OPTIMUS PRIME, MEGATRON, BUMBLEBEE, STARSCREAM, JAZZ and more—they’re the TRANSFORMERS, an alien race of mechanical beings that can instantly change into alternate forms. These ROBOTS IN DISGUISE crash-landed on Earth millions of years ago, after their home planet of CYBERTRON had been devastated by war. Re-animated in a modern world, the two warring factions continue to clash, with the heroic AUTOBOTS fighting for freedom and justice against the evil DECEPTICONS. A salute to TRANSFORMERS—and the homegrown talent behind the scenes—features the legendary hero and champion of peace, OPTIMUS PRIME. Through ultra high relief engraving, the face of the AUTOBOTS pushes out from the coin’s surface, where the character’s name is inscribed in CYBERTRONIAN lettering. We’ve also added a special feature for the fans: photo-luminescent technology to ensure the colourful eyes will glow.
Your coin features the engraved TRANSFORMERS insignia of the AUTOBOTS on both sides of the portrait head of OPTIMUS PRIME. The legendary leader and champion of peace appears to emerge from the coin’s surface thanks to ultra high relief engraving. The deep colours are in keeping with the original toys and animated series from the 1980s, while glow paint hints at optic weaponry. The reverse includes the character’s name (OPTIMUS PRIME) engraved in CYBERTRONIAN lettering, the word “CANADA” and the face value, “25 DOLLARS”. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
