Collectible Chibi Coins
Published on 01/28/2021 by APMEX
These Silver Chibi coins from the New Zealand Mint have an extremely limited mintage of 2,000 coins each and feature officially licensed depictions of characters from Harry Potter, Star Wars, DC and more! These fine Silver coins are inspired by the Japanese art form known as chibi, which takes traditional images of characters and transforms them into a small, whimsical version of the original.
The head of a chibi character is usually between one third and one half the character's height. Additionally, chibi characters typically lack small details. As a result, when a character of average proportions is depicted as a chibi character, certain aspects of their design will be left out or simplified. In contrast, others will be embellished as a prominent feature. If a character has a signature characteristic (for example, Hermione's hair), this will typically be prominent on the character's chibi version.
