Aconcagua Aconcagua, with a summit elevation of 6,960.8 metres (22,837 ft), is the highest mountain in both the Southern and Western Hemispheres. It is located in the Andes mountain range, in the Mendoza Province, Argentina, and lies 112 kilometres (70 mi) northwest of its capital, the city of Mendoza, about five kilometres from San Juan Province and 15 kilometres from the international border with Chile. The mountain itself lies entirely within Argentina, immediately east of Argentina’s border with Chile. Mount Everest, Denali, Aconcagua the third of the seven summits features the highest mountain outside of the Himalayas. At 6,962 meters (22,841 feet), Aconcagua might be one of the lesser known seven summits but it certainly is one of the most spectacular ones. The Sentinel of Stone is arguably the most elaborate coin in the series yet with an unbelievably detailed, high-rising, topographical smartminting relief and a selective color application that clearly defines the different rock strata present in the Andes mountain range. The snow and ice capped summit is surrounded by hues of green and red that represent limestone, carbonates, cinder deposits, and rock of volcanic origin. Aconcagua was first climbed in 1897 by Matthias Zurbriggen. The hardships of this adventure can be vividly imagined when looking at the miniature mountain on this numismatic artwork. The obverse displays a profile of Queen Elizabeth II as well as the inscription of the queens name, country of issue, and face value. The reverse features the peaks of Aconcagua in very high relief topographic detail from a bird’s eye perspective. Collected when you pick the item up.
