MINTS DESCRIPTION: Directed by Steven Spielbirg, and based on Ernest Cline’s bestseller of the same name, “Ready Player One” is set in 2045, with the world on the brink of chaos and collapse. But the people have found salvation in the Oasis, an expansive virtual reality universe created by the brilliant and eccentric James Halliday. When Halliday dies, he leaves his immense fortune to the first person to find a digital Easter egg he has hidden somewhere in the Oasis, sparking a contest that grips the entire world. Those who decide to join the contest are hurled into a breakneck, reality-bending treasure hunt through a fantastical universe of mystery, discovery and danger.
These exciting new coins feature Parzival and Art3mis, avatars adopted by two of the movie’s main characters and strongest Oasis contestants – Wade Watts and Samantha Evelyn Cook.
Wade/Parzival bands together with Samantha/Art3mis – a tough, fearless, and confident Gunter who is a legend within the Oasis – along with his best friend Aech, a fellow Gunter and warrior with unmatched mechanical skills, and Daito and Sho, an inseparable duo fashioned after samurai warriors and ninjas. Together, they are the “High Five.”
