We are proud to bring you this low-mintage (only 5,000!) proof silver dollar struck by the Perth Mint in color. Ingeniously packaged like a the collectible Transformers action figures, the Transformers coins are officially authorized by Hasbro! With the massive appeal of the films and the massive crossover potential with the world of film collectibles, the odds for future appreciation are certainly great! Please see the Investment Note further on in this presentation.
Although the mint supplied images may make it appear the the Megatron silver proof is not colorized, in fact the coin is in full color. It just so happens that (appropriately enough) the evil Megatron is depicted mostly in shades of charcoal and black.
Unlike most modern movie collectibles, the two Transformers silver proofs (Megatron and Optimus Prime) have a strictly limited mintage of only 5,000 each. Considering that they come from one of the most successful Hollywood franchises of all time, with mass worldwide, popular appeal, with crossover to the highly sought-after film collecting community, we like the prospects for future appreciation.
The Perth Mint of Australia employs its own proprietary colorization technology, in which the color is actually sealed on the coin. The vibrant hues and precise execution of the technology create a stunning, full-color portrait on each coin.
Megatron (depicted in full color), ruthless leader of the Decepticons, strikes a menacing pose above the Decepticons logo. The legend TRANSFORMERS denotes the theme. The Perth Mint's "P" mint mark also appears along the edge, at the 12:00 position.
