Lovely detail on the reverse and the gilding works really well.

It does have high relief. I forgot to put that down. It came in this black box, here is the photo. It does not have HR like a 2oz.

The gilding is nice.  I find gilding on silver coins to be a bit hit and miss, and by and large I'm not much of a fan of coloured coins.  Germania, for example, has otherwise lovely designs, but I was never taken with their gilded coins.  Occasionally I see one like this where the gilding works well.
