BREVARD COUNTY • INDIAN HARBOUR BEACH, FLORIDA – The Highland Mint, located at the corner of Eau Gallie Boulevard and South Patrick Drive in Indian Harbour Beach, will produce the official coin to be used in Super Bowl LV, which will be played in Tampa on Sunday.
The Highland Mint has produced the official coin for the big game since Super Bowl XXVIII in 1993.
“The Super Bowl flip coin is really something special because it’s actually used to start a game,” said Michael Kott, President of the Highland Mint.
“You know, the Super Bowl is one of the biggest sporting events in the world and we like to say here ‘the game doesn’t start without us’ so there’s a lot of pride when you see that coin.”
The coin will also be used for any overtime flips that are necessary, such as was the case in Super Bowl LI held in Houston between New England and Atlanta four years ago.
The coin to be used in the game is currently near the site of the Super Bowl, Kott said. He added that it would be sent to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio after it is used.
The Highland Mint will produce a limited run of 10,000 commemorative Super Bowl 55 Official 2-Tone Dueling Flip Coins, featuring the Chiefs vs. the Bucs and officially licensed by the National Football League.
Coin #1 will be flipped to start the Super Bowl, the rest will be made available to the public.
The coin is carefully struck in a fine silver plate and selectively plated with 24kt gold. Each 1.5-inch diameter flip coin is individually numbered and protected in an acrylic capsule to preserve its mint condition.
The coin is presented in a custom 6-inch x 4-inch booklet case, allowing you to flip the center page to view both sides.
Each coin comes with an individually-numbered certificate of authenticity to match the number on the coin is included in the custom case.
