Rosland Capital unveiled the Ayrton Senna gold and silver coin collectionÂ at the 2017 Formula 1 Monaco Grand Prix in May. The collection was designed in collaboration with the Ayrton Senna Institute to honor Ayrton Senna, the famous Brazilian driver who had his first landmark win 30 years ago at the Monaco Grand Prix.Â Rosland Capital CEO Marin AleksovÂ presented the collection to Ayrtonâ€™s niece, BiancaÂ Senna, as part of a series of celebratory events that recognized the first of his record six wins in Monte Carlo.
The collection includes 180 2.5 oz gold and 300 2.5 oz silver coins, as well as six 30 oz gold coins in celebration of the special 30th anniversary. Minted by Swiss-based PAMP S.A., each coin is individually crafted and displays an image of Ayrton Senna. A share of the proceeds will directly benefit the foundation.
â€śWe are honored to be part of this wonderful celebration of the anniversary of Ayrton Sennaâ€™s first win in Monaco thirty years ago,â€ť said Aleksov. â€śWe know how important his legacy is to all Formula 1 â€“and indeed all sport â€“ fans â€“ and as such we feel very privileged to have been asked by the Ayrton Senna Foundation to produce this special range of gold and silver coins.â€ť
This is the second year that Rosland Capital has partnered with Formula 1. In 2016,Â Rosland Capital was named the official distributor of the Formula 1Â® Coin Collection.
