AUSTIN, Texas, April 30, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- U.S. Money Reserve is proud to be the exclusive U.S. distributor of a new, low mintage three-coin set from The Perth Mint created in honor of the 65th anniversary of the coronation of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
In a television broadcast to more than 300 million people around the world on June 2, 1953, the coronation of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II ushered in a renewed sense of hope after years of grim post-war austerity. Now, 65 years later, U.S. Money Reserve has partnered with The Perth Mint of Australia, a global leader in the precious metals industry, to commemorate that momentous day in world history.
The 65th Anniversary of the Coronation of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II 2018 Proof Coin Set includes a 2oz. gold proof coin, a 1/4oz. gold proof coin and a 1oz. silver proof coin. The coins are struck by The Perth Mint from 99.99% pure gold and 99.99% pure silver, and issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965.
The Perth Mint designated U.S. Money Reserve as the exclusive U.S. distributor of the 2oz. gold proof coin from the limited edition set. This privilege is made even more significant given the extremely low mintage of the 2oz. gold proof coin. From the total mintage of just 250 coins, 203 coins—and therefore 203 complete three-coin sets—are exclusively available in the U.S. only from U.S. Money Reserve.
"The Perth Mint is proud of its long-standing global alliance with U.S. Money Reserve," Richard Hayes, CEO of The Perth Mint, said. "Given U.S. Money Reserve's commitment to excellence in the American precious metals industry, we could not have a better partner in this endeavor."
U.S. Money Reserve has previously paid tribute to Britain's longest reigning monarch with several sold-out releases of coins from The Perth Mint, including the Queen Elizabeth II 90th Birthday Proof Coin Set in 2016 and the 70th Anniversary of the Royal Wedding 2oz. Platinum Coin in 2017. For both releases, U.S. Money Reserve served as the exclusive U.S. distributor. Most notably, U.S. Money Reserve is the worldwide exclusive distributor of the 75th Anniversary Pearl Harbor coin series, also produced by The Perth Mint.
"We are honored to continue the tradition of serving as the exclusive U.S. distributor of such iconic gold and silver coins from The Perth Mint," Angela Koch, CEO of U.S. Money Reserve, said. "This coin set perfectly combines the three key components of a successful coin release: low-mintage status, historical significance and exclusivity."
The reverse of each 65th Anniversary Coronation Coin displays St. Edward's Crown, a defining symbol of the British monarchy, atop a stylized shield. Images of the floral emblem of Australia — the golden wattle — as well as the official flower of each Australian state and territory complement the design which includes the inscriptions H.M. QUEEN ELIZABETH II CORONATION ANNIVERSARY, '65', the year-dates 1953 and 2018 and The Perth Mint's 'P' mintmark.
Wearing the very same crown made for the coronation of King Charles II in 1661, Queen Elizabeth II stunned television viewers with her coronation gown's intricate embroidery featuring the famous yellow wattle flower. The obverse features the Ian Rank-Broadley portrait of Her Majesty the Queen, along with the monetary denomination and the 2018 year-date.
Designated with the "First Strike" label from Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS), each set is certified in the highest grades available — museum-quality Proof 70 or near-flawless Proof 69 — and accompanied with an individually numbered certificate of authenticity.
