This shining 2018 Gold $1 Love and Peace Proof – struck in .5 gram of 99.99% pure gold – recalls the peace-love decade of the 1960’s popularized by such songs as the Beach Boys’ Good Vibrations and Be My Baby by The Ronettes. It was a decade that saw the invention of the microwave, the computer mouse and the LED light. 2001: A Space Odyssey and The Sound of Music played in movie theaters. Neil Armstrong set foot on the moon, and history’s greatest music festival – Woodstock – took place in Bethel, NY.
The symbol for the “peace and love, not war” generation came from designer and pacifist Gerald Holtrom’s icon graphic that, in 1958, was an emblem of protest against the nuclear arms race. This delicate floral motif featuring love on the reverse echoes Holtrom’s original design. The obverse features the coat of arms of the Republic of Palau where this coin is legal tender. Only 15,000 are minted, and each gold coin comes with a certificate of authenticity. Measuring slightly more than 1/2 an inch in diameter, this $1 gold Proof will stand out in any collection!
