Ned Kelly polarises public opinion like no other character from our history. His is a story about the endurance of the human spirit and of the forces which drive an ordinary man into the most extraordinary circumstances. The question posed by the Kelly story is “would you take the law into your own hands?” Fortunately, most of us will never need to answer. Kelly was not as lucky. That’s why his story is so compelling. 140 years ago that story came to a shattering conclusion. Kelly’s stand off with the police in the town of Glenrowan brought about his end, but in many ways, it signalled the start of the Kelly legend. Even in the 21st century, Kelly inspires men who have seen the dark side of life and risen to its challenges. On the 140th anniversary of Kelly’s last stand, we go back to Glenrowan to witness the man become the legend with the “Ned Kelly’s Last Stand 140th Anniversary Golden Proof Coin,” a Palace-approved issue which recalls the power and the desperation of Kelly’s fight in the gleam of layered 24-carat gold and is exclusive only to The Bradford Exchange

Eyewitness accounts of the siege at Glenrowan describe Kelly’s appearance in his famed armour as a “strange apparition”... a “ghost”... “the Devil.” The coin captures this almost superhuman visage as Kelly appears in front of the Glenrowan Inn, with guns blazing, ready to take on the police in one last desperate bid for freedom. The Inn itself is depicted in flames, a tactic of the police to smoke the Kelly gang out. Kelly remains the dominant feature of the scene, with the police depicted as tiny figures, almost cowering in the foreground as they consider how to battle this “ghost.” The level of detailing in the minting is nothing short of extraordinary. From the inn, to the surrounding bushland, to Kelly’s armour complete with bullet holes, the coin is a testament to the minter’s art and the phenomenal skill of the artistisans of The Commonwealth Mint. A 140th anniversary seal is minted in rhodium, a prized and valuable metal from the platinum family, while the date of the shoot, Kelly’s name and his famous last words “Such is life” remind us that far from this being the end of Ned Kelly, the Shoot Out at Glenrowan heralded the start of the Kelly’s legend and his kindred spirit with the battlers of today. Substantial is the only way to describe this coin. At 65mm in diameter and weighing 110 grams, coins of such proportions are struck to mark occasions of great importance. Minted to Proof standards, the highest possible quality, it is entirely layered with pure 24-carat gold creating a coin that is simply without parallel. The technical complexities of striking at such a large diameter ensures that the worldwide mintage has been set remarkably low, at just 599. Strong demand is expect so don’t delay, order yours now!
