Today’s Chibi™ Coin launch is the fourth for our THE LORD OF THE RINGS™ series and features the Sinda Elf and master archer, Legolas!
One of the most popular characters to emerge from the films, Legolas Greenleaf is the Prince of Mirkwood. He was introduced to us at the Council of Elrond in Rivendell, where he came as a messenger from his father to discuss Gollum's escape from their guard. When the council was choosing the "Nine Walkers" to pit against the "Nine Riders," Legolas volunteered to represent the elves, and become a member of the Fellowship that would set out to destroy the One Ring.
With his keen eyesight and sensitive hearing Legolas was invaluable to the Fellowship in their journey across Middle-earth. His outstanding bowmanship meant he also served as the company's archer. He was an unstoppable fighter who performed dramatic feats in battle through his ability to extract an arrow from his quiver and fire it on target with blinding speed.
Officially licensed, this 1oz pure silver coin shows Legolas in his grey and green attire, his distinctive long blond hair, pointed ears and bright blue eyes make him instantly recognisable. The effigy of Queen Elizabeth II is found on the opposite side of the coin as confirmation that this is, in fact, still legal tender.
The outer box is THE LORD OF THE RINGS themed and includes a large window so the coin can be displayed easily. This is a precious prize indeed, with only 2,000 being minted! A Certificate of Authenticity is printed on the box along with the coin’s unique serial number.
If you are a fan of this master archer, don’t miss your shot at this one!
