2012 Titanic Commemorative Coins from World Mints

The year 2012 marks the 100th anniversary of the maiden voyage of the Titanic. Various mints around the world have marked the occasion with the issuance of commemorative coins.

As opposed to the United States Mint, world mints generally have much greater latitude in deciding which people, places, animals, or events will be commemorated on their coins. Therefore when there is an anniversary for an event of world-wide significance, there tend to be many issues from world mints carrying the same theme.

This post will provide an overview of various 2012 Titanic Commemorative Coins from around the world. This includes coins coverage at Coin Update, as well as others mentioned by readers. If I have left any others out, please let me know in comments.

Royal Canadian Mint

Designed by maritime artist Yves Bérubé, the reverse design of the coin features a view of the bow and port side of the Titanic along with the imposing image of a large iceberg.  A design also incorporates a map of the Canadian Atlantic coast and the nautical coordinates of where the ship sank. The coins are limited to a mintage of 20,000 pieces.

The Royal Canadian Mint has also produced a silver plated copper 50 cent coin, limited to 15,000, and a 25 cent coin with no stated limit. The 50 cent coin has a diameter of 42 mm (which is wider than the 34 mm diameter of the $10 silver coin). The 25 cent coin includes an illustrated folder with facts and a time line.

    Hi Michael,

    Your poll seems to be missing the Cook Islands and Fiji coins.

    That having been said, I’d never seen the Fiji commemorative before. I might think about picking that one up too. The mother of pearl core looks amazing.

  2. says

    CO, read the sentence above the poll…he only included the “basic” silver coins to keep it fair…I think the “Mother of Pearl” would win hands down if it were included, but it’s a $700+ coin.

    I purchased several of the New Zealand (Niue) coins a few weeks ago and they really look great in person. It gets my vote…really hard to beat…low mintage (2229), reasonable price ($82.39) and great display.

  3. jeff72 says

    Wow…I thought I found all of the Titanic commems …turns out I missed quite a few …(that’s why we let the pro’s do this research stuff ;) …very nicely done Michael. I will need to spend a little time studying these since I thought I had seen them all.

    I look at overall beauty, engineering, and layout ….plus I have to admit the packaging can be pretty persuasive …totally non-numismatic-like I know…

  4. Hidalgo says

    @Michael,

    I want to reiterate how much I enjoy the new Wold Mint blog. I am a coin collector who appreciates the beauty, designs, etc. of coins throughout the world. Making profits is secondary.

    This blog certainly allows me to become more aware of the world around us and what is available for collectors like me to seek.

  5. Hidalgo says

    I voted for the Royal Mint – Alderney, although the Canadian version came in a close 2nd.

    I looked at the designs and the appropriateness of the theme to the event. I did not want coloring to influence my selection.

  6. G says

    I like that the Perth Mint is the poster for the original Titanic- for me, it makes it a bit more interesting. I think the mother of pearl coin is great, and the Niue was my second after Perth- which really looks cool in person.

  7. Nate says

    I voted for the Canadian design. I don’t care for the look of the Perth coin as much but I do think it’s cool that they used the artwork from an original poster.

    Sidenote – did anyone else see that someone paid $999 on eBay for a Berlin Coin Show dragon that graded 70. And who was saying that grading world coins doesn’t do much to increase the value?? :-). I think this is an anomaly and that buyer did not get a very good value though….

  8. says

    Nate,

    That would be me, and I meant it in only for what I consider to be modern issues that are largely problem-free (I cannot ever remember receiving a dragon with any kind of issue at all, bullion or otherwise). I certainly support grading for modern issues with problems or for classic coins.

    If someone paid $1K for a black dragon, he or she was badly ripped off.

  9. Rolling Thunder says

    Wow, had not seen the image of the Fiji coin before – a work of art – but ~>$900. most places I looked!

    @ Steve – where did you see for~$700. – not that I’ll be buying one, just curious!

    @ Capt Overkill – the beginning of your post “That would be me” scared me a little, I thought you were going to say you paid $1K ;-)

  10. Schalk says

    Michael, if you have the time, it would be great if you could do a similar survey, some time in the future, of the 2012 Olympics coins.

  11. Shutter says

    I voted for the Canadian $10, but would have voted for Fiji if that was a choice. I also think that the Canadian ¢50 is pretty nice. OTOH, Canadian ¢25 is pretty awful.

