This limited edition 1oz silver coin celebrates the 1991 arcade game, Street Fighter II. The first Street Fighter was released by the Japanese game manufacturer Capcom Company in 1987 and gave rise to an entire genre of fighting games and spawned a multitude of sequels.
This precious collectible incorporates the game logo on a mirror finish background, above a coloured image of Ryu and Ken, mid-battle, with Ryu executing the special attack Hadoken. The obverse of the coin features the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, confirming it as legal tender.
The coin is housed inside a specially designed Street Fighter II-themed box which replicates the arcade cabinet! It features the coin’s battle image on the display screen and shows the main protagonist of the game, Ryu, on the sides. Confirmation of the coin’s authenticity is printed on its base. Lifting the “cabinet” carefully off the base reveals the coin inside cushioned in black velvet.
Officially licensed, there are only 2,000 available worldwide. The perfect memento for those who grew up playing Street Fighter or indeed any gaming enthusiasts!
