This exquisite coin honors the first success and first ascension of Mt. Everest by Tenzing Norgay and Edmund Hillary, who reached the world’s highest peak on May 29, 1953. Mount Everest, standing tall at 29,031.7 feet (8,848.86 meters), is the highest mountain above sea level on Earth. Located in the Himalayan range, it straddles the border of Nepal and Tibet. The mountain has long been revered by local peoples and was named after Sir George Everest, a British surveyor of South Asia. It presents an extreme challenge to climbers, drawing adventurers from around the world.
