Sailing into collectable history is our tribute to the centenary of the Titanic. This is great news for lovers of marine history and Titanic aficionados.
It was the world’s most famous passenger ship disaster. On a cold, moonless night just before midnight, the ‘unsinkable’ RMS Titanic struck an iceberg.
Moments before impact, lookout Frederick Fleet peered into the darkness in horror at the approach of a menacing black shape. With the icy monolith just yards away, his alarm initiated frantic efforts to slow the ship and change course. They proved fruitless. Over the next few hours, an estimated 1,517 doomed souls met their watery fate in the freezing waters of the North Atlantic.
The grave of RMS Titanic, resting deep in the North Atlantic, remains a memorial to those that lost their lives, and a testament to those who bore the lifelong sorrow of that loss.
The coin is struck by The Perth Mint from 1oz of 99.9% pure silver in proof quality.
The coin’s reverse depicts a coloured representation of the White Star Line’s poster design of Titanic, set against the ocean and sky. The inscriptions TITANIC, 100TH ANNIVERSARY and The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark are also incorporated into the design.
Issued as legal tender under the authority of the Government of Tuvalu, the coin’s obverse depicts the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the 2012 year-date and the monetary denomination.
The Perth Mint will release no more than 5,000 of these coins.
The coin is accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
The Coin Sheriff program allows our members to request an audit on any auction, which is completed by an independent Numismatic Specialist who assesses the accuracy of the item description and pictures.
