Rick and Morty first aired on the Cartoon Network as a broad parody of the exploits of “Doc” Brown and Marty McFly from Back to the Future. It quickly grew into its own identity and delivered a distinctive blend of dark comedy, slapstick, and surreal sci-fi satire. Built around the adventures of mad scientist Rick Sanchez, his good-hearted but dim-witted grandson Morty Smith, and the dysfunctional Smith family, it delivered a vast number of classic episodes and carved out its own unique place in popular culture. The New Zealand Mint pays tribute to that achievement with the 2022 1 oz Silver Colorized Proof Niue Rick and Morty Coin, now available from Silver.com.

Part of the New Zealand Mint’s Warner Bros. collection, the 2022 Silver Colorized Proof Niue Rick and Morty Coin is a limited-issue precious silver collectible whose artwork and engravings contrast beautifully with its mirror-finish, proof-quality backgrounds. It comes in a custom display case decorated with branded artwork from the show, with a Certificate of Authenticity on the back of the case to identify its unique number in the mintage. Silver.com fully insured each shipment against even the remotest chance of loss or damage en route.
It’s a celebration of the inimitable blend of broad comedy, satire, sci-fi parody and macabre humor that makes Rick and Morty one of the most original shows to air in the Adult Swim programming block. Using interdimensional settings and bizarre futuristic mayhem to tell stories about dysfunctional relations, personal foibles and all the different ways people can turn out in different circumstances, the show is known for expertly blending the sublime with the ridiculous at every turn.
The colorized art montage on the coin’s reverse side brings across its atmosphere of hilarious chaos, featuring several versions of Rick and Morty, portraits of the Smith family, and pieces of the show’s exotic scenery and “effects.” The design is completed with an engraving of Rick’s flying saucer and inscriptions that verify the weight and quality of the silver, along with the Cartoon Network’s copyright and trademark.
The obverse side of the coin features the Ian Rank-Broadley-designed effigy of Queen Elizabeth II, confirming it as legal tender. It’s accompanied by the inscriptions “ELIZABETH II,” “NIUE,” “TWO DOLLARS” and “2022.”
