The Back to the Future films launched in 1985 with the original movie, and capitalized on the craving for Sci-Fi films and television series in America at the time. Unlike other popular options, the Back to the Future films offered comedic relief and a sense of time hopping that wasn’t available in other feature films.
One of the lasting images from all three Back to the Future films was the DeLorean DMC-12. Based upon the short-lived, real-world car, Christopher Lloyd’s character (Doc Brown) turned a DeLorean into a time machine that used a flux capacitor to take himself and Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox) forward into the future and back to the past.
On the reverse face of this 2015 1 oz Back to the Future Silver Proof coin you’ll find a combination of silver finish and brilliant colorization. Along the top is the engraving of the Back to the Future logo from the films, complete with yellow fill and blue outlines. The DeLorean flies through the middle, as depicted at the end of the first film, while the Hill Valley clock tower is struck by lightning below, complete with natural tones.
The obverse of the coin bears the right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty’s effigy is surrounded by engravings that include “Queen Elizabeth II,” “2015,” “Tuvalu,” and “1 Dollar.”
Australia’s Perth Mint hit new heights with this coin, offering an entirely unique presentation case. Each of these coins arrives with its own DeLorean DMC-12 display case. As you open the hood of the vehicle, you’ll find the perfect resting place for your proof coin.
