Description

In 2013, the USTA and The MeiGray Group introduced a pure silver Flip Coin to be used on court by each chair referee for the pre-match coin flip designating the player who serves first at each Quarterfinals, Semifinals and Finals match in Men’s Singles, Women’s Singles, Men’s Doubles, Women’s Doubles and Mixed Doubles.  They continued this process in 2014 & 2015 but all doubles draws only used special coins for the Finals.

These uniquely minted coins were limited to one per match. Each coin was individually serial numbered, and authenticated on court by a USTA-MeiGray authenticator who received the coin from the chair referee on court immediately after the flip was completed between the players.

Offered here is the actual coin flipped prior to the WOMEN’S SINGLES QUARTERFINALS match featuring FLAVIA PENNETTA & PETRA KVITOVA on September 9, 2015 on Arthur Ashe Stadium court. The one troy ounce .999 silver coin features a “heads” side with the US Open logo and a “tails” side showing two tennis rackets and “2015 US Open Tennis Championships”. The coin is numbered 0010 on the edge. The coin is accompanied by a full Letter of Authenticity from USTA-Meigray as well as documentation from The Highland Mint.

Pennetta won the match 4-6, 6-4, 6-2.  Pennetta would go on to win the 2015 US Open for her first ever major title.
