2010 world cup coin launched

Apart from special world cup courts, world cup buses, world cup police stations and special world cup festivals, the South African Mint Company have produced special 2010 FIFA soccer world cup gold coins.

Some of the quarter ounce gold coins were launched this week at the renovated Soccer City Stadium – the venue for the opening match and the final of the 2010 soccer world cup.

The logo of the coins features the 2010 FIFA World Cup emblem as well as elements from both the South African and the German Coat-of-Arms, as a symbol of the hand-over from the 2006 German World Cup to South Africa.

“The FIFA logo was especially designed with an African flair using the new flag’s colours and the footballer portrayed in a San or rock painting style,” said SA Mint Deputy General Manager Natanya Van Niekerk.

According to Van Niekerk, the miniature image of Soccer City on the reverse of the gold coin “will celebrate the historical matches which will take place at the spectacular stadium in 2010, for generations to come.”

    Looks good!
    South Africa has a lot of gold deposits anyway, and with the price of gold going accross the roof this is a well-marketable item. Especially because gold prices will eventually start to go down, this is the time to sell!
