The Win a New Corvette Silver Round ... A New Collectible Category.
Posted on 4/1/2007
For forty-plus years, give or take a decade or so, most of us at one time or another, have entered into one of those "Win a New Something" sweepstakes. After entering, all we received was one of those little red ticket stubs with a number on it. So, Ken Streetman, President of The CapComm Group in Houston, TX, thought it was time to break away from that old tradition.
He commissioned a limited edition of 2,500 silver medals to be made for Win a New Corvette. These beautifully struck, proof quality medallions are one troy ounce of .999 fine silver. To add to their collectability, they were engraved and individually numbered on the reverse. After minting, they were sent directly to NGC for encapsulation.
If you don't win the Corvette, you'll have a great collectible instead of a little ticket stub. With over 1,550,000 registered Corvette enthusiasts across America, Streetman believes these are the same people that the thousands of coin dealers around the country should get to know a little better. Streetman says, "I'm not trying to compete with any of our coin dealers. I want to introduce some of the million and a half Corvette lovers to the world of coins, as well as introduce a new and better way to enter the annual Win a New Corvette Sweepstakes."
Streetman thinks that every coin dealer in America should buy one of these medals. CapComm has another 23 silver medals already on the drawing board. It seems like every coin dealer in America would want to get in on the ground floor of this very "first of its kind" medal. "Remember, we're only minting 2,500 of these numbered medals per issue. That's all CapComm will ever produce for any one of these Win A New Sweepstakes issues," Streetman says. "The coins are certainly worth a look."
With over 1,000 Corvette Clubs across America and their million-plus members, Streetman is betting on the Corvette enthusiasts to make the market and set the stage for buying and selling these silver medals, giving collectors and dealers alike something new for a change. "Buy a silver medal and win a new Corvette! What a concept! This has never been done before... and it's a much better way to enter a sweepstakes."
