According to director Steven Spielberg, the idea of E.T. was born from his own memories of an imaginary friend he had as a child, during the stressful time of his parents’ divorce. The film’s gentle and affable alien botanist, accidentally cut off from his crew and spaceship, reflects those roots in the touching relationship he develops with a boy and his friends and family in an American suburb, all of whom pull together to help him “phone home.” It’s known for some of the most iconic scenes in cinematic history, and for creating one of movies’ most iconic characters in the form of E.T. himself.
The coin’s reverse is a detailed and colorized sculpture of E.T. wrapped in an oversized human shirt, carrying the Speak-n-Spell he uses to communicate with his new human friends.
The obverse features a Public Seal of Niue identifying the coin as legal tender of that nation. It bears the inscriptions “Niue,” “2022,” “Two Dollars,” and “1 oz SILVER .999,” along with the Universal City Studios copyright.
