Harry Potter seems to be everywhere at the moment, with MDM, the Monnaie de Paris, the Crown Mint. and the New Zealand Mint all issuing coins for the franchise. Just trying to keep up with who has the rights to what is frustrating enough, but it must annoy some of the mints as well, we’d imagine. The latest is a shaped one-ounce silver piece from the NZ Mint, who probably have more experience with the genre than anyone.
The first in this ‘Hogwarts House Crests’ Collection was a coin that depicted all four of the main houses on a single shield, and this second issue is likely the first of four giving each house its own coin. House Gryffindor’s emblem is shown filling the centre of the reverse face. There isn’t much more to it than that. Potter fans will love it, although I personally preferred the look of the silver foils the NZ Mint did a couple of years ago, even though I’m no fan of Potter in general.
Still, a good one for the fans and it’s as well presented as always. A mintage of 5,000 pieces, with availability from today.