    One question, RCM says the ¢50 coin is sold out. At $35? Who the hell is spending that kind of scratch on a copper coin?

  12. Wes says

    I voted for the Royal Canadian $10 coin because of the design and quality. I like the Royal Mint Alderney second. The Niue image looks like a decal.

  13. Louis says

    Shutter,
    For once we agree, to some extent anyway. I also voted for the Canadian $10. The silver plated half sold out all 15,000 coins in one day.

    Look at e-Bay. Several people have paid $100 bucks for that coin. Many dealers are out, but if you look around it is still available for about $40.

    Jeff72: -actually, the photo is a little misleading -I’ve seen (2) Niue photos out there -one is very colorful like the one shown here and the other is not so “decal” like. I’m going to buy one since I do like this version the best, the engineering aspect of the coin i.e. compass increments and world as a backdrop…and though I normally do not favor “art-work-colored coins” ..for a better lack of terms, I like that the ship is unmistakably the Titanic….it’s a bold coin in my opinion
    :)

  15. SmallPotatos says

    Thanks for this write-up and survey Michael! I ended up voting for the Canadian Minted coin, but i liked them all. i am still not sure about color coins, but the one that stood out to me the most was the Canadian 50 cent piece. coloring just the water was a nice touch, and not overwhelming. i would have purchased one, but they are sold out at the mint website.

  16. says

    @ Rolling Thunder…I was looking at completed ebay auctions (true auctions that start at $1.00)…the lastest one ended on 3/6 and sold for $670.
    There is currently only one “auction” going on…it’s at $449 with 3 days remaining. All the other listings are “buy it now” at $950+, but no one is paying that. The true auctions are a good indicator of market value.

  17. says

    Rolling Thunder,

    Don’t worry, even I am not crazy (or rich) enough to spend $1K on that coin :-)

    I was expecting Niue to run away with this poll, I am a bit surprised to see so the Canadian variety doing so well. My Niue coin should be arriving tomorrow, can’t wait to get it.

  18. G says

    1k for the Berlin Dragon in a 70? Well… I can’t say it upsets me. Was it NGC? I have never received a 70 back on any world coins I’ve submitted to PCGS (probably a mistake in terms of $), but I like the PCGS holders much better. Who knows, maybe it will be a population 1 and somebody will offer him 5k for his precious…

  19. says

    High Relief Dragon
    I just noticed a couple of auctions someone has on ebay for NGC PF69 and NGC PF70 HR Dragons…looks like 24 of each. What is unusual about the labels is that they also have the designation “One of First 500 Struck”.
    I wonder how that designation is determined? I don’t think the # on the COA has anything to do with when the coin was struck, so how do they know?

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/230758684256?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1438.l2649

    Anyway….$499 for a PF69 is way too high….the 70′s are $699.
    I’m looking forward to keeping mine in the OGP…it should ship next week.

  20. Shutter says

    Steve,

    You can safely ignore “One of First 500 Struck”. There were 415 HR dragons on that one invoice. Most likely a bulk submission of 500 coins (notice no ER, though it should qualify for it). Somehow he conned NGC into using the phrase “One of First 500 Struck”, but it is pretty meaningless. At best, he got “One of First 500 COAs Printed”.

  21. Louis says

    I got my HR dragon today. It’s nice, but much smaller than you expect it to be even accounting for the extra thickness. The diameter is smaller than a half dollar, closer to the size of a quarter, whereas the diameter of a regular Perth dragon is greater than most one ounce coins.

  22. says

    Louis, I don’t have my HR Dragon yet, but the specs on the Perth site indicates it is 32.6 mm in diameter…a half dollar is only 30.6 mm….per the Red Book.

  23. Louis says

    Steve,
    Thanks for the specs. So it is about the same as a half dollar, but my point was that it is kind of underwhelming because of the size. And it’s harder to see the fine detail than it would on a wider coin. I showed it to a non-collector friend, and he had trouble making out the design. I think a two ounce coin would have been better, but overall I still like it, esp. for about $105.

  24. Dirk says

    Those First 500 struck HRs are thru paradisemint – just got an email blast from them. They are right across the street from NGC and like all dealers can get special labels and treatment like these. How one dealer can get 500 of one issue is beyond me. Also looks like they will be exclusive dealer for the HR Koalas too. They will be making bank on these in any case.

