2018 Planet Of The Apes 50th Anniversary 1oz Silver Proof Coin

Direct Coins is excited to offer this impressive Planet of the Apes 50th anniversary coin.

Released in 1968, Planet of the Apes is a ground-breaking movie which, in the tradition of great science fiction, reflects conflicts and questions in our own society.


Code: 1557

The film tells the story of an astronaut crew which crash-lands on a dystopian planet in the year 3978, about two millennia after their departure on a near light-speed voyage. In a desolate landscape, the surviving crew members, led by Taylor (played by the late Hollywood star Charlton Heston), discover a society in which apes are the dominant species with human-like intelligence and speech. Organised in a strict caste system, the apes treat humans like vermin who are hunted to be killed, enslaved or used for experiments.

A critical and commercial success, the film won an Oscar for outstanding makeup.

The coin features the face of an ape that appears on the original movie poster with a depiction of the adobe-like structures of the arid Ape City in the foreground. The design also includes The Perth Mint’s traditional ‘P’ mintmark. The coin’s obverse depicts the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the monetary denomination and the 2018 year-date.

Struck by The Perth Mint from 1oz of 99.99% pure silver, this coin has a limited mintage of 5,000 coins worldwide.

Each coin is presented in a clear acrylic case, allowing both sides of the coin to be displayed, and is packaged within a themed shipper. The coin is accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
