DALLAS, Texas, Sept. 14, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Elemetal Mint, a pioneer in the production of ultra-high-relief silver rounds, announced the release of its Buddy Holly: Not Fade Away coin, the very first of the company's new American Music Icons series. The coin is minted in Mr. Holly's home state of Texas and released in honor of the 80th anniversary of his birth.
This beautifully minted, ultra-high-relief round of fine silver has been meticulously crafted by Elemetal Mint's exceptional in-house design team. The two-troy-ounce coin features Buddy's signature thick-framed glasses with a replica of his autograph on the obverse side, and an image of Buddy in action on the reverse. Both sides feature samples of Holly's sheet music.
The Buddy Holly: Not Fade Away coin is licensed by BMG Rights Management, who in 2015 received the rights to Buddy Holly's unique image and legendary catalog from Holly's widow, María Elena Holly. In an immensely proud moment for everyone at Elemetal, María Elena was present to witness and assist in the first pressing of this memorable round.
This coin represents another success story in Elemetal Mint's industry-leading work and innovation in specialty minting. Elemetal Mint was the first mint to produce ultra-high-relief rounds in two-ounce silver, and the ensuing American Music Icon series follows the high standards of design and craftsmanship set by our wildly popular American Landmark Series and Privateer Series.
