Product Description

Robots in disguise - the ultimate film / numismatic crossover collectible!
Sold out at the Mint!If you were a kid in the 1980s or 90s, chances are you watched the animated show Transformers on television. The courageous Autobots, under their heroic leader Optimus Prime, battle the evil Decepticons, led by the nefarious Megatron. The wow factor was certainly high - each of the robots was able to transform into a cool vehicle. You remember the catchy theme,

Megatron, nefarious leader of the evil Decepticon robots, is one scary dude!    Transformers, more than meets the eye!
    Transformers, robots in disguise!

There was a legion of toys released to capitalize on the success of the program. Many of these toys are themselves "transformers", able to change from vehicle to robot and back, just like the characters. Optimus Prime transforms into a tractor trailer truck (you know, a big rig, 18 wheeler, or semi), while Megatron transforms into a heavily armed, if malevolent, tank!

Time travel forward (like any good sci-fi action hero) to 2009, and chances are very good that you saw the summer's biggest blockbuster, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, the sequel to 2007's Transformers. To date, Revenge of the Fallen has grossed nearly $900 million dollars world wide, making it one of the top ten grossing films of all time!

Please see the presentation lower on this page for more information about Tuvalu and its association with Australia.

Color Note
Although the mint supplied images may make it appear the the Megatron silver proof is not colorized, in fact the coin is in full color. It just so happens that (appropriately enough) the evil Megatron is depicted mostly in shades of charcoal and black.

Investment Note
Unlike most modern movie collectibles, the two Transformers silver proofs (Megatron and Optimus Prime) have a strictly limited mintage of only 5,000 each. Considering that they come from one of the most successful Hollywood franchises of all time, with mass worldwide, popular appeal, with crossover to the highly sought-after film collecting community, we like the prospects for future appreciation.

The Island Nation of Tuvalu
Tuvalu, formerly known as the Ellice Islands, is a Polynesian island nation located in the Pacific Ocean midway between Hawaii and Australia. Its nearest neighbors are Kiribati, Samoa and Fiji. It is comprised of four reef islands and five true atolls. Its population of 11,992 makes it the third-least populated independent country in the world, with only Vatican City and Nauru having fewer inhabitants. It is also the second-smallest member by population of the United Nations. In terms of physical land size, at just 10 square miles Tuvalu is the fourth smallest country in the world, larger only than the Vatican City, Monaco and Nauru.

The first inhabitants of Tuvalu were Polynesian people, who arrived about 3000 years go. The islands came under Great Britain's sphere of influence in the late 19th century. The Ellice Islands were administered by Britain as part of a protectorate from 1892 to 1916 and as part of the Gilbert and Ellice Islands Colony from 1916 to 1974. In 1974 the Ellice Islanders voted for separate British dependency status as Tuvalu, separating from the Gilbert Islands which became Kiribati upon independence. Tuvalu became fully independent within The Commonwealth in 1978. with Queen Elizabeth II as titular head of state.

Because Tuvalu has few natural resources it has been dependent in recent years upon aid from larger, more developed nations, including Australia, New Zealand and the United States. The Perth Mint of Australia is officially commissioned by the government of Tuvalu to produce legal tender coinage for the island nation.
