The core format will be the clean silver, which has a mintage of 15,000 pieces and is supplied encapsulated. That coin is also available in colour, which is very nicely done, and there will be 5,000 of those. Of that 5,000 coins, 20% of them will come mounted to a colourful blistercard, much like the Perth Mint did with their Stock Horse coins, for example. You can see the artwork for that at the top of this post. Lastly, there’s a clean gold coin that comes encapsulated, but with a C.O.A., and that tops out at just 100 units.
This is the first in a series, and on this evidence, it looks like it will be a fine one. We know the videogame genre isn’t for everyone, but you underestimate its popularity at your peril, and it’s hard to argue against a coin that looks this neat – a real tribute to a popular culture classic. The franchise has some visually amazing characters in it, so future releases hold a lot of potential. An LPM release, it’s available to order from later today.
