Celebrate the Tetris® Brand’s 35th Anniversary with a Limited-Edition Silver Coin

Introducing this limited-edition 1oz silver coin featuring the popular video game, Tetris®, which has captivated the hearts of players since 1984.

This release coincides with the Tetris brand’s 35th Anniversary, celebrated worldwide on June 6th.

In 1984, Tetris® was born from the imagination of computer programmer, Alexey Pajitnov. Inspired by his favorite puzzle board game, Pentominos, Pajitnov created an electronic game that let players arrange puzzle pieces in real time as they fell from the top of the playing field. The resulting design was a game that used seven distinctive geometric playing pieces, each made up of four Blocks.

Pajitnov called this game “Tetris,” a combination of “tetra” (the Greek word meaning “four”) and “tennis” (his favorite sport).

The coin features the iconic Tetrimino shapes from Tetris on a chequered, proof background, and appears as if the Tetriminos are falling, much like in the game itself.

This would make a perfect memento for gaming enthusiasts and those who love playing Tetris. Get yours now.
