Commemorative coins from the Perth Mint, celebrating the cult classic Back to the Future and the 2015 date depicted in the film, are set to be released at the Precious Metals Investment Symposium (PMIS).
PMIS, which is themed Back to the Asset of the Future, will be held from October 26-27 at the Four Seasons Hotel in Sydney, with the coin series to be launched on the first day of the event.
“We are thrilled to host the release of these limited edition gold and silver coins. The coins are perfectly aligned with the theme of our Symposium, which will also feature the iconic DeLorean car on display,” Kerry Stevenson, Managing Director of Symposium said.
“Precious metals, such as gold, have always offered great insurance to investors, maintaining their value over centuries and offering protection from future market turmoil.
“With growing market volatility, exacerbated by scepticism of the Chinese economy and fears of a domestic housing bubble, there has never been a better time to educate investors in the need to invest in precious metals and go back to the asset of the future,” she said.
The Back to the Future coins will be available in three variations: a 1oz Silver Proof Coin and 1/4oz Gold Proof Coin, both featuring an image of the DeLorean, as well as a 2oz Silver Proof Coin depicting a hoverboard.
The Precious Metals Investment Symposium is the largest event of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere, bringing together all aspects of the Australian precious metals industry from mining through to bullion.
Internationally renowned experts, such as Barry Dawes, Executive Chairman of Paradigm Securities and former Managing Director at Deutsche Bank, John Butler, will be delivering keynote speeches. The Symposium will also include company presentations from the likes of Evolution Mining (ASX: EVN) and Metals X (ASX: MLX).
