This wonderful 2 Oz Silver coin is dedicated to the 40th Anniversary of one of the most terrifying and influential movies of all times - Alien. The coin has a Green Antique Finish quality, has an incredible design and comes in a themed egg shaped case, along with the Certificate of Authenticity.
Alien is a classic science fiction horror film known for some of the most memorable scenes in movie history. From the moment an alien larva attached itself to the face of Kane, a crew member aboard the intergalactic freighter Nostromo, audiences worldwide were fascinated by the titular organism – and horrified when its insect-like form violently erupted from Kane’s chest. A tense standoff between protagonist Ellen Ripley, played by Sigourney Weaver, and the hostile adult alien in the final moments of the film is celebrated as one of the most unnerving encounters in cinema. This eye-catching silver coin depicts both terrifying alien lifeforms featuring two innovative numismatic finishes for a unique and appealing collectable.
The reverse of the coin depicts the coloured head of an adult alien with its gaping maw exposing razor sharp teeth. Overlay is a representation of the creature in its “face hugger” larval form, the second stage of its development. On the bottom of the reverse the inscription “ALIEN” – the name of the coin. The obverse of the coin features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the inscriptions: “QUEEN ELIZABETH II” – the name of the Queen, “TUVALU” – the issuing country, “2 DOLLARS” – the face value and “2019” – the issue year and “2 OZ 9999 FINE SILVER” – the weight of the coin and the purity of the Silver.
