- Limited Edition Coins Launched as part of ’40 Years of Williams’ Celebrations
Leading precious metal asset firm, Rosland Capital, today unveiled their latest coin collection – designed in collaboration with Williams Racing – to mark the famous British racing outfit’s 40th Anniversary celebrations that have been taking place throughout 2017.
Two hundred and forty 2.5oz Gold & six hundred and forty 2.5oz Silver Coins, each bearing the ’40 Years of Williams’ logo, are being specially produced to contribute to the ongoing celebrations around this landmark anniversary for one of the most successful racing teams in the history of Formula 1®. Founded by Sir Frank Williams, the Grove-based team has won 16 FIA Formula One World ChampionshipTM titles in its decorated history – nine for constructors and seven for drivers – and is the third most successful team on the F1® grid.
This beautiful, limited edition set of 2.5oz gold and silver coins – of which only 240 will be on sale – is only available from Rosland Capital. The gold 40mm diameter coin is 999.9 fine gold, while the 50mm silver coin is 999.0 fine silver. Both coins are legal tender and bear a portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II on the obverse. These collectors’ items are specially minted as proofs, their highest level of quality, by the Commonwealth Mint.
A silver coin is included at no charge with the purchase of each gold coin. Each set comes in a presentation box with a numbered certificate of authenticity. Silver coins are also available separately in a limited edition of 400.
The limited number of coins created mark them out as timeless collectors’ items for any true Williams Racing and F1® fan. Each individually crafted coin is minted by the U.K-based Commonwealth Mint and celebrates the enduring legacy of one of the most iconic racing teams of all time.
Rosland Capital CEO, Marin Aleksov, was delighted to unveil this new range of coins to mark Williams’ 40th Anniversary: “Williams has become synonymous with success, innovation and courage throughout its glorious history in Formula 1. As such, we are thrilled to be able to contribute to the ’40 Years of Williams’ celebrations. We wanted to reflect the same level of quality and detail that goes into everything Williams does in these coins, something that I feel has been achieved via the expert artistry of our partners at the Commonwealth Mint. We know how important the work of Sir Frank and everyone at Williams has been not only to Formula 1 but to all of motorsport in general and we therefore feel very privileged to have been asked to produce this special range of coins in the team’s honour. This is truly a project that we are extremely proud to be associated with and we continue to wish the entire Williams family further success in the future.”
