Commemorative Coin, 2022
bronze and cubic zirconia
63 x 63 x 5mm
This commemorative coin is made under license as a capital raise for Elixir Productionz, a Tāmaki Makaurau-based film production company led by Finnbar Porteous.
Ten coin mintage. Solid bronze cast, burnished in ultra-high relief, with an interrupted reeded edge. The image: a sombre lament for the hordes of provincial hopefuls, heads turned each night toward Auckland’s garish figurine – the Sky Tower. Verso, disappointment: a circular device in rustic likeness of an Auckland Council manhole cover.
Unable to access adequate credit through ordinary channels, Elixir appeals to the art market for working capital. The proceeds of this sale will establish Elixir as a going concern. The intrinsic value of each coin is guaranteed by Elixir by way of a put option (non-inflation adjusted) exercisable by notice served in the usual way at head office.* Coins non-fungible.
