INSURED SHIPMENT / OWN COLLECTION

First coin from "The Gangsters" series.

This silver coin depicts Al Capone - one of the most famous figures from the world of gangsters. The coin is decorated in high relief and the images of the 9mm revolver cartridges have been gilded.

Al Capone (1899-1946) was the most famous American gangster. He was born in New York in 1899 to a family of Italian immigrants from Naples. He completed five grades, and was expelled from the sixth grade for violence towards his teacher. He gave her up after she slapped him. As a teenager he began hanging out with New York gangs, and during one fight his opponent cut his face in three places. Due to his criminal activities, he had to flee New York. He moved to Chicago, where he continued his career, climbing ever higher. In 1925 he became one of the most important gangsters in the city, steadily expanding his business during Prohibition.

At the same time, he tried to be seen as one of the leaders of the local community, and therefore he engaged in charitable actions, among others supporting the poorest people during the Great Depression. The authorities decided to go after him at all costs. He was sent to the notorious Alcatraz, where he was completely cut off from the outside world. At this time, his criminal empire began to crumble, mainly due to the abolition of Prohibition, and Capone's own position in the underworld fell dramatically. In January 1947, Al Capone first suffered a stroke, then pneumonia and died within days.
