SPACE INVADERS REVIEW - 40th Anniversary - 1 Oz Silver Coin - Niue 2018

Hi Dears, it’s Chiara, and welcome or welcome back to Power Coin’s blog!
I’m a little NERD, I’m not sure that you already know it, and when I saw the coin that I’m going to show to you I was like “OH MY GOOOD”!
This incredible 1 Oz Silver coin is dedicated to the 40th Anniversary of one of the most famous arcade games of all times: Space Invaders.

Space Invaders Case

What is Space Invaders?

Space Invaders is one of the earliest shooting games and the goal was to defeat waves of aliens with a laser cannon to earn as many points as possible.
When first released, Space Invaders was very successful. The game has inspired other video games, has been released on numerous platforms and led to several sequels.

This coin features lenticular printing to allow the aliens to move as the coin is rotated and comes in a specially designed box which replicates the original arcade cabinet.

The Reverse

The reverse of the coin shows the colored aliens that move as the coin is rotated at different angles, just like in the actual game!
On the top of the reverse, the inscription: “SPACE INVADERS” – the name of the coin and of the game.
On the bottom part, the inscriptions: “1 oz 999 FINE SILVER” – the weight of the coin and the purity of the Silver and “© TAITO CORP.1978, 2018” – the name of the production company.

The Obverse

The obverse of the coin features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, and the inscriptions: “ELIZABETH II” – the name of the Queen, “NIUE” – the issue country, “TWO DOLLARS” – the face value and “2018” - the issue year.

This coin is really unmissable dears, I mean, a Space Invaders-themed silver coin!
Should I say anything else? I guess not!

Stay tuned and remember: Collect, Invest, Enjoy!
