a huge 2.5" coin with more than 400 fields. this is the new “sahasrara” geocoin ... in a way.
the front shows a geometric flower (made of circles), the back is kind of a look through a triangular kaleidoscope focussed on three interwoven triangles (an ancient symbol). including all mirrored images, there are 24 such 3-fold triangles.
the name “kaleidoscope” was suggested in a forum when only the flower side was ready. so the back was created after the naming.
the word “kaleidoscope“ derives from the greek kalos = “beautiful” plus eidos = “shape” plus skopeo = “to look at, to examine”: “observer of beautiful forms.”
there are more than 400 color-filled fields on this coin which made the manufacturing quite complicated and costly more than one manufacturing companies even refused the job for that reason.
front and back are covered with an epoxy layer (except for antique silver edition).
