Melbourne, Florida - home of Holiday Builders,
has ties to the Superbowl.

The Coin Toss

We're looking forward to watching the Rams vs the Bengals in Super Bowl LVI this coming Sunday at 6:30 pm. The big game is known for lots of action, half-time entertainment, and a host of creative commercials. But did you know, there is a business in Melbourne, Florida that is instrumental in the Superbowl. The Highland Mint, located four miles east of Holiday Builders' corporate headquarters, has been making the Super Bowl flip coins for 28 years. The coin toss determines which team receives control of the ball for the first play of the game. The coin toss tradition sparked the Highland Mints' tag line, "The game doesn't start without us." Special guests who have participated in the coin toss have included Presidents Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush. 

You can purchase a replica of any Superbowl Coin online. The Highland Mint bought the exclusive license to produce the collectible coin in 1993. Since then, they have acquired licenses to create memorabilia for the MLB, NBA, NHL, Minor League Baseball, and a number of collegiate collectibles. The company also offers custom minting of precious and non-precious metals.
