Gerry Anderson’s iconic Sci-Fi show blasted onto television screens in 1965. Using a unique puppet system known as SuperMarionation, Thunderbirds became an instant hit. Set in the year 2065 on a secret island base, the series stars the Tracy family, who together battle the forces of evil as ‘International Rescue’. Included in this line up were five vehicles known as Thunderbirds. Piloted by the talented Tracy brothers, the dynamic combination ensured heroic search and rescue missions in each intrepid episode. Today Thunderbirds remains one of the most influential British Sci-Fi television shows of its era, and continues to play an influential part in modern culture.

The coin is packaged in a high-quality wooden coin case and presented in a Thunderbirds-themed outer box with a uniquely numbered Certificate of Authenticity. The Thunderbirds 50 Years Anniversary ¼ oz Gold Coin is highly collectible, with a worldwide limited mintage  of only 1,000 coins, making this an superb gift for any Thunderbirds fan or coin aficionado.
