Mendelssohn Silver Coin

Buy Mendelssohn Silver Coin, 1oz, 99.99% Pure Silver, Perth Mint Australia

Mendelsohn Silver Coin

Goethe compared the child-prodigy Mendelssohn to the young Mozart. Berlioz said “There is one god – Bach – and Mendelssohn is his prophet.” Unquestionably one of the most gifted composers of all time, Felix Mendelssohn is the perfect choice to begin this superb new five-coin series celebrating anniversaries of Romantic-era musicians. The coin is struck by The Perth Mint from 1oz of 99.9% pure silver. Born 200 years ago in Hamburg, Germany, Felix Mendelssohn created such masterpieces as Fingal’s Cave, the Scottish Symphony, the Italian Symphony and the Wedding March from the incidental music for A Midsummer Night’s Dream before his career was cut tragically short at the age of just 38. His image on the coin’s reverse is accompanied by a large treble clef, music notes and the inscription ‘Felix Mendelssohn 1809 – 1847’. The coin’s reverse also incorporates The Perth Mint’s historic ‘P’ mintmark. Issued as legal tender under the authority of the Government of Tuvalu, the coin bears the Raphael Maklouf effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II on its obverse. The Perth Mint will release no more than 5,000 of these coins. Each coin is accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity. Each coin is housed in a presentation display case and customised shipper.
