Are you rich like One-Eyed Willy ?? So this Propstore auction is for you ! This is a unique opportunity to own a piece of history and the first time I see a Goonies prop like this one. This is a real screen used metal prop Doubloon used during the insert shot when Mickey is trying to match the lighthouse, the rock and the restaurant. 
Estimated price £10,000 – 15,000, yes… £10,000 – 15,000


This is the Propstore description and the link to the doubloon is here

Mikey’s (Sean Astin) hero doubloon from Richard Donner’s adventure film The Goonies. Mikey used a doubloon he found in his attic to match the lighthouse, a rock and a restaurant to the Goonies’ treasure map. This moment was achieved via an insert shot, by which the doubloon was shot on a bluescreen and matched up with photography to make it align with the lighthouse, rock and restaurant. This item is screen-matched to the doubloon held by Mikey in this visual-effects shot.

Made of metal, the doubloon resembles a large coin with three holes. One side resembles a French coin and is stamped with “VINC”, “1632”, “CHRS”, and “REGN” around the perimeter, with crowns and fleur-de-lis in the centre. The opposite side resembles an Elizabeth I sixpence and is stamped with “POSVI”, “IVTOR” and a shield crest, with much of the surface intentionally weathered away to appear aged. The coin is painted copper in colour, with green and white rust . The doubloon shows minor wear from production use and remains in very fine condition. Dimensions: 7 cm x 6 cm x ½ cm (2 ¾” x 2 ½” x ?”)

My birthday was in July but I still accept donations for my Goonies archives 🙂 Thank you !
