In homage to Disney’s classic movie Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas we have produced a second hauntingly beautiful limited edition silver coin for 2021. Stand back! It’s Jack!
This cult classic movie tells the tale of Jack Skellington, the Pumpkin King of Halloween Town, who, though busy, feels a void in his life. Upon discovering Christmas Town, he rejoices with a fervour to take over a new holiday. With the help of three mischievous trick-or-treaters, Lock, Shock, and Barrel, he manages to capture Santa Claus, whom he calls Sandy Claws, and proceeds to turn Halloween Town into a Christmas manufacturing plant. Sally, a lonely ragdoll who loves Jack, fears his new obsession will bring him trouble. Despite her efforts, Jack and his reindeer, created by the local evil scientist, set off on Christmas Eve with a lot of ghoulish presents. When the world responds with horror to Jack’s earnest efforts, and cries for the real Santa Claus, Jack realizes his mistake. He manages to save Sally and Santa Claus from the dangerous Oogie Boogie and restore the Christmas holiday. With his newfound love for Sally, he can happily return to being himself.
Made from 1oz pure silver this officially licensed coin features a classic, coloured image of the Pumpkin King, Jack Skellington, amid four gravestones. The coin is also antiqued and engraved with spooky details and Halloween icons for further effect.
It is housed in striking book-style packaging which is designed to match and includes a large window – so you can easily share and scare! The book opens to allow the coin to be removed as you’ll want to see the obverse, which includes a swirling design behind the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. So beware, this one is bound to deliver screams of joy from any Disney fan or collector.
The first two coins in this new The Nightmare Before Christmas Coin Collection are available now, with a further two due for release later in the year. But don’t wait long to order yours, both have a limited mintage of just 3,000 coins!
