With an incredibly detailed color design of Optimus Prime on the reverse, the Perth Mint has issued a Transformers 1oz Silver coin to coincide with the release of the blockbuster movie. A Megatron coin is also available.
Owing its origin to a toy series started by Hasbro in the 80's, the Transformers have grown into a powerhouse franchise the world over. The first live-action movie came out in 2007 and incorporated computer generated images of the transforming robots.
Box office revenues were of the record variety, and plans for a sequel were soon initiated. The long-awaited follow-up premiered this summer and once again, records are being blown away.
Kids who grew up on the series, and those who are into action movies, are flocking in droves to see the heroic leader of the Autobots, Optimus Prime, defend Earth from the Deceptacons, led by Megatron.
Both the Optimus Prime coin and the Megatron coin have a maximum mintage of 5,000. Check into getting yours now, before they sell-out. They would make great gifts for the Holidays or a birthday! What teenage boy would not want one?
Oh, and did I mention they contain 1 oz of .999 pure silver.
