Description

This impressive coin features the face of an ape that appears on the original movie poster with a depiction of the adobe-like structures of the arid Ape City in the foreground. The design also includes The Perth Mint’s traditional ‘P’ mintmark. The coin’s obverse depicts the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the monetary denomination and the 2018 year-date.

Released in 1968, Planet of the Apes is a ground-breaking movie which, in the tradition of great science fiction, reflects conflicts and questions in our own society.

The film tells the story of an astronaut crew which crash-lands on a dystopian planet in the year 3978, about two millennia after their departure on a near light-speed voyage. In a desolate landscape, the surviving crew members, led by Taylor (played by the late Hollywood star Charlton Heston), discover a society in which apes are the dominant species with human-like intelligence and speech. Organised in a strict caste system, the apes treat humans like vermin who are hunted to be killed, enslaved or used for experiments.

A critical and commercial success, the film won an Oscar for outstanding makeup.

Each coin is presented in a clear acrylic case, allowing both sides of the coin to be displayed, and is packaged within a themed shipper. The coin is accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
