E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial revolved around the misadventures of an alien accidentally separated from his companions and their spaceship, who meets a 10-year-old boy and eventually finds his way home with the aid of tools and toys from a family shed and the help of his new human friends. Combining a friendly alien with authentic human characters and situations resulted in a uniquely accessible and popular film that charmed audiences and became a major touchstone of Eighties popular culture. It contained a famous instance of product placement for Reese’s Pieces and the iconic alien’s catchphrase “phone home.”
The 2022 Colorized Niue Silver 40th Anniversary E.T. Shaped Coin renders the film’s famous alien in pure silver, with a Gem Brilliant Uncirculated finish whose flawless quality and luster are the products of a superb strike.

This coin ships to you from JM Bullion in a themed presentation display box with a protective acrylic capsule and its own Certificate of Authenticity, fully insured against damage or loss.
A detailed and brightly colorized sculpture of E.T. forms the coin’s reverse side. It depicts E.T. wrapped in a human shirt and holding a Speak-n-Spell that he uses to communicate with his human companions, perfectly evoking some of the classic film’s most beloved moments.
