This very limited edition coin was one of four given away in a New Zealand contest, held by Sony in October of 2009.
Gamers could register to take part in the contest by signing up at the Nathan Drake, NZ page on Facebook. Nathan Drake is the main character in the game, which sees him embark on an epic quest to find the legendary Cintamani Stone.
Once registered, you received a clue which began a hunt for more clues, solving puzzles and ultimately completing Drake’s quiz.
“Make sure you pay attention because the higher your score in the final quiz, the better your chance is of winning the major prize draw for your choice of a set of newly minted Uncharted 2 gold coins or a Sony home entertainment system consisting of a Sony Bravia TV, Sony home theatre system, one of the new 120GB PS3 consoles and a stash of Sony Pictures Blu-ray movies and PlayStation 3 games.”
Prizes included copies of Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, exclusive PlayStation and Uncharted 2 merchandise, Sony Ericsson W705 phones, a Sony S Series Cybershot Camera, a Sony Video Walkman, music courtesy of Sony Music , SKY City movie passes, and a range of Sony Pictures Blu-ray movies. Plus a brand new PS3 to the first person to get everything right.
Not sure if finalists got the coin, or if they were randomly awarded. I can’t seem to figure it out going through the old content material either.
One last thing, I did find this exact image from the auction used somewhere else. With that, and the one feedback seller, I would be careful. Seems an odd item to pull a scam with however.
