2018 $1 Planet of the Apes 50th Anniversary 1oz Silver Proof Coin

The Perth Mint has released this Planet of the Apes 50th Anniversary coin.

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-landed on a dystopian planet in the year 3978, about two millenia 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 Charles Heston), discover a society in which apes are the dominant species with human-like intelligence ans 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.

The coin is struck by The Perth Mint from 1oz 99.9% pure silver to proof quality and is issued as legal tender under the authority of the Government of Tuvalu.

The Perth Mint will release no more than 5,000 of the Planet of the Apes 50th Anniversary 2018 1oz Silver Proof Coins.

The coloured coin's reverse 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, along with The Perth Mint's 'P' Mintmark.

The obverse features the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the monetary denomination, and the 2018 year-date.

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