Are you a coin collector looking to start a Pop Culture Coin collection? A comic book aficionado who collects everything on your favourite heroes? Or even a dedicated fan of a musician or band? If so, we created this page especially for you.
Most of our Pop Culture Coins are special items, issued by a national mint and they come from all over the world. We don’t produce these ourselves and we never modify the original design of the coins in any way, so when you buy one, not only are you purchasing a coin with your favourite hero or celebrity, you’re also getting a collectable coin which probably will never be issued again.
Offer Pop Culture Coins as a gift
If you’re looking for gift ideas for a friend or a relative, one of these coins might be exactly what you need, as with the rise in popularity of comic book-related series and films, more and more people are starting to collect memorabilia of their favourite heroes. If your son, daughter, parent, granddad or grandmum can’t get enough of their favourite musician, actor or band, then offer them a coin with their idol! It will certainly be a unique gift, one that will stand out in a crowd of Christmas or anniversary gifts.
Coincraft is a family-run company based in London providing collectors from all over the world with British Coins, Ancient Coins, World Coins, Banknotes and other collectables since 1955 and we do not sell anything as an investment.
In 2007 it was the 30th anniversary of the death of Elvis Presley. Benham in Folkestone issued four special covers with their ‘silk’ pictures on them. Each cover has a different photo along with a 1st class stamp for ‘Love’. But best of all the Post Office attached to each a first-class stamp with a colour reproduction of the photo on the cover. You get Elvis in his Army uniform, as a cowboy, in a blue mood and film with his signature. They are marked ‘End of a Rock and Roll Era 1935-1977’. You get all four ‘silk’ First Day Covers but supplies are limited.
The entrancing game of Trivial Pursuit has now been immortalized on a Canadian coin. Which makes sense as the inventors were Canadian. This coin was for their 35th anniversary 1982-2017. Each $25 silver coin has H. M. Queen Elizabeth II on the obverse and the full-colour Pursuit wheel on the reverse. The coin weighs one ounce of 999 fine silver and is in Proof condition. It comes in a handsome wooden case with certificate. Unfortunately, we were only able to secure 20 pieces. They are sure to be popular with collectors and gamers alike. We wish we could have bought more of them, but that was all that was left...
These are Benham First Day Covers all Official and all postmarked in Memphis, Tennessee, US on the 16th of August 2002. Each of the covers has a large colour sticker of The King, a stamp with that photograph from an overseas country and 2 United States stamps one 29c with Elvis and one 8c stamp. Plus a US legal tender 25c overprinted with the same colour photo of Elvis. Offered here photographed in a Cowboy hat and the stamp is from Grenada. Unfortunately supplies are very limited. They were issued for the 25th anniversary of his death.
Elvis Presley 1935-1977 was one of the most important influences on our modern music. We think he was ‘Fab’ and many of us here in Coincraft loved most of his music, that was until his movies changed that. Some of these were probably a bit rushed. This crownsized medallion is flashed with gold. On one side you have a close up with the legend ‘The King of Rock ‘n’ Roll’ with a facsimile signature. The other side has Elvis with guitar swinging away with ‘Elvis Presley’ and the dates 1935-1977. Each medal comes in a protective plastic capsule, limit five per collector at this price.
These beautiful crownsized medals honour ‘The King’ of music, Elvis Presley. On one side you have a portrait of Elvis, a copy of his signature and the legend ‘The King of Rock n’ Roll’. The other side has his dancing to the music and his dates 1935-1977. They come in two colours, silver-coloured and gold coloured. Each Prooflike piece comes in a capsule. If you liked some of the other Elvis material we have offered in the past, you will love these medallions. Supplies are limited.
Star Wars 1 Ounce Silver $2.00, featuring Kylo Ren. If you liked Star Wars you will love this Official Silver Proof coin of one of the characters, Kylo Ren, a Sith Lord from the First Order. The coins are struck in 1 Troy ounce of 999 Proof Silver, coloured on one side and in a heavy Perspex holder. H. M. Queen Elizabeth II is on the obverse of each of these $2.00 silver proof coins from Niue. Supplies are very limited and they would make excellent presents.
This is pure silver (999 fine) coin of the Solomon Islands with the Queen’s portrait on the obverse. But the reverse is printed in full colour to look like a pizza. You scratch the picture and it smells like a pizza. Better yet the box it comes in what looks like a pizza box. You can sure have a lot of fun with these. We've just found what remains of the original stock we've purchased. There are not many left, and these are getting harder and harder to find. So if you want to acquire this pure silver crown with a secret ingredient, the time is now!
Issued by Tuvalu, struck by the Perth Mint in Australia and authorized by Columbia Pictures. This 2017 One Dollar coin contains one ounce of pure silver and has the Queen’s portrait on the obverse. The reverse has the group of three with a ghost behind them all in full colour. Each crownsized coin comes in a handsome case printed with the ‘no ghosts here’ symbol. There is a numbered certificate of authenticity and a full colour outer package. We were told that having one of these coins guarantees that you won’t have any ghosts around the house. But they wouldn’t put that in writing. We have just 40 pieces in stock and once they are gone, they are gone…
