Today is Friday 1st January 2016 and we all
at illuminati silver wish you a very Happy and prosperous New Year. Today we are going
to show you what we regard as an incredible and difficult to obtain 1 Kg Nelson Mandela
Robben Island 999 Silver Medallion. Nelson Mandela was born on 18th July 1918
and died on 5th December 2013. After considerable activism against apartheid in South Africa
and being incarcerated for his ‘activities’ he was eventually released after serving 27
years in prison by President de Klerk on 11th February 1990.
As the successful presidential candidate of the ANC, Mandela was inaugurated as the first
black president of South Africa on May 10, 1994 after having received (with Frederick
de Klerk) The Nobel Peace Prize the previous year.
Of the 27 Years he spent in prison for 18 of them, he was incarcerated at Robben Island
and to commemorate this, the Norwegian Mint produced 5000 1 Kilogramme Proof 999 silver
medallions with a gold plated bust of Nelson Mandela, and a gold plated map of Robben island
together with Mandela’s signature. So let’s take a brief look.
Mass: 1 kilogram Diameter: 100.00 mm
Metal Content: Ag 999 Smooth
Maximum Mintage: 5000 This medallion is very difficult to obtain
in the West and the only places we have been able to find it for sale has tended to be
in South Africa. On offer from anything between 15,000 Rand (which is an amazing sale price)
and 31,000 Rand or $960 – $1980 you can tell how pleased we were to acquire this at 5%
over spot price towards the end of last year. The medallion comes with a display box and
a brief history to the coin and a description of Mandela’s life. You will need however
a jewellers loupe to read the writing as its so small.
