Super Bowl XLVIII Highland Mint "Coin"

Yes I know this not really a coin but that is what everyone calls them since they are used for Super Bowl Coin flipping. This is also not the official version used, that one is silver and gold plated and limited to 10,000. This is a bronze version in an acrylic stand sold by the hundred thousands.


The coin is from the Highland Mint and they have been making Super Bowl coins for over two decades in Australia. The one used at the game is the highest quality and like I mentioned before is then replicated and limited to 10,000, it sells for about $60.00 on sale. This one I got on sale for $10.00 is not as sharp and a bunch of them had stains so it took a while to find a clean one.

It comes in an acrylic stand that is etched with SUPER BOWL XLVIII, the NFL logo, the HM The Highland Mint logo, and NEW YORK · NEW JERSEY FEBRUARY 2, 2014. I lost one of the stands legs but I will find or make a replacement.

I would prefer the official version made with silver and 24k gold plating but that was to expensive for a souvenir to a game I did not watch, yet.

1976 Medal made by Medalic Art Company to Proof quality in .999 fine silver. Designer Frank Gasparro to mark the visit of Queen Elizabeth to the USA.

Just twice metal value, whatever the weight of silver is its current value.

That is in high mint state if scratched in anyway just metal value.
