Pobjoy Mint has launched the world’s first interactive app game coin.
Struck for Sierra Leone, the partially colored 38.60 mm, 28.28 gram cupro-nickel dollar introduces numismatics to the world of Angry Birds™ – the international video game franchise created by Finnish company Rovio Entertainment. The reverse design features Red, the angriest Angry Bird of them all.
The coin includes a Zappar code. When this is scanned into the Zappar app on a mobile phone, it allows interaction with Angry Birds™ characters. This includes the possibility of taking selfies with each of the assorted inhabitants of Bird Island.
Mintage is 10,000.
