2019 Tuvalu 2 oz Silver 40th Anniversary Alien AntiquedPRODUCT ID: 16413
Alien kick-started a compelling series of science fiction horror features, where the 1979 release confronted the worst imaginable scenario in space - being stalked and slain by an aggressive and terrifying extra-terrestrial.
Gripping and petrifying audiences worldwide, the groundbreaking movie ratcheted up the tension when the larval alien burst in shocking fashion from the chest of Kane, a crew member aboard the intergalactic freighter Nostromo. The groundbreaking 1979 release was a box office hit, earning $80 million in revenues in the US and $105 million worldwide. It also initiated a compelling series of films featuring the iconic titular creature. Directed by Ridley Scott and starring Sigourney Weaver, Alien won a raft of honors, including an Academy Award (Oscar) for Visual Effects. Celebrating its significant impact on the genre and enduring appeal over four decades, this coin portrays the terrifying creature in its skeletal larvae form and disturbingly elongated adult visage.
- Maximum mintage of only 1,500 coins!
- Contains 2 oz of .9999 fine Silver.
- The coin is housed in a colored egg-shaped case inspired by the oval pods in which alien life first appeared in the presence of the Nostromo landing party. The case opens to reveal four pink petal-shaped membranes as per the alien egg’s hatching process. The coin is displayed in an acrylic case with a cracked appearance which rises as the egg opens. Packaged in a themed shipper, the coin is accompanied by a numbered certificate of authenticity.
- Obverse: Displays the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the 2019 year-date, and the monetary denomination.
- Reverse: The reverse design depicts the colored head of an adult alien with its gaping maw exposing razor sharp teeth. Overlayed is a representation of the creature in its “face hugger” larval form, the second stage of its development.
- Combining two celebrated numismatic finishes, the coin is rendered in vivid color with a black background, gray “face hugger” and sickly green alien, while also boasting an antiqued finish. This handcrafted finish adds individual abrasions to the coin’s surface for enhanced fine detail and an artifact-like appearance.
