In 1984 Dr. Ray Stantz, Dr. Peter Venkman, and Dr. Egon Spengler took up shop in an abandoned firehouse in New York City to launch a daring enterprise. What began as an experiment in connecting with other dimensions eventually unleashed havoc on Manhattan in the form of ghosts and ghouls.
Ghostbusters was a hit in its day, and remains a cult classic in the 21st century. The film’s popularity spurred the release of a sequel in 1989 entitled Ghostbusters II. This new 2017 1 oz Tuvalu Ghostbusters Crew Silver Coin features the original trio in their ghostbusting uniforms with a green-tinged sky in the background and the company logo.
On the obverse of each Ghostbusters Crew Coin you’ll find the image of Queen Elizabeth II. Captured in right-profile relief, this image was created by Ian Rank-Broadley in 1998 as the fourth-generation depiction of Her Majesty.
The reverse of the 2017 1 oz Tuvalu Ghostbusters Crew Silver Coin includes a colorized finish on the images of all three scientists from the original crew, as well as the aforementioned green sky in the background and the red-and-white colorization of the logo: a ghost with a red line through it. The skyline of New York City is featured in brilliant silver finish.
Each one of these 2017 1 oz Tuvalu Ghostbusters Crew Silver Coins arrives inside a beautiful presentation case with black and green colorization, a themed shipper, and the words “Who Ya Gonna Call?” on it. A numbered Certificate of Authenticity is also included. Future releases in this series include an upcoming Slimer and Stay Puft coin.
These coins are produced by the Perth Mint, Australia’s oldest minting facility and a state-owned entity of the government of Western Australia. All coins include images that are trademarked by and copyright of Columbia Pictures Industries Inc.
