Next year we will be celebrating 25 years of Jurassic Park. From roughly January to April 2018, Universal Pictures will actively promote and celebrate the original movie, with the later months of the year being dedicated to Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, which releases June 22 2018!
You may remember earlier in the year we discovered the official 25th Anniversary logo on an Amazon listing for a wall calendar, and now, thanks to the wonders of the world wide web, we are beginning to see more of the new products and collectables that will drain our bank accounts next year!
First up from Iron Gut Publishing we have this Jurassic Park Collectable Coin 25th Anniversary (silver plated). This piece is numbered and embossed on both sides and is limited to 5000 pieces. The coin releases this November – check out more here!
Also from Iron Gut Publishing is this collection of Jurassic Park art prints – they average around $10, and can be purchased from web stores such as SmartArts.Gallery!

The final product is another IncrediBuilds set, this one circling back to the Jurassic Park 25th Anniversary theme:Jurassic Park: Tour Vehicle Deluxe Book and Model Set!