  25. Hidalgo says

    @Louis – I believe the UHR coins need to be thicker because of the amount of pressures applied to the coin blanks (thus, increasing their relief). If I recall correct, the 2009 UHR gold coin from the US Mint used a similar technique and the coin itself was smaller in size than the regular AGE.

  26. SliderMaker-mp says

    Louis,
    The thicker HR/UHR and piedfort type coins take getting used to-but they grow on you! The 2010 silver Canadian Maple Piedfort is smaller than the regular maple, and is a beauty. (But the fractional 1/5 gold piece looked the size of a thick dime in the pics, hopefully it will be a bargain someday…).

    Hidalgo is correct, the 2009 UHR is smaller, but twice the depth of the regular AGE (unlike the ’21 HR Peace $1 or the original 1907 St Gaudens HR which are the same size compared to the following years).

    A 2-3 oz UHR with Double Dragons and clean fields would be awesome (if BB will accept my pre-order).

  27. says

    Got my Niue coin today. It looks even better in hand than the promo pictures do, in my opinion. Really top notch piece of work, I’m happy I bought it. I’m very surprised it hasn’t sold out yet honestly, since it seems to be almost as popular as the Canadian issue in Michael’s poll.

  28. Hidalgo says

    I am searching for a single 1 ounce silver 2007 Australian koala coin. Can anyone recommend a good site (other than eBay) to find the coin at a respectable price?

  29. says

    Hidalgo,

    I did a fairly extensive search of all the coin sources I have, plus Google. The only two places I can find carrying them is Golden Eagle Coin (a coin shop I have used before, both visiting personally and ordering online). GE is carrying them for $129.50, which seems overpriced to me.

    I also found an NGC-69 graded coin at MCM, going for $119. http://www.moderncoinmart.com/cart1/product.php?productid=24185&cat=0&page=1 This seems like a better deal than GE to me, but I do not know whether you want a slabbed coin or not.

    I do not know if either these are fair prices. Your best bet may be eBay. Hope I was of some help.

  30. Hidalgo says

    @CaptainOverkill.

    Thanks for the recommendation on the 2007 koala. Those are high prices. I’m in no rush, so I can wait for a decent price to appear.

    Also, the Niue 2012 Titanic is on sale at AMPEX. Seems like a great price considering the mintage. However, I’ll pass on it because I simply can’t keep buying every coin that appeals to me….. :) I’ve already spent an arm and a leg on my collection and it’s time to start selling some of my coins to create more free space in my home :)

  31. Rolling Thunder says

    @Schalk
    “Have you seen the Fiji Dragon? Also 5oz silver with mother of pearl inner core – even more stunning. Mintage 888″

    Yes, I’ve seen images of Fiji Dragon, however the Laos jade dragon is probably my favorite dragon – but haven;t seen either coin in person. Not sure I like the gold coloring of the mother of pearl in the Fiji Dragon. The natural color of the mother of pearl in the Fiji Titanic seems much more attractive. And I think it is 1st coin with this type of insert. So if I ever decide to buy one it will probably be the Fiji Titanic.

    @Steve
    “I was looking at completed ebay auctions (true auctions that start at $1.00)…the lastest one ended on 3/6 and sold for $670. There is currently only one “auction” going on…it’s at $449 with 3 days”

    Thanks watching this Fiji Titanic auction to see how it ends.

    I like the looks of these low mintage large (5 oz) silver “coins” but have concerns about the high premiums, long term future interest, and abiility to retain value. Generally I buy coins because I like them – but @ ~$800. I’d feel better buying four 5 OZ silver ATBs (I like their designs too, but sadly not spectacular like the Fijis)

  32. SliderMaker-mp says

    Hidalgo – Sounds like a tough spot to be in. We can help w those clutter issues. Just let us know – Ha!

  33. Hidalgo says

    @Rolling Thunder – I agree with you about the long term value of low mintage large silver coins. Or for that matter, low mintage foreign coins. And in both cases, their ability to retain value.

    There are always exceptions of course, like “key” coins which remain in the minds of collectors or coins, because of their bullion, will go up or down in value, depending on the market value of the bullion (gold, silver, platinum, etc.).

    That’s why it’s important to buy foreign coins you like. Not what you think others will like….. And for me, the niue Titanic coin’s low mintage seems to have become a “new normal.” Low mintages for NZ coins are becoming as common as some low mintage coins for Canada…. Despite low mintages, I simply do not see much demand for some of Canada’s coins…..

