This 2.5 oz silver proof coin, a collaboration with Formula 1®, celebrates the achievements of Michael Schumacher, seven-time FIA World Champion. Minted by Swiss-based PAMP SA, this 0.999 fine silver coin is legal tender in the Solomon Islands.
Let’s take a closer look…
This coin’s reverse features a 3/4 profile portrait of Schumacher, his eyes narrowed as if focused on a particularly tricky racecourse. The detail that’s gone into this design is truly spectacular and looks even better with its proof-quality finish. To the right, we see Schumacher’s signature and the dynamic Formula 1 logo.
The obverse features Ian Rank-Broadley’s fifth portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. Around the coin’s edge are the nation of issue (Solomon Islands), its purity, its face value of $5 and its 2020 year of minting.
Each proof silver coin has protective packaging that features Schumacher’s signature along with assay information direct from PAMP. Along with a unique certificate number, the coin’s metal purity, weight, quality statement and the signature of the Swiss assayer attesting to these facts.
Produits Artistiques Métaux Précieux, better known as PAMP, has been a globally-recognized precious metals refiner and mint for nearly 50 years. They produce nearly half of the world's gold bars yearly and mint coins for a number of nations. They're also famously the first refiner who began "minting" their gold bullion bars, giving them an engraved design and a coin-like finish.
In other words, PAMP is absolutely world-class and second-to-none. If nothing else, the quality and artistry of this Schumacher proof coin speaks for itself.
You must not be a Formula 1 racing fan… Until 2020, Schumacher held the records for most Grand Prix wins (91), pole positions (68) and podium finishes (155). These records have since been broken by the British phenomenon Lewis Hamilton. Schumacher and Hamilton are tied for the most-ever World Drivers’ Championship titles (7).
Schumacher still holds the Grand Prix record for most fastest laps (77).
Schumacher was legendary for pushing his car to the limit, well past the red line, while racing. He demanded the best performance from himself and his teams, and was widely recognized as a dynamic leader in the Formula 1 racing world. Tragically, in 2013 he suffered traumatic injury that permanently removed him from racing.
