With the touch of a pen on board the U.S. battleship USS Missouri on September 2, 1945, World War II officially came to a close. What had started in 1939 had finally ended at the cost of as many as 80 million lives. It is no small thing that people around the world pay solemn tribute to the anniversary of the ending of the most cataclysmic war in human history. To commemorate the 75th anniversary to the end of WWII, Australia’s prestigious Perth Mint has released a series of gold and silver coins that are as poignant as they are beautiful.
In this offer you can secure the gleaming one-ounce silver proof. Beautifully struck in 99.99% pure silver, it was expertly crafted by the mint from hand-selected planchets, polished dies and multiple strikes to produce beautifully frosted details rising over mirror-like fields. In fact, each coin available in this offer has been graded by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) as being in flawless Proof-70 Ultra Cameo (PF70UC) condition, a distinction that means these perfectly-graded proofs will have ZERO imperfections – showing all features and fields exactly as the engraver and mint intended! In addition, NGC has certified your proof to be a First Releases (FR) coin, a designation that means it was received by NGC or an NGC-approved depository within the first 30 days of its release.
The coin’s design is also a fantastic tribute to the peace won during the war and to the soldiers who courageously put their lives on the line to win it. The design features two wreaths, and a dove against a stylized background while below them are silhouettes of marching soldiers. The inscription “75 YEARS END OF WWII” and The Perth Mint’s “P” mintmark also appear in the design.
