CoinSilver Ounce (2023) Pac-Man - Arcade Cabinet

In the United States, a significant number of private mints produce bullion which is not legal tender and is targeted at investors and not at coin collectors - such as this one.

This silver ounce is part of a series of coins and non-legal tender "rounds" featuring Pac-Man themes, and depicts part of the artwork of the arcade cabinet housing the game.

Pac-Man is an arcade video game originally released in 1980 by Bandai Namco Entertainment Inc. (previously Namco). Once it was officially introduced in the U.S. in October 1980, it gained popularity far higher than in Japan, called “Pac-Man fever.” It spawned a wide merchandising program with more than 400 items and a TV series with high ratings (56% of share) in the U.S., which resulted in receiving the “most successful coin-operated game machine” award from the Guinness World Records in June 2005. With new console and mobile games launching every year, its popularity has crossed the globe for over 40 years.
