Actual-size hologram of a 1975 gold Krugerran coin, approximately 1 1/2" in diameter; only the front of the coin has been captured; when one holds the hologram upside down, the mirror-image of the front of the coin can be seen.
Please note that due to the unique challenges of holography as a medium, high-resolution digital images are not available for most items in the holography collection. Please contact us for more information on reproducing images of holograms.
