Detailed Product Description

This is the only item we are aware of that Hillary and Tenzing both signed at the same time.

An unusual collectible, created in 1978 for the 25th anniversary of the first ascent of Everest by the Franklin Mint.

Ed Hillary and I spoke about this item several times when we met in the 1990s and 2000s. He told me he and Tenzing spent a week signing these in a hotel room in Chicago. I think the memory was not a pleasant one for him! But it did leave us with a legacy of perhaps the only items that Hillary and Tenzing ever signed at the same time and place, and that is positively authentic.
 
This includes a 25 Year Mount Everest Hillary Tenzing  Silver Medal. 1953 - 1978 - 25th Anniversary of the first successful ascent of Mount Everest, includes commemorative coin and a SIGNED First Day Cover, with certificate of authenticity, dated June 1 1978.

The Cover is signed by E.P. Hillary and Tenzing


The Silver Medal is 1 1/4'' in diameter.

On the front of the medal is the famous image of Tenzing holding his ice axe with flags, and with Ed Hillary just moving up with his Oxygen tanks still on.

On the front Of The Medal is written:

FIRST ASCENT OF MOUNT EVEREST

TWENTY FIFTH ANNIVERSARY

1953   1978

On the Rear of the medal is writen:

MOUNT EVEREST FIRST ASCENT

Height 20,028 Feet

First ascent completed

11:30 a.m.

May 29th, 1953

Circling the medal is coils of rope, two ice axes, and crossed flags.


The package also includes:

Two commemorative Nepal postage stamps issued by the Kingdom of Nepal. The cover has been postmarked at Namche Bazar, the post office serving Thyangboche, the last village below the base camp of the original mission. The cancellation for the stamps is May 29, 1978.

Commemoration of the 25th anniversary of conquest of Mount Everest includes Commemoration Coin & First Day Cover, plus an accounting of the two intrepid climbers adventure.

The Cover and Medal comes in it's own protective wallet which is embossed on the front 'The 25th Anniversary of the First Ascent of Mount Everest Commemorative.' All in superb condition.
