Product Description

Enter the virtual reality world of OASIS with Helen Harris' in-game avatar, Aech, in the blockbuster motion picture film from Steven Spielberg, Ready Player One, captured perfectly in full color retro 80's style on this exciting, one troy ounce pure silver proof dollar!

From filmmaker Steven Spielberg comes the science fiction action adventure Ready Player One, based on sci-fi geek author Ernest Cline’s bestseller of the same name, which has become a worldwide phenomenon. These two exciting new silver dollar coins feature Aech and Daito and Sho, avatars adopted by some of the movie’s main characters and strongest OASIS contestants.

Spielberg's hit film is set in the year 2045, with the world on the brink of chaos and collapse. But people have found salvation in the OASIS, an expansive virtual reality universe created by the brilliant and eccentric James Halliday (played by actor Mark Rylance). When Halliday dies, he leaves his immense fortune to the first person to find a digital Easter egg he has hidden somewhere in the OASIS, sparking a contest that grips the entire world, including Parzival and Artemis.

Those who decide to join the contest, called "gunters" (or Easter egg hunters), are hurled into a breakneck, reality-bending treasure hunt through a fantastical universe of mystery, danger and discovery! Wade/Parzival bands together with Samantha/Art3mis – a tough, fearless, and confident Gunter who is a legend within the Oasis – along with his best friend Aech, a fellow Gunter and warrior with unmatched mechanical skills, and Daito and Sho, an inseparable duo fashioned after samurai warriors and ninjas. Together, they are the “High Five.”

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.
