From filmmaker Steven Spielberg comes the science-fiction action adventure Ready Player One, based on Ernest Cline’s bestseller of the same name, which has become a worldwide phenomenon. And now we have Ready Player One Collector Coins.
The film is set in 2045, with the world on the brink of chaos and collapse. But the people have found salvation in the Oasis, an expansive virtual reality universe created by the brilliant and eccentric James Halliday (Mark Rylance). When Halliday dies, he leaves his immense fortune to the first person to find a digital Easter egg he has hidden somewhere in the Oasis, sparking a contest that grips the entire world.
Those who decide to join the contest are hurled into a breakneck, reality-bending treasure hunt through a fantastical universe of mystery, discovery and danger.
These exciting new coins feature Parzival and Art3mis, avatars adopted by two of the movie’s main characters and strongest Oasis contestants – Wade Watts and Samantha Evelyn Cook.
