There will be a special commemorative coin minted to start this historic game between The LSU Tigers and the Oklahoma Sooners. The one-ounce pure silver coin will have the LSU logo on one side of the coin and the Oklahoma Sooners logo on the reverse of the Coin. The coin used to start this Sugar Bowl Classic, will be coin serial number one. The other coins in the mintage will be available for the public to purchase.
The coins are an exclusive item and will not be sold in retail
outlets—only via a toll-free number (1-866-243-2287) or website (HampsterDirect.com). Each coin is priced at $39.95
and will come in a special box with a certificate of authenticity.
Sugar Bowl will use the first coin in the mintage to start the game, while the
rest of the pure silver coin mintage will be available to college football fans
nationally. There will be only 5000 pure silver one-ounce coins minted. There
will not be a second edition.
These coins are exclusive to Collectors
Source and are not available in any store
"We know how excited LSU
fans have been about this historic season and we are grateful to The Sugar Bowl
that these coins are available for circulation," stated Ralph Purillo of
Collectors Source. "These coins are sure to become a family heirloom for SEC
fans, LSU fans and Sooner Fans. This is something very special"
been a coin minted to commemorate the LSU SEC championship. Those coins are also
available at HampsterDirect.com.
These coins will sell out quickly
and the public is asked to order promptly.
"5000 coins nationally is a
very small number when you consider the magnitude of the interest of this game"
cautioned Purillo. " We would hate to have fans disappointed."
