2005 King Kong Silver Proof Coin with Gold Highlights

A roaring image of King Kong was captured with ease in gold on this silver proof coin.

Highlights:

  • Minted in fine silver with gold plating
  • Image of King Kong roaring
  • Presented in a case covered with a shipper box featuring imagery of the crate used to transport Kong.

As Kong was unleashed on our screen once more, New Zealand Post captured him with ease. The image of Kong roaring was highlighted in gold on a coin that was minted using 99.9% fine silver.

This coin was safely restrained in a striking presentation case. This case was covered with a shipper box designed by Saatchi and Saatchi that incorporated imagery of the crate that Kong was transported within in the King Kong movie.
