Vampirella has dominated the comic book page, and now sets her sights on collectible coins! Dynamite is releasing two unique 4-coin sets, with the exclusive world premiere available through Sideshow. Each coin features a stunning artistic take on Vampirella by top artists Alex Ross, J. Scott Campbell, Stanley “Artgerm” Lau and Lucio Parrillo!
Dynamite’s limited-edition coins use an innovative colorization technique over a base of an authentic US John F. Kennedy Half-Dollars, with the original artwork prominently displayed on the obverse side of each coin. Packaged with a full-color Certificate of Authenticity, featuring the artwork of each artist and encased in an acrylic capsule to protect the coin, this currency is in fact legally able to buy a newspaper or bag of chips – but you won’t want to do that!
The Vampirella 50th Anniversary Main Set will feature genuine John F. Kennedy Half-Dollars with Vampirella cover art from legendary artists Alex Ross, J. Scott Campbell, Artgerm and Lucio Parrillo. The Vampirella 50th Anniversary Gold Set adds a layer of gold plating in real 24-karat gold to enhance the vivid cover art.
The retail price for the Main 4-coin Set is $79.96 USD per set. The Gold 4-coin Set is available for $120 USD per set.
To celebrate Vampirella’s big 50th anniversary Dynamite is premiering these new collectible coins exclusively through Sideshow.com. Sideshow is one of the leaders in specialty manufacturing and distribution of the most highly sought-after licensed and original collectible products, and Dynamite is thrilled that Sideshow is premiering these limited edition coins.
“In our 15-year history, Dynamite has always strived to offer fans not only the highest quality comic books, but also collectibles of all types,” said Nick Barrucci, CEO and Publisher. “Fans were excited about the Red Sonja coins we offered recently, so we knew had to bring our other flagship heroine to this category, with all of the Vampirella hype around Christopher Priest’s series, the Vampirella/Red Sonja ongoing, and the just-announced Vengeance of Vampirella revival.”
