Thirty years after the box office success of Back to the Future, The Perth Mint is excited to present the Back to the Future 2015 1oz Silver Proof Coin.
Back to the Future is an American science fiction comedy film released in July 1985 and starring Michael J. Fox as Marty McFly, a high school student who accidentally travels 30 years into the past to 1955, jeopardising his own future existence.
Each coin is struck from 1oz of 99.9% pure silver in proof quality.
The reverse of the coin features an image of the DeLorean DMC-12 sports car from Back to the Future surrounded by lightning bolts, with the Hill Valley Courthouse in the background. The inscription BACK TO THE FUTURE, and the coin’s weight and fineness also appear in the design.
Issued as legal tender under the authority of the Government of Tuvalu, the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the monetary denomination, and the 2015 year-date, are shown on the coin’s obverse.
The Perth Mint will release no more than 7,500 of the Back to the Future 2015 1oz Silver Proof Coin.
Each coin is presented in a replica model car designed to look like a DeLorean DMC-12 sports car. The hood of the car pops up to reveal the coin. The car is packaged within an illustrated shipper and is accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
