A cursed Aztec coin with a premiere invitation and reference photograph from Gore Verbinski's action-adventure film Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl. Central to the film's plot, coins formed the vast treasure hoard of Cortes on Isla de Muerta which transformed Captain Barbossa's (Geoffrey Rush) crew into cursed immortals.
This lot consists of a custom-made, cast metal coin plated with faux gold and engraved with a skull-and-sun symbol on one side and a geometric Aztec pattern on the other; an invitation to the June 28, 2003 world premiere at Disneyland; and a color-printed Disney archival reference photograph featuring the coin. The coin is intentionally distressed by production, exhibiting white residue and discoloration throughout. Dimensions (coin): 1.5" x 1.5" (4 cm x 4 cm); (paperwork): 8.5" x 11" (21.75 cm x 28 cm)
Estimate: $3,000 - 5,000
