The Perth Mint is excited to release this 1oz silver proof coin, celebrating 50 years of Hot Wheels.
Hot Wheels were first created 50 years ago when toy maker Elliot Handler, co-founder of Mattel, challenged his design team, comprising a General Motors car designer and rocket scientist, to create model cars that performed better than anything on the market and had the hot rod looks to match.
Since then Hot Wheels has created some of the most innovative cars and track systems which have been avidly collected by three generations.
Struck by The Perth Mint from 1oz of 99.99% pure silver, the coin is issued as legal tender under the authority of the Government of Tuvalu.
The Perth Mint will release no more than 5,000 of the 50 Years of Hot Wheels 2018 1oz Silver Proof Coin.
The reverse of the coin features a depiction of two Hot Wheels cars in vibrant colour with the Hot Wheels 50th Anniversary logo.
Each coin is presented in a clear acrylic case, allowing both sides of the coin to be displayed, and is packaged within a themed shipper.
The coin is accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
