Coin Story

Almost as famous as the name Ferrari is its emblem, a black prancing horse on a yellow background with the letters „S F“ which stand for „Scuderia Ferrari“. This is its history: In June 1923, Enzo Ferrari won a race at the Savio track in Ravenna. He was congratulated, celebrated and invited to Lord Enrico Baraccas house, a peer from the region. The son of Enrico Baracca, Francesco Baracca, was a highly decorated combat pilot in World War I. In 1916 the “The Cavallino Rampante” emblem was fitted on his aeroplane in honour of his service in the cavalry. In 1918, Francesco Baracca died in a plane crash; his emblem was removed and sent to his parents. During his visit at Lord Baraccas house Enzo Ferrari was given this emblem by the mother of Francesco as a talisman. It was to bring Enzo Ferrari and his car good luck. Enzo herished this gift and selected the horse as the basis of the Ferrari trademark. He added the yellow background, which was the symbolic colour of his birthplace Modena, the company’s domicile at that time. The Ferrari logo is still used in an almost unmodified form.

Reverse Design

The reverse captures two legendary Ferraris and the Logo. The Logo (in cloisonne) offsets itself from the silver proof background, due to the applied color. Two Ferraris, as well as significant dates, are finely engraved into the silver coin.

Obverse Design

Each coin features the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the denomination of the coin.

Packaging

The Chelyabinsk Meteorite coin comes encapsuled with the Certificate of Authenticity.
