The Clown Prince is on Currency!
Sideshow Presents…. The first villain to feature in the Chibi Coin Collection is, of course, none other than DC Comics’ most infamous DC Super-Villain. The Joker 1oz silver coin has been shaped and colored to resemble the legendary Clown Prince of Crime, instantly recognizable by his trademark green hair and purple suit.
The Joker once said:
All you care about is money! This city deserves a better class of criminal and I’m going to give it to them!
On the reverse of the coin is the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, confirming it as a legal tender coin.
The Joker themed outer box includes a large window so you can easily display this wicked collectible. Only 2,000 will be made, so they are very limited editions indeed – no joke!
This Limited Edition Coin Puts Jingle In Your Pocket For Christmas!
Just In Time For The Holiday Season
Could you imagine the irony… your lucky coin is a Joker Coin and your favorite character is Two-Face? I digress… it’s the ultimate in “one up man hip” in that Joker has currency before Two-Face! The other twist is, this coin is super cute and well worth having. This thing would be great to carry around, take everywhere you go, and show your friends. The real Joker, however… not so much!
What do you make of the Joker 1oz Silver Coin? Would you like one in your wallet? If you had multiple, would you try to spend them, or keep them safe forever? Please let us know.