  34. Two Cents says

    As for the Canadian coins, I find it odd that the $10 coin is smaller than the 50-cent coin. I know that it is only 1/2-oz. of silver and the size reflects that, but when the 3-piece set is viewed, the silver-plated 50-cent coin will look like the larger denomination and the $10 coin will look like the smaller denomination. Even the 25-cent coin is slightly larger than the $10 coin by one millimeter.

    Nevertheless, the Canadian $10 is my second favorite Titanic coin on this list. (The Niue one is my favorite – I particularly like the compass markings on the border of the coin and the creative “porthole” design of the case.)

  35. Two Cents says

    Anil, I have ordered twice from the Perth Mint and am very happy with them.

    The first order was for the Berlin Dragon, and their computer system took my order right away. There was a holdup on the credit card charge as my credit card’s fraud department denied the international charge because it came from a country that I had never charged anything before. A quick call to the credit card company cleared up the issue — I sent an email to the Perth Mint asking them to resubmit the charge and they did and I got the coin. All of this was done after the coin had sold out on their website.

    The second order was for the High Relief Dragon, and that one is still being processed. However, on another blog, I learned that there was a special free shipping offer in which first-time buyers will not be assessed a shipping fee. I emailed Customer Service at the Perth Mint, and they graciously dropped the shipping fee on my second order because they did charge the fee on my first order.

    All in all, I am very satisfied with the service from the Perth Mint. They responded very quickly to my emails, and I get the feeling that customer satisfaction is very high on their priority list.

    You can easily track the progress of your order online. First the order will be noted as Created when they accept it; then Approved when your credit card is charged; then Picked when they are readying the coin to be shipped; then Dispatched when it is actually mailed and a tracking # is assigned. Very easy to understand, and you know exactly at what stage your order is in at all times.

    Note that your credit card charge will be converted to US$ from AUS$ at the time that the charge comes through. So depending on the fluctuating exchange rate, the actual charge may be higher or lower than what is shown on the mint’s website. My credit card company also charges me a small international transaction fee – yours may or may not.

  36. Two Cents says

    By the way, for anyone who missed out on the High Relief Dragon, the Perth Mint now has it for sale again on their website.

    They do this from time to time, so it pays to check their website periodically. I suppose these coins are from orders that are cancelled, or above the customer limit, or the credit card charge was denied.

  38. jeff72 says

    I did not see anything at Perth for a silver HR Koala ….? -are these gold only?

Also looks like they will be exclusive dealer for the HR Koalas too. They will be making bank on these in any case.

  39. Ikaika says

    Anyone looked into the Ultra High Relief $50 Diamond Jubilee gold coin from the Royal Canadian mint? Mintage was limited to 500 ($2999), but also carried a steep premium of $1000 over melt. It has sold out. The silver version is still available with a 7500 mintage ($129).

  40. says

    @jeff72…I don’t mean to speak for Dirk, but he may of been referring to the HR Kookaburras…per the Paradise Mint site : ” Paradise Mint also has 2012 High Relief Kookaburras coming in May. We will be the exclusive North American Dealer for the Kooks. “

    Jeff72 -thanks Steve. Interesting -

  42. Anil says

    @two Cents, thank you for your response I actually placed an order for titanic coin and Australian Lunar Series II 2012 Year of the Dragon Gemstone Edition. I paid through pay pal. The funds got transferred but I am not able to log on as they have a trouble in the web site. I don’t know how long it will take for the shipment to come by. It is also interesting to note the price of the kilo coin is cheaper in APMEX then at Perth mint any reason you could point to?

  43. says

    Anil,

    I’ve noticed that too, on the price of the dragon gemstone coin. I’ve seen places selling as cheaply as the mid USD $1700 range. The dragon gemstone is not as popular a seller as some of the other dragon varieties, so it’s possible some retailers are cutting prices to try to move it. The premium on that coin is very high, and I suspect that a lot of people with $1800 to blow are just buying regular gold coins instead.

  44. says

    @Anil, if you go to the Perth web-site and look at the top of the page, one of the items you can click on is “Distributors”…you will find that APMEX is listed as one of four US wholesale distributors for the Perth Mint. They get a discount (around 15% I think, but not sure of the exact %),, so they can offer a better deal than the retail price on Perth’s site.

  45. Hidalgo says

    I have noticed that some international coins tend to be less costly when purchased by the USA-based sellers. My guess is that the USA-based sellers, which typically are authorized sellers of the foreign coins, sell the coins at retail prices LESS the foreign tax associated with the country.

