In 2014 Guardians of the Galaxy debuted as a hit film from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, bringing a light-hearted sense of humor to the action-packed films in the series. With the 2017 release of Guardians of the Galaxy 2, a new five-coin set of silver proof coins is available to purchase online.
The major characters in the film will feature in the set, which includes ½ oz pure silver coins that include colorized images of the characters in the film. First up in the collection is the image of Star Lord, portrayed by actor Chris Pratt. Each of the coins in this collection feature ultra-high relief minting that is achieved through Smartminting technology at the Mayer Mint in Germany.
On the obverse of all Guardians of the Galaxy Silver Coins you’ll find the image of Queen Elizabeth II. Her right-profile portrait on these Cook Islands-issued coins comes from 1998 and is the fourth-generation depiction of the Queen, which was created by Ian Rank-Broadley.
The reverse of the 2017 ½ oz Cook Islands Guardians of the Galaxy Star Lord Silver Coin includes the image of Pratt as Star Lord. The main character of the film, Peter Quill is a half-alien, half-human being with a helmet to protect him from the vacuum of space and quad blasters to protect himself.
Each of the Star Lord silver coins available to purchase here today arrives inside of a collectible tin box that features actual theatrical images from the film itself, and provides the perfect display for these individual coins in your collection.
