A First Coin for the Cure … in Dazzling Pink Gold!


Out of great strife comes great beauty. A coin in pink – specially designed for this one-year only, 2018 Breast Cancer Awareness commemorative series – heralds a worthy cause.  Each year, thousands are diagnosed with breast cancer. Now's your chance to promote awareness with a beautiful coin available right here at GovMint.com!


A great idea came up when legislation was trying to pass a law for the U.S. Mint to strike this special commemorative coin. Why not strike a coin in the color tied to the cause? Thus, this gold coin in pink was born! It also makes a thoughtful gift to anyone touched by breast cancer, survivors and supporters of the cure!


FIRST PINK GOLD COIN – For the first time in the U.S. coin history, a pink gold coin is struck! The U.S. Mint found a way to incorporate pink, the color associated with breast cancer awareness, into a magnificent commemorative proof! By blending 85% gold and 15% copper, its brilliant blush color is attained. This stunning hue is not only appealing for collectors, but survivors, families of survivors – and really, anyone wanting to promote breast cancer awareness!


BREAST CANCER AWARENESS COMMEMORATIVE – This is a first-year, one-year only program to promote awareness for breast cancer, which afflicts thousands of women and men yearly. The first-ever Breast Cancer Awareness Commemorative Coin Act was signed into law on April 29, 2016 and three coins commemorating the cause are being released. Don’t wait, order yours today!


BREATHTAKING DESIGN WITH PROOF FINISH – Truly brilliant, this 7.9-gram gold coin shines with a blend of 85% gold and 15% copper to attain the beautiful blush hue. It's a product of hand-selected planchets, struck multiple times with polished dies to produce its lustrous, mirror-like finish. A spectacular one-year design features butterflies, the symbols of hope. This proof's obverse is designed with a butterfly fluttering above two women: one woman is holding her crossed hands on her chest, the other is raising her arm in the fight against breast cancer. An image of the breast cancer awareness ribbon also graces the obverse. The reverse of the coin depicts a large, bold image of butterfly, once again, instilling hope for the cause.


AUTHENTIC LEGAL TENDER – This 2018 Breast Cancer Awareness Proof is United States $5 legal tender, a treasure for commemorative coin collectors, as well as survivors, friends and family!


CERTIFIED PF70 PROOF FIRST DAY OF ISSUE COINS – These sonically sealed coins are graded perfect Proof-70 (PF70) from NGC, a coveted grade, sought-after by collectors! NGC designed special labels for this commemorative series including this one with a black core! What’s more, these coins are also certified to be First Day of Issue (FDI) coins. Coins such as these are only eligible to receive this designation when the invoice date is the same day as the coin was first released. Collectors seek out FDI coins because they are considered to be the best struck coins produced when the dies are fresh and brand new. They are also struck multiple times at slower speed which pushes metal into every crevice of the die. The end result is a beautiful proof that stands out among all others. Only a scant few coins EVER receive this designation and they represent just a tiny fraction of any coin’s mintage.


SPECIAL MINTAGE – Only 50,000 of these stunners are available. This is a first-time, one-year only, modern commemorative coin and with the small allotment for these coins minted at U.S. Mint at West Point – they will most certainly will sell out!


Call it what you like, "pinkies", blush beauties, rose gold coins … but this proof is amazingly original.  With so many commemorative coin collectors wanting in on a proof that’s truly unique, you’ll want to hurry to get one for your personal collection. It makes a thoughtful and appreciated gift for anyone touched by breast cancer, too.
