The Harry Potter Mirror Coin features a beautiful image of the iconic Hogwarts castle and is a must-have for every Harry Potter fan and coin collector. The coin has one empty side and an image of Hogwarts on the other side. When, a flashlight shines on the empty side, the image of the Hogwarts castle reveals itself in the reflection of the light beam.
The Harry Potter Mirror Coin is strictly checked and approved by J.K. Rowling, exclusively for the Royal Dutch Mint.
