Arnold Palmer was more than a professional athlete. He was a symbol for generations of young Americans just how far grit and dedication can take you. That’s why this fixed-mintage 2.5 oz silver proof coin from PAMP is a perfect legacy for Arnie’s legend.
Let’s take a closer look…
Arnold Palmer commemorative 2.5 oz silver proof coin
This hefty 2.5 oz silver coin’s reverse features an excellent likeness of Palmer with his trademark grin, the one any golf fan’s seen a thousand times. Palmer’s famous umbrella logo and the PGA logo as well.
The reverse features Ian Rank-Broadley’s iconic fifth portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Now, this isn’t the first time Palmer met Her Majesty… Twice, during White House state dinners honoring the Queen of England, Arnie Palmer was on the guest list (1991 and 2007). We must assume the same smile we see on the reverse of the coin was how he greeted the Queen…
This 2.5 oz coin, minted in 0.999 fine silver, is finished in proof quality. That’s why each detail looks so crisp and seems to come alive. The old-world craftsmanship of PAMP SA is on full display here.
Each coin is safely tucked away in a tamper-resistant protective shell, complete with assay card straight from PAMP. Along with Palmer’s signature, his trademark umbrella and the PGA logo, the assay card includes each coin’s uniquely-numbered certificate of authenticity, metal fineness and weight, quality and the Swiss assayer’s signature. The numbers matter here, because PAMP only made 2.500 of these collector’s items.
This proof silver coin is truly worthy of the legacy of such a great man. We don’t expect them to last long, and we don’t expect to receive any more when this batch is sold. So if you have any love for the game of golf, or for Arnold Palmer and his legacy, don’t hesitate! Secure your 2.5 oz Arnold Palmer commemorative 2020 silver proof coin right now.
Why Arnold Palmer?
Arnold Palmer (1929-2016) wasn’t just one of the greatest and most charismatic players in the history of golf. He was the quintessential American icon of personal achievement and charity. He was a modest, plain-spoken, “just-folks” guy who took the hoity-toity sport of golf off the elite country clubs and made it a popular sport that anyone could play.
He’s most famous for his golfing victories. He won 92 championships including 62 PGA Tour trophies. His most famous wins were his four Masters Tournament triumphs, the 1960 U.S. Open and both the 1961 and 1962 Open Championships. To date, he’s still fifth on the Tour’s all-time victory list. Palmer became one of thirteen charter inductees into the World Golf Hall of Fame.
And his recognition extended far beyond his beloved sport. Palmer was awarded both the Congressional Gold Medal and the Presidential Medal of Freedom, America’s two highest civilian honors.
His philanthropic work lives on in Arnie's Army Charitable Foundation to help children and youth. The Foundation built the Winnie Palmer Hospital for Women & Babies Center, The Howard Philips Center for Children & Families, the Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children and the Winnie Palmer Nature Reserve. Palmer recognized that celebrity wasn’t an end in itself. He was determined to make the world a better place than he found it.
He was an amazing man who deserves an amazing tribute.
