Product Details


In anticipation of the upcoming release of Transformers: Age of Extinction, Perth Mint has released the Coloured Lenticular Bumblebee 2014 Silver Proof Coin. This beautiful coin features a coloured portrait of one of the most beloved Autobots, Bumblebee that shows him transforming from a Yellow Chevrolet Camaro into an Autobot. With the use of lenticular lenses, not a hologram, Bumblebee morphs as the coin moves.

Bumblebee is one of the Autobot's most trusted lieutenants and in the original cartoon series released in 1984 he transformed into a yellow Volkswagen Beetle and now, thirty years, later this fan-favourite is back for the fourth installment of this very popular franchise. What he lacks in size he makes up for in daring, speed and loyalty. This favourite "little brother" is one of the most iconic Transformers of both the original cartoon and modern franchise.

The obverse features the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Queen Elizabeth II and the words "Elizabeth II Tuvalu 1 Dollar 2014" and the artist's initials.

The reverse features a beautifully rendered depiction of Bumblebee by artist Jennifer McKenna as seen in the modern franchise and portrays both the Autobot and vehicle form in amazing detail. The background features the easily recognizable Autobot symbol and the futuristic patterns (in this case partial honeycombs) that Transformers were known for in the early cartoon releases. The lenticular design, unlike holograms, is actually printed onto special lenses and doesn't need special lighting to see their effect.

This beautiful proof coin is truly "more than meets the eye", and is made with 1 ozt of 999 pure silver and features a serialized certificate. It is official legal tender of Tuvalu (non-circulation). With a limited worldwide mintage of only 5,000 this collectible is sure to go fast.

Each coin comes in a novel display box shaped like the Cube from the Transformers franchise movies. The box transforms or opens from the cube to reveal the collectible coin.
