Sea of Thieves Coin Limited Edition Collectible
I’ll admit that I haven’t played this game yet. It’s been on my bucket list a long a long list of other great games out there. But I’ve very much in-tuned with what’s going on and seen a lot of game-play. With that said I stumbled upon this super cool Sea of Thieves Coin Limited Edition Collectible.
I always loved limited edition coins like this that come out for games. Highly popular with Super Mario games where there’s limited edition coins for almost every title.

During the months leading up to the games release, Microsoft had tweeted about the coin and Best Buy had a dedicated page showcasing the coin. On the page is said:
Microsoft – Sea of Thieves Pre-order Collectible Coin
For a limited time, pre-order Sea of Thieves and receive a branded collectible coin. This is a 3-inch metal coin imprinted with Sea of Thieves logos and icons.
Issuing a collectible like a “coin” with the release of a game is marketing 101. It’s called the “bait” approach. You see it time and time again where companies tie a tangible object to entice the consumer to make a purchase, or in this case, a pre-order. Some coins that have come out and become quite valuable like The Legend of Zelda Zellers Coin, Twilight Princess Coin, PlayStation Coin 20th Anniversary, and Breath of the Wild Coin.
Not sure how Sea of Thieves will pan out as the coins I mentioned are from strong backings of LOZ and PlayStation as a brand. Only time will tell.