    When I lived in Europe, Americans were able to make purchases on the economy and deduct the VAT (value added tax) that was already included in the sales price. The VAT can be significant. So not having to pay the VAT can lead to sales prices for Americans.

  46. says

    Re: Distributors…as I mentioned there are four “wholesale” distributors. You will also see about 27 “retail” US distributors listed including Talisman, Gainesville, Downies and MCM to name a few.

  47. Anil says

    I thing it depends on the number of distrubutors for the royal mint Olympic 1 kg silver coin I had to pay $5950.00 which I thought over priced as govmint was the only place selling them. I alway like coins which are not graded as I like to see them in original packaging but I could not get one so had to pay $$ for MS69. Now govmint with all good intentions called me to see if I was going to buy the kg dragon from Perth mint for $2900.00 for MS70. So I searched in Perth mint and purchased it. I guess I should asked you guys before jumping into it. But bottom I really liked the Olympic coin but I guess I should like it after spending so much on it.

  48. Eric The Red says

    I just received my 10 Dollar Canadian Titanic by maritime artist Yves Bérubé and the sample photo does not do this coin justice. The ship, iceberg, sea and background all have different textures to them and look terrific. I don’t normally get this excited about the finish on a coin but this coin is exceptionally nice. I initially thought it was over priced at almost $80.00 US with shipping but now I wish I bought two.

  49. Matt says

    Mike,

    As a Merchant Mariner, this commemoration in my eyes is truly wonderful. It’s nice to see those perished individuals honored in some fashion and what brilliant ways that these various mints have done so.

  50. Samuel says

    Off topic,
    why it is so difficult to buy something from Downies! First, Downies asked me for passport etc, after I sent my credit card copy etc, they were satisfied. Second, now, my credit card company thought it is a fraudulent transaction, and denied the charge. I have to call Downies, I am not sure they still holding the coins for me or not.

  51. John C says

    Did anyone notice that there are four plumes of smoke coming from the titanic on the Figi mother of pearl coin? I think the last stack on the ship was a dummy stack that was installed just for looks.

  52. Schalk says

    Canadian Titanic $10 Silver coin is now available from MCM for $99.00 as an NGC PF70 UCAM ER – not too bad if one considers that it will cost more than $20 to have the coin graded without the guarantee that it will be graded as a 70. The coin is now sold out on the RCM site.

  53. SmallPotatos says

    Eric,
    I ordered my Canadian Titanic coin on the 7th, and haven’t recieved anything yet. when did you place your order?

  54. John C says

    I am really surprised that these Canadian coins sold out so fast. Who are all the people that bought the CLAD half on the first day? The $10 coin was at least silver and a good looking coin so I can almost believe it sold out already but the half has me totally puzzled. I purchased several of the Niue Titanic coins and am very pleased with the quality of the coin and packaging. To me this coin has way more going for it than the Canadian coins with the higher mintages and less intrinsic value. I am actually surprised that these coins have not sold out yet. I am guessing they will be gone before May since all the news networks will be talking about the 100th anniversary of the sinking in April. Plus the 3d movie is out and who knows what other hoopla will come out. Just my thoughts.

  55. SmallPotatos says

    John C – i think the 50 cent clad was only 15,000 coins and coloured, and the 10 dollar silver was 20,000 with no color. i personally liked the colour on the 50 cent piece, but it was sold out before i knew about them.

  56. SmallPotatos says

    Eric – I logged on to RCM website, and checked my order. Here is what is posted:

    “Notice :
    Due to high demand, we expect delays in the shipment of your collector card until mid-March to mid-April.”

    I ordered on the 7th, and they did not indicate a sell out at that time. I wonder what the delay might be?

  58. Frankie says

    If anyone couldn’t get hold of the Canadian Titanic $10 coin – APMEX have 175 in stock at $64.99, Talismancoins has them at $64.95, and Gatewestcoins for $58.95 which is a steal. RCM shows them as “Temporarily out of stock” with the note that 83% of the mintage has been sold already; i.e. they have some 3400 left. They had them back for sale sporadically during the weekend, but a sell-out is imminent.
    Downies/Eurocollections still have the 50c-colorized coin for $38.50 which is sold-out anywhere else.
    Oh, APMEX raised the price for the Niue Titanic coin by $20! With them being the sole distributor, I think that’s called gouging… They certainly lost my business now.
