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.


I’m sure you've seen 3D minting before, but never like this. The level of detail in this Mount Everest coin is nothing short of phenomenal, with the famous mountain protruding from the coin's surface.

Your coin perfectly recreates the world’s tallest mountain and even shows the route Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay took to summit Everest for the very first time.

The craftsmanship and precision are unmatched.

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 the opportunity to own this remarkable coin is extremely limited. The Mount Everest coin is strictly limited to only 1,953 pieces worldwide - a number that pays homage to the year of the first successful ascent

And here's the kicker: it's already sold out at the Mint. You can be in a select group of people that is even smaller than the number of people that have scaled Mount Everest itself.

You can secure your coin today with a deposit of just £27.50 (+p&p), followed by 9 interest-free monthly payments of the same – simply select ‘I would like to pay in instalments’ during checkout.
