The Perth Mint celebrates 50 years of Planet of the Apes with the release of two limited edition official movie coins, under the licence of Twentieth Century Fox Film Corporation.
Inspired by French novelist Pierre Boulle’s La Planète des Singes, the original Planet of the Apes was released in 1968. With five cult classics, one remake and three subsequent reboot blockbusters, the long running franchise probed controversies and questions relating to our own society.
The highly influential film helped establish sci-fi as a mainstream movie genre, attracting millions of fans across generations.
