Game on !

Competitive recreation in the form of games represents one of humanity ’ s oldest forms of social interaction . With roots that are hundreds , if not thousands of years old , many traditional games are still a source of family fun .
This unique 2oz silver piece with a meticulously antiqued surface pays tribute to games firmly ingrained in human culture – including dice , cards , chess and dominoes .
The coin ’ s centre features a 24-carat plated stainless steel insert representing noughts and crosses , also known as tic tac toe , a ‘ threein-a-row ’ challenge believed to have evolved from the ancient Roman game of terni lapilli ( three pebbles ).
