In a film that focused on capturing dangerous ghouls and haunting ghosts, there was a lot of comedic relief. Much of that was provided by the downright lovable, and seemingly harmless, Slimer. Though he had no official name during the scriptwriting process, many of the film’s participants, including director/producer Ivan Reitman and actor Dan Aykroyd thought of Slimer as the ghost of Bluto from the cult classic Animal House, and as such took to calling Slimer “The Ghost of John Belushi.”
On the obverse of all Tuvalu Ghostbusters Slimer Silver Coins you’ll find the right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty is captured in this design by Ian Rank-Broadley, and it serves as the fourth-generation depiction in use on many commonwealth and British coins since 1998.
The reverse of the coin features the image of Slimer. Captured in his full, bright-green glory, the beloved ghoul is captured in the draw of the Ghostbusters’ signature containment units as he’s sucked in for capture and storage. Engravings include “Ghostbusters,” with the infamous logo of the group serving as the “O” in the name.
