The 2018 Winter Olympics was held in Pyeonchang, South Korea. It was the first time that the Olympics was ever held in South Korea and they made quite a show out of it. Australia issued a crownsized $5.00 to honour their team being at and participating in those Winter Olympics. The coin is struck in Proof 999 fine Silver with a mintage of just 2,018 pieces. It has been selectively gold plated showing a skier and contains one ounce of pure silver. The coin comes in a handsome display case, with an outer box and numbered certificate from the Australian Royal Mint. With the next Olympics almost upon us, collector interest in previous Olympic issues will increase greatly. This is one Olympic coin that will be missing from most collections…
This delightful silver Proof 5 Dollars from Bermuda was issued in 2014. On the obverse
you have a portrait of The Queen. On the reverse you have her as a younger woman
inspecting the troops, with the legend ‘Promise to Dedication’.
We have never seen this silver proof Crown before and it is one that is rather beautiful and
interesting. Each coin comes in a capsule but we only have 15 examples for sale. Don’t miss out this is a rather beautiful coin and one that deserves to be in your collection.
