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. 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.
Optimus Prime is the leader of the Autobots, a brave and compassionate commander determined to improve the universe. This fearless leader is depicted as a Western Star truck on transformation. Optimus Prime finds himself constantly in battle with the Decepticons in his quest to protect the inhabitants of Earth, and the universe at large.
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.
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 released no more than 5,000 of the 1oz silver proof lenticular coin design.
