TFTOYS.CA is thrilled to be able to bring you this limited edition collector coin straight from the Royal Canadian Mint. We can't say it any better, so here's the information on this piece straight from the RCM
OPTIMUS PRIME, MEGATRON, BUMBLEBEE, STARSCREAM, JAZZ and more—they’re the TRANSFORMERS, an alien race of mechanical beings that can instantly change into alternate forms. These ROBOTS IN DISGUISE crash-landed on Earth millions of years ago, after their home planet of CYBERTRON had been devastated by war. Re-animated in a modern world, the two warring factions continue to clash, with the heroic AUTOBOTS fighting for freedom and justice against the evil DECEPTICONS.
Our salute to TRANSFORMERS—and the homegrown talent behind the scenes—features the legendary hero and champion of peace, OPTIMUS PRIME. Through ultra high relief engraving, the face of the AUTOBOTS pushes out from the coin’s surface, where the character’s name is inscribed in CYBERTRONIAN lettering. We’ve also added a special feature for the fans: photo-luminescent technology to ensure the colourful eyes will glow.
A stunning gift for a TRANSFORMERS fan! A pure silver OPTIMUS PRIME coin! Order today!
- A 3-D LIKE VIEW! OPTIMUS PRIME practically pops out of the coin! The effect is made possible by ultra-high relief engraving, which gives the engraving a more pushed-out appearance.
- MORE THAN MEETS THE EYE! Paint technology re-creates the character’s appearance in the 1980s, but glow paint brings the eyes to life.
- INCLUDES THE ALPHABET OF CYBERTRON! The character's name (OPTIMUS PRIME) is engraved in CYBERTRONIAN lettering—a nod to the character’s fictional home planet.
- A SALUTE TO THE TOYS THAT LAUNCHED SEVERAL ANIMATED SERIES! Includes those with a behind-the-scenes Canadian connection.
- INCLUDES SERIALIZED CERTIFICATE! The Royal Canadian Mint certifies all of its collector coins.
- 99.99% PURE SILVER COIN! NO GST/HST!
Your coin features the engraved TRANSFORMERS insignia of the AUTOBOTS on both sides of the portrait head of OPTIMUS PRIME. The legendary leader and champion of peace appears to emerge from the coin’s surface thanks to ultra high relief engraving. The deep colours are in keeping with the original toys and animated series from the 1980s, while glow paint hints at optic weaponry. The reverse includes the character’s name (OPTIMUS PRIME) engraved in CYBERTRONIAN lettering, the word “CANADA” and the face value, “25 DOLLARS”. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
- The TRANSFORMERS were first introduced to Canadians in 1984 with the launch of HASBRO’s original toy line. It was a multimedia franchise, with comic book tie-ins, an animated series, merchandising and a feature film.
- Canadian actor Peter Cullen was the voice of both OPTIMUS PRIME and IRONHIDE in the original television series. The Canadian connection doesn’t end there: several other incarnations were produced in Canada and/or featured Canadian animators and voice actors.
Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded clamshell with a black beauty box.
These are limited to just 3,500 pieces worldwide and best of all, since it is a registered precious metal, there is no sales tax!
