The Crown Mint’s ‘Coca-Cola’ coin range is now bigger by one with the launch of a new one-ounce silver bullion coin featuring the logo created in 1969 by designer Elizabeth Arden. Enjoy Coke is still a logo that’s in wide use today, so clearly Arden knew her stuff, and it’s no surprise to see the mint pick it out for a coin design.
This one is a little unusual in having a proof finish, blistercard packaging, and a relatively high mintage of 50,000 pieces. The bullion coins the Crown Mint have released to date for this franchise have all been closer to the norm, so this is something a bit different, after all, how many square bullion coins are there? The Certi-Lock packaging enhances security, and indicates that Scottsdale Mint are likely responsible for the production. We’re seeing a near $50 USD price for this one, which seems a little high for the mintage, but the secure packaging goes some way to explaining that. It should be available to order shortly.
