Released in 1972 and directed by Francis Ford Coppola, The Godfather is probably one of the most beloved and highly regarded movies in the history of film.
Based on Mario Puzo’s novel of the same name, it tells the story of a New York Mafia crime family between the years 1945-1955.
Primarily about the transformation of the youngest son of Mafia Don, Vito Corleone, brilliantly played by Marlon Brando, from a quiet outsider into the ruthless heir to the family.
The descent of Michael into ruthlessness, also brilliantly played, this time by Al Pacino, and his simultaneous rise in the ranks to become the new Don, give this film an edge not seen previously, and rarely since. With a cast including such greats as James Caan, Robert Duvall and Diane Keaton, it’s a movie that rivets the attention from start to finish.
Struck by the Scottsdale Mint from 1oz of 99.9% pure silver in proof quality, each coin is issued as legal tender under the authority of Niue Island. No more than 5,000 of the 2015 $2 The Godfather 1oz Silver Proof Two Coin Set will be released.
The reverse of the first coin displays a high resolution print of Marlon Brando in the classic Godfather pose. The design includes the Godfather® logo in the field of the coin.
The reverse of the second coin features a unique 3D optical illusion. When viewed at an angle from the left, the Godfather® logo appears to be on a plain background. As the coin is rotated around to the right side, bullet holes appear in the field of the coin. The iconic Paramount logo is also included.
The coins are housed in a high-gloss black wooden display case; the fine details and exquisite finish of the box give a classic elegance to the set. The set includes an individually numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
