Rapidly ramping up box-office numbers so great it looks likely to take the all-time number one position, James Cameron's Avatar sequel, 'The Way of Water' is currently wowing cinema audiences with its cutting-edge special effects. The original Avatar movie was quite unusual. It was a fantastic success in box-office terms, but left no lasting impression on popular culture, as [...]

Bullion round-up 13: Mint of Gdańsk enters the bullion market. Pobjoy, Germania, and the South African Mint expand choice. The thirteenth bullion coin round-up, and our first of 2023, has a fine selection, a mix of old favourites and new arrivals. The big surprise is the Mint of Gdańsk dipping its toes into the bullion waters [...]

By |2023-01-11T00:07:18+00:00January 10th, 2023|Categories: Quicklooks, Coloured, Movies & TV, Silver, Niue Island, NZ Mint|

Better late than never, as they say, the December Chibi releases are now in our extensive guide to the series, bringing it up to over 100 issues so far. As well as Emperor Palpatine from Star Wars, and Black Adam from the DC Comics movie, there were a couple of Disney Frozen coins - Elsa and Anna, No [...]

Mickey & Minnie Valentines silver bullion coin (2023 New Zealand Mint)

By |2023-01-05T13:39:14+00:00January 5th, 2023|Categories: Quicklooks, Bullion, Movies & TV, Silver, Niue Island, NZ Mint|

It's nice and early in the new year to see the first in what will no doubt be a torrent of bullion designs from the New Zealand Mint, utilising their extensive media franchises. Disney is the first franchise to get a release, and it's one of their holiday/event issues. Mickey Mouse and Minnie are the perpetual couple in [...]

The Simpsons – Mini Marge 1oz silver coin (2022 Perth Mint)

By |2022-11-30T17:34:07+00:00November 30th, 2022|Categories: Quicklooks, Movies & TV, Silver, Perth Mint, Tuvalu|

With the New Zealand Mint having clearly demonstrated that the Japanese 'Super-deformed' art style resonates with coin collectors, it didn't take long for others to join the caravan. One of the latest is the Perth Mint, who kicked off their efforts with an old coin favourite, The Simpsons. While Bart was the first subject, they soon added Homer, and [...]

The Mandalorian – Grogu Dinner silver bullion coin (2022 New Zealand Mint)

By |2022-11-22T18:09:42+00:00November 22nd, 2022|Categories: Quicklooks, Bullion, Movies & TV, Silver, Niue Island, NZ Mint|

Want to guarantee a Star Wars coin sells out? Stick Grogu, Baby Yoda as it's erroneously known, on the face. The little, supporting CGI creature was the smash-hit of the massively popular The Mandalorian, Star Wars TV series. This time he's depicted eating a possibly not quite dead, squid-like soup in a comical scene, sure to please fans [...]

Scrooge McDuck silver bullion coin (2022 New Zealand Mint)

By |2022-11-22T15:27:20+00:00November 22nd, 2022|Categories: Quicklooks, Bullion, Movies & TV, Silver, Niue Island, NZ Mint|

Is there are more appropriate subject for a Disney bullion coin than Scrooge McDuck? We don't think so, so the appearance of the mean, rich duck on a silver bullion coin is entirely proper. Celebrating his 75th anniversary, Scrooge McDuck is seen in a typical pose, wearing a top hat, carrying a cane, and dripping with wealth. None [...]

DC Comics – Wonder Woman Logo silver coin (2022 MTB-PAMP)

By |2022-11-18T20:37:54+00:00November 18th, 2022|Categories: Quicklooks, Coloured, Movies & TV, Silver, Cook Islands, PAMP|

It's hard to keep track of what popular culture franchise is owned by what mint, especially when they began to be fragmented by region, but nevertheless, they continue to diversify. MTB-PAMP has issued several coins for the DC Comics Universe, and the latest is a neat Wonder Woman logo coin, of one-ounce silver in weight. This isn't the [...]

Chibi Data & Reva silver coins (2022 New Zealand Mint)

By |2022-11-09T20:22:31+00:00November 9th, 2022|Categories: Quicklooks, History, Coloured, Movies & TV, Silver, Niue Island, NZ Mint|

It's been a while since we did a Quicklook at new Chibi coins, as you're no doubt interested in more variety, and I find it equally difficult to think of new things to say. However, the series remains popular enough to warrant four new releases every month, and so some coverage is certainly justified. This month is off [...]

By |2022-11-02T21:55:02+00:00November 2nd, 2022|Categories: Coloured, Movies & TV, Gold, Medallion, Silver, Niue Island, NZ Mint|

Catching up with the New Zealand Mint's popular culture coin releases from October An overdue look at the New Zealand Mint's copious popular-culture output is what we have here, and it's another good mix of the many franchises they have in their repertoire. Including such giants as Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, and Harry Potter, [...]
