The Perth Mint is proud to present the Transformers: Age of Extinction 2014 1oz Silver Proof Lenticular Coins. Each commemorative portrays an iconic Transformers character – Optimus Prime, Bumblebee or Lockdown.
Optimus Prime is the leader of the Autobots, a brave and compassionate commander determined to improve the universe. Optimus Prime finds himself constantly in battle with the Decepticons in his quest to protect the inhabitants of Earth, and the universe at large. In Transformers: Age of Extinction this fearless leader is depicted as a semi-truck on transformation.
Bumblebee was the second character to ever appear on-screen in the original animated series, The Transformers, when it debuted in 1984. Back then, Bumblebee transformed into a yellow Volkswagen Beetle. Thirty years on, fan-favourite Bumblebee is back for the fourth instalment of the popular Transformers movie franchise. In Transformers: Age of Extinction, Bumblebee is depicted as a yellow Chevrolet Camaro on transformation.
Lockdown is a rogue Transformers Decepticon, and ruthless bounty hunter who will stop at nothing to bring in his bounty. With a head that can change into a gun, he is a truly dangerous killer. In the original animated series, The Transformers, he was an Autobot CyberNinja who trained under Yoketron, before being banished for betraying him. Lockdown later returned to kill Yoketron as his first job as a bounty hunter. In Transformers: Age of Extinction, Lockdown is back with a vengeance, and is depicted as a Lockdown Supercar on conversion.
Each coin is meticulously struck by The Perth Mint from 99.9% pure silver in proof quality.
With the use of lenticular lenses, each coin’s reverse depicts a coloured portrait of either Optimus Prime, Bumblebee or Lockdown morphing from a robot to a semi-truck, yellow Chevrolet Camaro or Lockdown Supercar respectively, as they appear in the movie Transformers: Age of Extinction. Each coin is bordered by the inscription OPTIMUS PRIME, BUMBLEBEE or LOCKDOWN and includes The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark. The character images transform from one to the other as the coin is moved.

Issued a legal tender under the authority of the Government of Tuvalu, each coin’s obverse depicts the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II surrounded by a chequered border, the monetary denomination, and the 2014 year-date.
