Development of the Cardano platform began in 2015 with the help of Charles Hoskinson, one of the co-founders of Ethereum, one of the largest cryptocurrencies in the world. The program launched in 2017 and is named for an Italian man named Gerolamo Cardano, a mathematician, biologist, physicist, and chemist, among many other interests.
For the obverse design of Cardano Crypto Commemorative Rounds, the mint features the set of small circles that form the Cardano logo. The background field behind this design has some of the same circuit features that other designs in the Crypto Commemorative collection offer, though the field on these particular rounds is somewhat cleaner behind the circular logos.
In the reverse field of 1 oz Cardano Crypto Commemorative Rounds is the common Crypto Commemorative design element. This visual was first used in 2011 when MJB released the world’s first-ever cryptocurrency-themed round. While that release celebrated Bitcoin, this design has been used on countless releases in the decade since. Cardano is just the latest cryptocurrency platform to be celebrated within the Crypto Commemorative range of gold, silver, an copper rounds.
