That’s in the LEGO Group’s EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa) region, where the company previously confirmed the coin would launch at 9am BST – 15 minutes after this story goes live. It’s already been and gone in Australia and New Zealand, suggesting supplies are as low as with previous coins, so you’ll need to be on the button straight away if you want one.
The gold coin is printed with the LEGO logo on one side to ape the original minifigure accessory, and the VIP logo on the other, matching the Castle, Pirates, Octan and Classic Space coins already released. And it’s actually already arrived in the hands of at least one lucky fan who received it in error – or perhaps unlucky, given they’ll have missed out on the coin they tried to order.
As with all four previous coins, you’ll need 1,150 VIP points in the bank to redeem it. But don’t worry if you do miss out: according to the VIP team, the coins will be making a comeback later this year. We’ll confirm the exact timing and details of that return as soon as we can.
- I like to think of myself as a journalist first, LEGO fan second, but we all know that’s not really the case. Journalism does run through my veins, though, like some kind of weird literary blood – the sort that will no doubt one day lead to a stress-induced heart malfunction. It’s like smoking, only worse. Thankfully, I get to write about LEGO until then.
