The early Eighties gave rise to many toy lines that featured transforming robots, but arguably the most successful and longest-lived were the Transformers from Hasbro. The successful long-term rise of the “robots in disguise” is largely owed to the pairing of the toys in their early days with a wildly popular cartoon promoting them, the original 1984 animated seriesThe Transformers.It introduced the story of the Autobots and the Decepticons, good and evil Transformers whose battle over their ancestral machine planet of Cybertron eventually came to Earth. One of the most iconic characters on the show was the tyrannical Decepticon leader Megatron, seen on the New Zealand Mint’s 2022 Proof Niue Colorized Transformers Megatron 1 oz Silver Coin.

Megatron’s vintage design is captured in full color on the 2022 Proof Niue Colorized Transformers Megatron Silver Coin just as he appeared in the show. He is offset against a brilliant mirror-finish background that provides the luster of proof-quality silver. Each coin ships in a themed box inside a protective acrylic capsule along with a Certificate of Authenticity that shows its unique number in the limited mintage.


The coin’s obverse side features Ian Rank-Broadley’s 1998 effigy of the late Queen Elizabeth II, verifying it as legal tender. It’s surrounded by the inscriptions “ELIZABETH II,” “NIUE,” “TWO DOLLARS,” and “2022.”


The coin’s reverse side features Megatron in full color with his mighty arm cannon blazing, designed to match his appearance in the Eighties cartoon and shown beside an engraved and frosted Transformers logo. The number “1984” is inscribed in the foreground in a nostalgic font, while smaller inscriptions at the rim confirm the coin’s silver content and Hasbro’s copyright.


The idea of the transforming robot was already very much “in the air” in the early Eighties when leading toy company Hasbro decided to bring the idea to America. Pairing the product with media tie-ins would eventually turn it into one of the most popular toy lines of all time, and the 1984 debut ofThe Transformersanimated series would prove the starting point of a long-running media franchise that produced multiple shows, animated features, and blockbuster live-action films from creative minds that included Michael Bay. The New Zealand Mint’sTransformersseries celebrates the vivid characters that started it all.
