COINSPLUS NOW SPECILAIZES IN COINS
This coin set depicts four of the biggest, strongest and most powerful heavy-duty trucks in road haulage. Noted also for their advanced levels of efficiency, safety, driver comfort and styling, the trucks have each earned the right to be known as a ‘king of the road’.
Each coin is struck from 1oz of 99.9% pure silver in proof quality.
The reverse of each coin portrays a heavy-duty truck and its manufacturer’s logo in a design featuring a coloured background.
Kenworth Truck Company’s classic W900, featuring a long hood and a distinctive cathedral grille, is an awe-inspiring vehicle. As the US manufacturer of premium trucks like to say, ‘No matter where it goes, it won’t go unnoticed’.
Scania’s modern line-up of heavy prime movers includes the R500, an exceptionally powerful model boasting a 500hp V8 engine. It’s designed for carrying out the ‘really tough’ jobs, says the Swedish manufacturer, a specialist in heavy transport since 1891.
US maker Freightliner says it ‘threw out the regular playbook on heavy-duty trucks’ to create the graceful, windswept lines of Cascadia. With its low drag coefficient and ultra-quiet luxury cab, it’s a truck that rides more like a prestige car.
Isuzu says its focus on ‘creation without compromise’ is responsible for its rise to prominence as a global supplier of heavy-duty trucks. In Gigamax, aka the E-Series, its trucks epitomise a new generation of efficiency, safety and intelligent Japanese design.
The reverse of each coin also incorporates The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark.
Each 2010-dated coin, which bears Raphael Maklouf's effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II on its obverse, is issued as legal tender under the authority of the Government of Tuvalu.
The coins are housed in a sleek presentation case and illustrated shipper.
The Perth Mint will release no more than 4,000 of these four-coin sets.
Each set is accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
