American Silver Bullion Dealer Provident Metals Offers Special Mintage Featuring the Most Successful Thoroughbred in Horse Racing History

DALLAS, TX–(Marketwired - May 12, 2015) – Online precious metals dealer Provident Metals is offering a limited edition silver bar set in honor of horseracing’s most celebrated stallion — Secretariat.

The story of one of America’s greatest Thoroughbreds began in 1969 with a coin toss. Legend has it Penny Chenery of Meadow Stable and Ogden Phipps of Wheatley Stable flipped a coin to determine who would get first-pick of the offspring of Bold Ruler, one of the preeminent stallions of his day. Chenery lost the coin toss and ended up with second choice – a chestnut red colt with three white socks and a star with a narrow blaze. After a year of remaining unnamed, Meadow Stable’s secretary finally named the foal “Secretariat.”

In 1973, this future superstar racehorse galloped his way into the record books with three historic wins on May 5, May 19 and June 9, setting record times that remain unbeaten to this day.

Now, these three legendary wins are memorialized for all time on limited mintage Secretariat Silver Commemorative Sets offered by Provident Metals. The three 1-ounce bars that come in each set are made of .999 fine silver and depict Secretariat hurtling down the racetrack and into American sporting fame. The date, city, and state of Secretariat’s famous victories are inscribed on the back of the silver bars and the set comes packaged in a colorized display box corresponding to the color of the garland Secretariat won at the historic racetracks.

“What makes this set so unique is that Penny Chenery herself, owner of Secretariat, officially licensed these silver bars,” commented Provident Metals COO Jake Haugen. “That hasn’t happened since 1973 when he first rose to fame.”

Only 1,973 individually numbered sets will be produced.
