Just as the Transformers character Optimus Prime can transform from a vehicle to a robot, this lenticular coin captures dual versions of the popular superhero. Just tilt the coin from side to side, and you’ll see the Autobot leader instantly switch from a robot set against a fiery background to a Robots in Disguise mode as a semi truck.
Optimus Prime is the voice of reason, compassion and courage. As the charismatic leader of the Autobots, Optimus Prime is dedicated to doing what’s right while protecting all sentient beings. In fact, his belief in freedom and justice never wavers, even as he battles the villainous Deceptacons and his arch-nemesis, Megatron. This dynamic coin comes packaged in a card that doubles as a display easel.
The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
Did You Know?
Optimus Prime is the strongest of all Autobots and a formidable fighter… but he’s also a pacifist. In vehicle mode, “Generation 1” Optimus Prime is a semi. When he changes into robot mode, the character splits into three different components: a drone named Roller; a combat deck with an ion blaster; and the familiar robot module known as the Brain Centre (seen on your coin).
