Thirty years after the box office success of Back to the Future, The Perth Mint is excited to present the Back to the Future – Hoverboard 2015 2oz Silver Coin.
Back to the Future is an American science fiction comedy trilogy (1985, 1989 and 1990), starring Michael J. Fox as Marty McFly, a high school student who accidentally travels 30 years into the past to 1955, jeopardising his own future existence.
The hoverboard – a skateboard without wheels that hovers over the ground – makes its debut in the second film of the trilogy. Marty McFly travels to his future in 2015 and hovers through the air when chased by teen rogue Griff Tannen and his gang.
REVERSE: The reverse of the coin features an image of Marty McFly’s hoverboard as it appeared in Back to the Future II. The inscription HOVERBOARD also appears in the design.
OBVERSE: Issued as legal tender under the authority of the Government of Tuvalu, the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the monetary denomination, and the 2015 year-date are shown on the coin’s obverse.
PRESENTATION: Designed to look like Marty McFly’s hoverboard from Back to the Future II, each coin is presented in a plastic capsule. The coin appears to be suspended and hovering within the case. This exciting product is packaged within an illustrated shipper and is accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
