In May, during the festivities ahead of the Monaco Grand Prix, I had the privilege of representing Rosland Capital to help raise funds for the Caudwell Children’s charity. In collaboration with the Keep Fighting Foundation, we donated a one-of-a-kind, 1-kilogram gold proof coin featuring the legendary Formula 1 driver, Michael Schumacher, whose fighting spirit inspired the establishment of the Keep Fighting Foundation.

Rosland Capital’s tradition of collaboration and giving back to the community

From the beginning, when I founded it in 2008, Rosland Capital has been committed to philanthropy and giving back to the community, especially those in need. During that time, we have collaborated with several passionate charities and organizations in our effort to make a positive impact on the world around us.

Among those organizations, Rosland Capital has maintained an ongoing relationship with Michael Schumacher’s Keep Fighting Foundation, a nonprofit initiative dedicated to promoting the idea of perseverance and resilience. In collaboration with our friends at Formula 1, we have produced a range of gold and silver coins featuring portraits of Mr. Schumacher. 

In addition to honoring Mr. Schumacher’s remarkable racing career, the sale of these coins directly benefits Keep Fighting and its many charitable projects. In this case, we were able to support Caudwell Children, a UK-based charity with a vision to support and transform the lives of disabled children and their families as “a safety net for families who are unable to gain the help they need.”

Alongside Mick Schumacher, trustee of the Keep Fighting Foundation, we donated a limited edition 1-kilogram gold proof coin featuring the legendary Formula 1 driver and humanitarian, Michael Schumacher, Mick’s father. The coin sold at auction for more than 100,000 euros at the U*NITE Fashion Show hosted by Amber Lounge in Monaco. 

The proceeds were donated to Caudwell Children to support its vision of helping disabled children and their families. We at Rosland Capital are proud to continue our tradition of collaborating with the Keep Fighting Foundation to raise money in honor of Michael Schumacher and his passion for inspiring and empowering young people. 

Again, we want to thank Mick Schumacher and the Keep Fighting Foundation, Formula 1, Caudwell Children, and the many other wonderful people who helped make this event possible and successful. We look forward to continuing this tradition in the very near future.

2020: An Exciting Year for Formula 1

Anyone familiar with Rosland Capital will know that we have great admiration for our friends at Formula 1. In previous years, we’ve done a number of exclusive coin collaborations with them to commemorate some of their most important events and famous figures, like the 2018 FIA Formula 1 World Championship, the 1000th race in F1 history, and motorsport champion Sir Jackie Stewart’s lifetime of achievements and philanthropic work with Race Against Dementia.

2019 has had a number of significant moments for Formula 1, especially in recent weeks. At the end of October, I had the pleasure of attending their “Hollywood and Highland” event here in Los Angeles, which featured iconic car exhibitions and appearances by champion racers like Valtteri Bottas and Max Verstappen. Based on the turnout, it’s clear that enthusiasm for Formula 1 and the world of motorsport is alive and well, and that F1 fans are just as excited as we are at Rosland to see what’s going to come next.

I also thoroughly enjoyed following the action at the 2019 Grand Prix in Austin at the beginning of this month. It was a little surreal to see Bottas take victory only days after seeing him in person in Hollywood!

As someone with both personal and professional interest in seeing Formula 1 continue to impress audiences and promote greatness in motorsport, it’s absolutely thrilling to look ahead and see how their 2020 schedule is shaping up.

One of the events I’m most excited about is the Vietnam Grand Prix in April, which will be the first race in F1’s history to take place in Hanoi. It’s great to see that passion for motorsport has continued to spread around the world and that Formula 1 has been able to expand their reach so that new audiences may come to understand the joy and wonder of racing.
