New Collection Features The Legendary Tales!

Renowned for being one of the most familiar Arabian Nights tales, the Arabian folklore of Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves features on the first release in the stunning new Legendary Tales Coin Collection struck in 1oz pure silver.

Ali Baba was a poor woodcutter who lived in the forest with his wife and children. His brother, Cassim, married a wealthy woman and lived in the city. One day, while Ali Baba was working in the forest, a group of 40 men approached the area. Ali Baba climbed into a tree to escape detection, fearing correctly that they were thieves.

Ali Baba watched the thieves, who stopped in front of a cave. The captain of the thieves called "Open Sesame!" and the thieves disappeared into the cave. When they returned the captain called "Close Sesame!" and the cave closed behind them. Curious, Ali Baba climbed down from the tree after they left and discovered their treasure store hidden in the cave, only seen by calling the magic words. Ali Baba’s brother, Cassim, learned of the treasure and demanded to see it. Upon entering the cave he forgot the words to exit and was found and killed by the thieves. The thieves sought out Ali Baba for stealing their gold and hid in oil barrels while the captain posed as a oil merchant seeking shelter from Ali Baba for the night. A slave girl discovered the thieves hiding and poured boiling oil on them, killing them. As a reward, Ali Baba married the slave girl to his son and they all lived happily with the thieves' treasure.

This silver coin utilises engraving to depict the iconic scene in which Ali Baba overhears the forty thieves visiting the cave in which their treasure is kept. 

The Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves 1oz Silver Coin is limited to only 3,000 coins worldwide. Don’t let this one slip away.
