The New Zealand Mint’s line of Chibi-style collectibles, based on a Japanese-inspired form of playful caricature and exaggeration, provides fresh looks at iconic figures from all sorts of sources. Now, that Mint is taking on the larger-than-life Mortal Kombat franchise, providing a chance to see some of the most intense characters ever featured in gaming through a completely new lens. An example of that is that 2022 Niue Chibi Mortal Kombat Scorpion 1 oz Silver Coin, an exclusive limited mintage that the team at Provident Metals is proud to make available to fans, investors, and collectors.
Your 2022 Niue Chibi Mortal Kombat Scorpion Silver Coin arrives in a themed box with a large display window, ready to be showcased in your collection and protected by its own acrylic capsule. Provident Metals fully insures your shipment to ensure it won’t get lost or damaged en route, and it comes with a Certificate of Authenticity, specifying each coin’s unique place in this limited mintage.
Ian Rank-Broadley’s classic design of Queen Elizabeth’s effigy, seen on coinage in many countries of the British Commonwealth, features on the coin’s obverse side and confirms it as legal tender, notwithstanding its shape. The obverse also carries inscriptions of the Queen’s name, that of Niue, the face value, and the issue date. Finally, it shows a verification of the coin’s purity and the copyright and trademark associated with Mortal Kombat.
The original version of Scorpion, the supernatural ninja from the originalMortal Kombat,comprises the reverse of the coin in an exquisitely shaped and colorized sculpture. Its Chibi art style puts the emphasis on his vintage yellow tunic and mask.
Mortal Kombat has been a powerhouse in popular culture since the first game’s advent in 1992. The secret of its success wasn’t just violent gameplay — although it certainly had that — but the outsized characters and mythology that underpinned it all. From the beginning, Scorpion was a key element: a ninja returned from the dead to avenge his clan and family, with an indelible catchphrase, unique weaponry, and a readily-identifiable look. This precious collectible uses the unusual medium of Japanese-inspired Chibi caricature to bring it all together in a compact and playful form.
