- Established in 1946, Fender® has become a cultural icon in its own right and champions THE SPIRIT OF ROCK-N-ROLL® for all music lovers, from young guitarists just learning to play to legendary musicians. Beginning in the 1950’s slick colors on new cars was all the rage – for Fender® guitars as well! Daphne Blue began as a GM Cadillac color in 1958. It became a popular color for the Stratocaster® just two years later. This 1oz pure silver guitar shaped coin captures this classic color perfectly, a nod to the Stratocaster® originals! Daphne Blue is the final issue in the series following Surf Green and Fiesta Red. Limited mintage of 6,000 coins.
