Godzilla silver coin, 1 ounce of silver from the New Zealand Mint.
Godzilla is one of the most representative film myths of the Japanese film industry. Born in 1954 as a metaphor for the fear of Japanese society in the aftermath of the Hiroshima nuclear bomb, it has since starred in more than 35 films in its almost 60-year history.
In 2021 it returned to the box office with the other giant animal Kong, with whom it has fought one of the most famous battles in cinema.
The animal appears on the cross of the coin: looking much more similar to the reptile than in other depictions, we see him in attack position with his two hands in the air ready to strike. His design is spectacularly detailed, to the point that all the scales and the remains of the dead skin that is about to molt are perfectly visible. The same goes for the fins on his back - it's all in great detail!
Below the character, which is on a flat background, is the name of the film in the same font as on the cinema poster.
The face is also very striking. On a flat background and surrounded by the coin's specifications and Niue's coat of arms are the figures of Kong and Godzilla, both fighting in an image that will go down in film history.
The Godzilla coin was minted in 2021 with 1 ounce of 99.999% pure silver by the New Zealand Mint, has a diameter of 39.00 millimetres and a thickness of 2.98 millimetres. Get it at the best price and show off your favourite movie with your coin!
