2014 Transformers 4 Bumblebee 1oz Silver Lenticular Coin

Four million years ago on the planet Cybertron, emotional and perceptive robots with the ability to think and feel, known as ‘Transformers’, inhabited the planet.

This highly intelligent race of ‘robots in disguise’ was divided into two opposing groups, the heroic and admirable Autobots, and the evil Decepticons.

Availability: Sold Out

Code: 599
 
 
 

With the ability to disguise themselves by transforming into everyday vehicles such as cars and trucks, the robots can take on many different forms.

In 2014, the fourth instalment of the hit Transformers movie franchise, Transformers: Age of Extinction, will be released. The Perth Mint has issued three new lenticular commemoratives portraying the characters of Optimus Prime, Bumblebee and Lockdown.

As a close ally of the humans, Bumblebee was sent to Earth to protect Sam Witwicky in Transformers, becoming his first car. In this movie he transformed from the 1977 Camaro to the newer, sexier, 2009 Chevrolet Camaro after Sam’s girlfriend Mikaela mocked the vintage model. Bumblebee is one of Optimus Prime’s most trusted Autobots. What he lacks in size, he more than makes up for in courage, determination and bravery, proving there is certainly more than meets the eye to the Autobots loyal ‘little brother’.

Licensed by Hasbro, each coin is struck from 1oz of 99.9% pure silver in proof quality, featuring a lenticular lens that depicts the character morphing from a robot into its vehicle disguise and issued as legal tender under the authority of the Government of Tuvalu.

The Perth Mint will release no more than 5,000 of each 1oz silver proof lenticular coin design.

The coin’s reverse depicts a coloured portrait of the Transformers Bumblebee morphing from a robot to a yellow Chevrolet Camaro. As well as the inscription BUMBLEBEE and TRANSFORMERS, the design also includes the coin’s weight and fineness, and The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark.

Each coin’s obverse depicts the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II surrounded by a chequered border, the monetary denomination, and the 2014 year-date.

Each coin is housed in an innovative cube shaped presentation case which, with the press of a button, flips the lid open revealing the coin surrounded by light. This presentation box comes in a spectacularly illustrated shipper, accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
