2010 FIFA World Cup Celebrated with Silver and Gold Coins

June 18, 2010 – As the South African Mint produced silver and gold coins to commemorate the 2010 FIFA World Cup, soccer fans and collectors are even more excited about being able to take their pick from three exclusive gold coins and one silver coin. There is also a silver premium edition set with a silver medal measuring 40 mm in diameter and five different one-ounce silver coins. These limited edition silver and gold coins are superbly designed and will be a coveted acquisition for collectors.

Ian E. Bennett, President and CEO of the Royal Canadian Mint, which is the exclusive Canadian retailer of these silver and gold coins, expressed the Mint’s appreciation for the passion of Canadian soccer fans for the FIFA World Cup. He said that The Mint is “pleased to offer them the South African Mint’s beautiful gold and silver coins as worthy tributes to the world’s best players of the beautiful game.”

The South African silver and gold coins feature the FIFA World Cup official trophy and are also adorned with native South African symbols. They also carry the provincial coat-of-arms from different host stadiums as well as the South African coat-of-arms.

Collectors eagerly await the first set of 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa coins comprising a two-Rand, quarter-ounce pure gold coin first issued in 2006. The design on these coins represents the Western Cape with the bontebok, grapes and the Protea flower, while the eland, Cape Aloe and the sun’s rays represent the Eastern Cape. Only 10,000 coins will be available at a retail price of $595.95 CAD. Collectors must hurry if they want to own a piece of the magical 2010 FIFA World Cup gold coin.
