In celebration of the release of Transformers: Age of Extinction, The Perth Mint is proud to present a coloured Bumblebee 2014 1oz silver proof lenticular commemorative.
Four million years ago on the planet Cybertron, emotional and perceptive robots with the ability to think and feel, known as ‘Transformers’, inhabited the planet. This highly intelligent race of ‘robots in disguise’ was divided into two opposing groups, the heroic and admirable Autobots, and the evil Decepticons.
With the ability to disguise themselves by transforming into everyday vehicles such as cars and trucks, the robots can live undetected on Earth.
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.
Bumblebee is one of Optimus Prime’s most trusted Autobots. What he lacks in size, he more than makes up for in courage, determination and bravery, proving there is certainly more than meets the eye to the Autobots’ loyal ‘little brother’.
Proof Quality 99.9% Pure Silver
Each coin is meticulously struck by The Perth Mint from 99.9% pure silver in proof quality.
Spectacular Bumblebee Reverse Design
With the use of lenticular lenses, the coin’s reverse depicts a coloured portrait of Bumblebee morphing from a robot to a yellow Chevrolet Camaro. As well as the inscription BUMBLEBEE, the design also includes The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark. The images transform from one to the other as the coin is moved.
