There are very few films that can lay claim to the kind of near-universal enjoyed by the Spielberg classicE.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial.Setting box office records during its first theatrical run and winning a steady following in each decade since, the film has garnered countless awards and accolades over the years and has continued to top best film and best science fiction lists. This extraordinary four-decade legacy is celebrated by the 2022 Niue 40th Anniversary E.T. Face Shaped 2 oz Silver Coin on offer from Provident Metals.
The 2022 Niue 40th Anniversary E.T. Face Shaped Silver Coin realized E.T. in vividly colorized and high-relief detail as a shaped sculpture. Each coin comes in a themed case along with a Certificate of Authenticity, shipping to you fully insured against in-transit mishaps by Provident Metals.
The coin’s obverse features Queen Elizabeth II in an effigy that confirms the coin as legal tender despite its unusual shape. It also bears inscriptions of the Queen’s name, the year and country of issue, and the coin’s face value, weight, and silver content.
The coin’s reverse side is a detailed and high-relief colorized sculpture shaped like the head of the affable alien who was the movie’s breakout star. He wears the same kind smile that has always made him a widely-popular character.
Steven Spielberg was one of a small group of directors whose work pioneered the modern “blockbuster” film. He already had several iconic films under his belt — includingJaws, Close Encounters of the Third Kind,andRaiders of the Lost Ark —when he released what would prove to be one of his most universally praised works of all in 1982.E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrialset box office records for its time, won countless accolades both then and since, and continues to be a defining entry in popular culture.
