2012 London Olympics Kilo Silver NGC PF69
The First Ever British Silver Kilo!
Holding a legal-tender U.K. Silver Kilogram coin has been a collectors' dream for years. But making it a reality required a truly Olympian effort! Because of an old British law on the books which limited the weight of U.K. coinage, it took literally three years of work to legally authorize this massive Silver Kilo. It also required a bill to pass from the House of Commons to the House of Lords and to Parliament. Finally, it had to receive Royal Assent from Queen Elizabeth II herself. You can see why lucky owners of massive Silver Kilo Proofs are actually part of British history! These historic coins were struck to a massive 100 mm diameter and contain 1005 grams of 99.9% fine silver. The obverse features Queen Elizabeth II's effigy as well as the denomination of 500 British Pounds. The reverse design depicts a ring of flags that also pay homage to the Olympic Flame. They encircle the legend XXX Olympiad. The entire design is surrounded by the wonderful poetic phrase: Unite our Dreams to Make the World a Team of Teams. Each Silver Kilo Proof has been certified and graded as a Proof-69 (PF69) by Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC), and then encapsulated and sonically sealed in an impressive acrylic holder with a special London 2012 label. The presentation is completed with a prestigious Royal Mint display case and official certificate of authenticity. Only 2,012 of these Silver Kilos were minted, and our supply of certified Proof-69 coins is disappearing into history as we speak. Don’t miss out!
