30th anniversary coin album, basic set complete

Post by grinchy on Mon Dec 18, 2017 7:48 pm

Hasbro came out with a coin album for the thirtieth anniversary, a nice well made album featuring artwork from all the movies up to that point, a nice idea to add something in with the basic figure, I must say I love this line, the packaging is great and looks cool.
I bought an nearly complete album on ebay around five years ago and recently completed the basic set of sixty coins, there are a further twenty spaces for chase coins and spares, i'll see if I can pick these up eventually, but i'm happy to have the basic set, also there was a further boxed set of coins, picked those up to Very Happy

Cheers mate, the basic coins I managed to get for a couple of pounds each, the gold coins being rarer are a lot more expensive, glad to have the basic set complete, if I managed to get the full run including the rares it would be nice but I'm on a budget Very Happy
I imagine a full set of original coins would be extremely expensive, is that something you collect?

No, I don't collect the vintage ones, as a full set would be very difficult and like you say, incredibly expensive to build up. Besides, they have never really appealed to me.

I've got a full set of the 30th aniversary ones moc though, as at the time I was still collecting modern figures, and the set in the presentation box that you showed above. I've also got the boxed POTF2 coin/figure sets from 1997.

Sorry I missed your reply mate
The anniversary coins are plastic not metal and are double sided, I believe the original coins were metal double sided, it would have been nicer if these coins were metal, but you can't have everything, they have nice artwork on them and look nice on display, I love them personally, and glad to have them near complete apart from the gold chase coins
