A pop culture fan favorite -- the $1 1 oz. Silver Ghostbusters Slimer Coin!
In 1984 in the United States, you couldn’t go anywhere without hearing the refrain “Who you gonna call?”, as the Ghostbusters movie took pop culture by storm. The story of three doctors working in the Paranormal Studies Department of Columbia University in New York, the movie was highlighted by pitch-perfect comedic turns by comics Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis and Rick Moranis—and an impressive supporting actress effort by Sigourney Weaver. One of the major scene stealers of the movie, however, wasn’t an actor at all, but a puppet that was optically grafted into the film: Slimer the Ghost. Slimer met an end as messy as his name implies, but now he lives on, featured as the second coin in the hugely popular Ghostbusters commemorative coin series. A mere 5,000 of these coins were minted, but you can get yours today from GovMint.com.
An instant conversation starter -- perfect for any eclectic collection
Struck by Australia’s Perth Mint, an international leader in the production of innovative coin designs, this Ghostbusters commemorative coin weighs in at 31.1 grams and is 40.6 mm in diameter. Though it’s struck in pristine 99.99% fine silver, its true value, arguably, is in its eye-catching design.
- CAUGHT BY A GHOST TRAP, DELIVERED TO YOUR DOOR-- Slimer the ghost was a green blob whose main purpose was to eat everything in its path and leave a trail of slime in his wake. Accordingly, the reverse of this coin features a colorized image of Slimer as he’s being pulled into a ghost trap well-known from the 1984 movie. Also inscribed on the reverse is the movie title "GHOSTBUSTERS," trademark and copyright information, plus the date "2017." The obverse of the coin displays the Ian Rank-Broadley image of Queen Elizabeth II, facing right, a fourth-generation depiction in use on many commonwealth and British coins since 1998. Also on the reverse are the inscriptions "QUEEN ELIZABETH II," "TUVALU," "1 DOLLAR," "1 OZ 9999 AG," and "2017."
- LOW MINTAGE AND UNIQUE PACKAGING-- Only 5,000 of these 2017 Silver Ghostbuster coins were minted in Brilliant Uncirculated condition, and to add to their appeal, they are presented in a black and green display case featuring the words “WHO YA GONNA CALL?” Each coin is accompanied by a numbered certificate of authenticity as well.
- CERTIFIED LEGAL TENDER -- While the 2017 Silver Ghostbusters coin is primarily appealing for its collectible value, it is also $1 legal tender Tuvalu. Tuvalu is a Polynesian island nation located in the Pacific Ocean, about midway between Hawaii and Australia.
For fans of movies, comedy, or anyone looking to add an interesting and eye-catching coin to their collection, the 2017 $1 Silver Ghostbusters Slimer coin is an unusual and memorable piece -- and it’s available now, from GovMint.com.
