The Mount Everest ‘First Ascent’ Silver Proof Coin

On the 29th of May 1953, Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay began their record-breaking summit of Mount Everest.

This year, we celebrate the 70th anniversary of this extraordinary exhibition commemorating the first-time man stood taller than any ever had before them.


This stunning coin has been struck from 2oz of Pure Silver and features an intricately detailed design achieved through state-of-the-art Smartminting© technology, capturing the surface of the world’s tallest mountain and the route Hillary and Norgay took in their successful summit attempt.

Your coin also features detailed micro-engraved text around the obverse of the coin that reads:

On 29 May 1853, New Zealand-born Hillary and his Nepalese mountaineering partner Tenzing Norgay, became the first humans to stand on the summit of Everest, as members of the 1953 British Mount Everest expedition, their triumph was the glorious result of a long, complex and brilliantly co-ordinated campaign.”


You can easily admire every point of detail, thanks to the coin’s 45mm dimension and three-dimensional surface.

And to pay homage to the year of this record-breaking expedition, a strict edition limit of ONLY 1953 coins are available worldwide. With just 50 available for the Westminster collector…
