Ultimate Gold Coin Collection to Celebrate the London 2012 Olympic Games: 'Stronger'; The Final Set Now Available

The Gold Series: 'Stronger' Three-Coin Set is part of the premium collection in the London 2012 Coin program. They are the most prestigious coins to commemorate the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games because of their superior gold quality, classical themes and outstanding craftsmanship. They are also the only coins in the range to bear the official Olympic Rings. This magnificent set comprises a £100 one-ounce gold coin and two £25 gold coins of a quarter-ounce each. Inspiration comes from the Olympic motto 'Citius, Altius, Fortius' Latin for Faster, Higher, Stronger, and each features a sport and a Roman God. Designed by renowned sculptor John Bergdahl, the £100 gold coin features Boxing and the powerful Roman god Mars. One of the £25 gold coins features Javelin and Minerva, one of the great Roman divinities. The other depicts the sport of Hammer Throw and Vulcan, the ancient Roman God of Fire. The reverse of all three coins shows the classic portrait of HM The Queen by Ian Rank-Broadley FRBS. Each coin in this set grades Proof-70 (PF70) by Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC).

Year of Issue 2012
Country Great Britain
Composition Gold
Condition
Graded
Coins that are inspected, evaluated and graded by an independent, third party grading service. After a grade is assigned, each coin is sonically sealed in an acrylic "slab," preserving the coin's condition.
Uncirculated
A state of preservation used to describe coins that never circulated in the channels of commerce, i.e. a coin without any wear from circulation.
Proof
A specially made coin distinguished by sharpness of detail and usually with a mirror-like surface. Proof refers to the method of manufacture and is not a condition. Proof coins are struck on specially-made planchets using polished dies. Proof coins are minted primarily for collectors and are not released for general circulation.
Grade
PF70
This is the highest grade a proof can achieve, based off the internationally accepted 70-point Sheldon grading scale. A distinction of Proof-70, otherwise known as PF70, means your perfectly-graded proof has no post-production imperfections at 5x magnification, displaying all features and fields exactly as the engraver and mint intended.
Mint Name
The Royal Mint
Britain’s Royal Mint started striking coins 1,100 years ago. By 1279, it moved to the Tower of London where it remained for 500 years. In the early 19th century, The Royal Mint began striking one of the most famous coins in history: the Gold Sovereign, featuring St. George slaying the dragon. Now based in Llantrisant, South Wales, the Royal Mint produces all of the United Kingdom's official circulating coinage and commemorative issues, in addition to fulfilling the minting needs of dozens of countries.
