BATMAN VILLAINS SILVER FOILS (2019) by the New Zealand Mint

2021-10-30T21:25:14+01:00

2019 BATMAN VILLAINS SILVER FOILS by the New Zealand Mint 2018 was a busy year for the New Zealand Mint as they continued to popularise the silver foil with a whole swathe of variously sized designs. They’ve obviously had some success with the relatively new type of coin as 2019 has seen the selection expand further. We can now add Batman Villains to the list. The mint has three formats in general use. One apes the dimensions of a banknote (5g, 150 x 70 mm), another called ‘Premium Format’ weighs 35 grams (262 x [...]

FANTASTIC WORLDS OF JULES VERNE (2018) by Czech Mint

2021-10-30T21:27:47+01:00

2018 FANTASTIC WORLDS OF JULES VERNE by Czech Mint The French novelist Jules Verne (8 February 1828 – 24 March 1905) is the second-most translated author of the last 50 years, just behind Agatha Christie and it's easy to see why. The sense of spectacle and wonder weaved in his novels has near universal appeal - appearing in countless adaptations from the early age of moving pictures through to the 21st century. As a literary world full of wonder, Jules Vernes work is a perfect subject for a coin series. The Czech Mint launched a [...]

STAR TREK MOVIE POSTER PREMIUM FOILS (2018) by the New Zealand Mint

2021-10-30T21:29:36+01:00

2018 STAR TREK MOVIE POSTER PREMIUM FOILS by the New Zealand Mint Quickly following on from their Star Wars Posters range of premium foils, the surprising addition of Star Trek to the mix was a welcome addition. Tracking who owns what licence these days has become increasingly difficult. Trek used to be the sole preserve of the Perth Mint, but then coins began to be issued by the Royal Canadian Mint as well. The New Zealand Mint has so far limited its exposure to the franchise to a selection of foils only, with the Original [...]

BATTLES THAT CHANGED HISTORY (2017-2018) by the New Zealand Mint

2021-10-30T21:30:23+01:00

2017-2018 BATTLES THAT CHANGED HISTORY by the New Zealand Mint Completely inspired by the earlier 2016 debuting series called Warriors of History, this latest range of coins from the New Zealand Mint has shifted sideways a little by portraying the battles that have made important changes to the directions of world history, often in hindsight even if not at the time, rather than the massed combatants that fought them. It's a fine idea for a companion series to the popular Warriors coins and called simply Battles That Changed History. Each one-ounce silver coin is again, [...]

JUSTICE LEAGUE MOVIE (2018) by New Zealand Mint

2021-10-30T21:31:46+01:00

2018 JUSTICE LEAGUE MOVIE by New Zealand Mint It isn’t just Star Trek and Star Wars that is getting the coin note treatment. The New Zealand Mint has released a set of six Justice League coins, each based on a character from the blockbuster DC Comics Universe movie. The characters featured are all members of the Justice League and encompass Batman, Wonder Woman, Flash, Aquaman, Cyborg and Superman. The second most expensive movie ever made, it has debuted to mixed reviews but is generally a fun romp with a mix of decent acting and poor [...]

BIBLICAL STORIES (2015-2024) by Scottsdale Mint

2022-07-30T13:06:56+01:00

2015-2024 BIBLICAL STORIES by Scottsdale Mint Launched in December 2014, Biblical Series is produced by Scottsdale Mint, an American bullion company widely liked for its unusual bullion products like the Stacker and Tombstone series. Their first large venture into numismatic coins, Biblical Series is also one of the most ambitious in modern precious metal commemoratives. Designed to be released in sets of six annual coins, there will eventually be sixty in total, spread over a decade. While some series do reach these numbers, they're not generally mapped out in advance. Following the current trend for [...]

DISNEY PRINCESSES COIN NOTES (2018) by New Zealand Mint

2021-10-30T21:35:20+01:00

2018 DISNEY PRINCESSES COIN NOTES by New Zealand Mint The New Zealand Mint seemingly has big plans for the coin note format and after the launch of Star Wars and a surprise Star Trek, they’ve returned to their venerable Disney licence for another new series. Having previously appeared on an extensive range of gold and silver coins, Disney Princesses are back for a new range of six coins. The specifications remain the same as the two sci-fi series – an expansive 150 x 70 mm in size and formed from five grams of fine silver. [...]

STAR TREK ORIGINAL SERIES (2018) by New Zealand Mint

2021-10-30T21:35:38+01:00

2018 STAR TREK ORIGINAL SERIES by New Zealand Mint With the earlier launch of a new series of Star Wars silver coin notes, the New Zealand Mint are clearly invested in this new format for 2018. What has surprised us however, is their first foray into Star Trek, usually the preserve of the Perth and Royal Canadian mints, with the debut of a whole new series. Using the relatively new coin note format for their debut with Star Trek is a clever choice as it's about the only type of coin that hasn't been available [...]

STAR WARS A NEW HOPE (2018) by New Zealand Mint

2021-10-30T21:35:57+01:00

2018 STAR WARS A NEW HOPE by New Zealand Mint Popularised by Coin Invest Trust in 2016 with their range of city-based Skyline Dollars, the banknote coin format attracted a few extra members in 2017, most notably with the New Zealand Mint bringing their Disney juggernaut to play. Now it's time for Star Wars to enter the fray with a series that could do much to expand collecting to a wider audience. There are fewer licences more likely to attract attention than Star Wars, so it’s a boost to the fledging format when the NZ [...]

WARRIORS OF HISTORY (2016-2017) by the New Zealand Mint

2021-10-30T21:37:41+01:00

2016-2017 WARRIORS OF HISTORY by the New Zealand Mint The New Zealand Mint debuted a new series in June 2016 called Warriors of History. It featured one of the most fascinating of all warrior classes, the Samurai and now, as the series builds up, it's becoming a fine look at an interesting facet of history, those that fight the wars. To date, the series has wandered through time from the 6th century BCE up to the Middle Ages and has looked across several regions of the world, although as you'd expect, Europe and the [...]
