The next LEGO VIP collectible coin isn’t launching on May 1

The LEGO Group has announced that the next VIP collectible coin won’t be launching on May 1 as expected.

So far, all of the VIP collectible coins (bar the first one) have arrived on the first day of the month: the Pirates coin went live on February 1, the Octan coin was available March 1, and so on. By that logic, it would have been fair to assume the fifth coin – based on the classic gold coin minifigure accessory – would launch in the VIP Rewards Centre on May 1.

It would also have been entirely wrong, however, as the LEGO Group has now confirmed (via the LEGO Ambassador Network) that the collectible won’t be available on Saturday. That should alleviate some of the stress around trying to snag the coin – which will likely launch in limited quantity, as per the previous four – at the same time as making your May the Fourth purchases.

The question remains, though: when will we be able to get our hands on the fifth and final coin? The LEGO Group hasn’t given a specific date at the moment, but says there will be an announcement in advance of the drop, so you should at least have a little notice to prepare.

Based on previous collectible coins, you’ll need to spend 1,150 points to pick up the gold token, which is emblazoned with the LEGO logo on one side and the LEGO VIP logo on the other. You can take a closer look at the coin right here, courtesy of a VIP member who mistakenly received it way ahead of schedule in February.

We’ll let you know the launch date for the fifth and final coin as soon as the LEGO Group announces it, so keep an eye on Brick Fanatics in the days to come.

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. You can follow me on Twitter at @brfa_chris.
