The super-speedy Golden Snitch™ is next to feature in our HARRY POTTER™ Classic Coin Collection. Choose from gold or silver and these officially licensed collectibles will arrive in themed packaging ready for display.
The Golden Snitch, often simply called the Snitch, is the third and smallest ball used in the Wizarding World game of Quidditch™. It flies around the Quidditch field at high speeds, sometimes pausing and hovering. A Quidditch team is composed of seven people – three
Chasers, two Beaters, a Keeper and a Seeker – with four balls in play (a Quaffle, two Bludgers and a Golden Snitch). The entire game is played while flying on broomsticks! The Seeker's goal is to catch the Snitch before the other team's Seeker, earning their team one-hundred and fifty points. The game ends when the Snitch has been caught (or by mutual agreement of the two teams' Captains, which is very rare).
These limited-edition coins show Harry Potter’s name and his uniform number, 07, with the Golden Snitch™ flying over the top. The engraved and frosted elements contrast beautifully against the mirror finish background. The Snitch is even gilded on the silver coin for extra authenticity! Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II effigy on the other side confirms the coins as legal tender.
Each coin comes with a Certificate of Authenticity. This certificate includes the coin’s unique serial number, guarantees the limited mintage of the coin and the pure quality of the silver or gold. As the Gryffindor Seeker, Harry always battled valiantly to capture this elusive and powerful prize. Maybe now it’s your turn to catch one? But be fast, before they are gone for good!
