Striking New Angus Scrimm Memorial Coin


I’m not in the habit of posting about awesome collectibles you can’t get your hands on, but that’s exactly what I’m doing today, so do forgive me. I’m simply dying to share this striking collectible made by a pal of mine. Longtime Phantasm phan, Phantasm Exhumed photographer and collector Scott Pensa has commissioned a memorial coin in tribute to the late great Angus Scrimm with whom Scott was friends with for a good many years up until the Tall Man performer's recent passing.

Limited to 100 individually numbered pieces, Scott produced this coin to personally distribute amongst his friends and the Phantasm phamily (I have 005/100). Looking it over, I have to say it’s positively gorgeous, so much more so than these images might suggest. You’ll have to forgive the quality of these pics - they were taken by my weathered and badly aging iPhone 4S. 

On the “The Tall Man” side of the coin, we have an expertly engraved image of the menacing mortician standing before the spacegate poles in the white room. Every detail is magnificently realized on this piece from the dwarf barrels to the Tall Man’s suit. It might be difficult to see in the photo, but Scott’s fantastic attention to detail reveals itself in the small touches like the tiny red tie-pin on the Tall Man’s suit. To top this coin-face off, there are three engraved silver spheres adorning each side of the image. 

On the “Angus Scrimm” side of the coin, we get both the performer’s stage name and his actual name as well as the dates for his birth and passing. Centered on this side is a sharp-looking picture of Angus smiling and holding a silver sphere from 2014’s Flashback Reunion Weekend in Chicago. Bravo, Scott and thank you. This is a wonderful tribute to our dearly departed.
