In anticipation of the upcoming release of Transformers: Age of Extinction, Perth Mint has released the Coloured Lenticular Optimus Prime 2014 Silver Proof Coin. This beautiful coin features a coloured portrait of one of the most iconic Transformer of them all, Optimus Prime, that shows him transforming from a red and blue semi-truck into the leader of the Autobots. With the use of lenticular lenses, not a hologram, Optimus Prime morphs as the coin moves.

Optimus Prime is not only the leader of the Autobots, but the embodiment of what they stand for. Brave and compassionate he is determined to protect the universe from the Decepticons and their merciless threat. In Transformers: Age of Extinction he returns once more to fight the constant battle against the Decepticons and protect the inhabitants of Earth and his fellow Autobots. As the leader of the Autobots he is fearless in the face of overwhelming odds and fights undaunted the battle his forbearers passed to him.

The obverse features the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Queen Elizabeth II and the words "Elizabeth II Tuvalu 1 Dollar 2014" and the artist's initials.

The reverse features a beautifully rendered depiction of Optimus Prime by artist Jennifer McKenna as seen in the modern franchise and portrays both the Autobot and vehicle form in amazing detail. The background features the easily recognizable Autobot symbol and the futuristic patterns (in this case partial honeycombs) that Transformers were known for in the early cartoon releases. The lenticular design, unlike holograms, is actually printed onto special lenses and doesn't need special lighting to see their effect.

This beautiful proof coin is truly "more than meets the eye", and is made with 1 ozt of 999 pure silver and features a serialized certificate. It is official legal tender of Tuvalu (non-circulation). With a limited worldwide mintage of only 5,000 this collectible is sure to go fast.

Each coin comes in a novel display box shaped like the Cube from the Transformers franchise movies. The box transforms or opens from the cube to reveal the collectible coin.
