elon Musk, founder of Tesla and Space X, who believes that we actually already live in a world of artificial intelligence. In Musk's view there is only a one in a billion chance that we are not living in a computer simulation, and idea that many people may find hard to grasp.
    AI as it is called is commonly understood as the idea of creating computers that mimic the cognitive functions we associate with the human mind, such as learning and problem solving. AI has already been used to create computers that can beat professional chess players and self-driving cars.
    As was suggested back in 1968 in the film, 2001: A Space Odyssey, which featured a computer called Hal that took over the spaceship, the challenge of AI is to create machines that make our world better rather than going against humans and potentially destroying the world. At the same time, as Musk argues, unless we keep advancing, civilization will destroy itself.

    This coin seems to be about the Queen's collection of cyberheads.
