Over the years, the Beatles have moved thoughtfully into the merchandise business. The early years of rock ‘n roll artist merch were both an afterthought and a mostly disorganized cash grab, and the Fab Four became more circumspect over the decades.

Now, however, The Beatles’ landmark 1968 animated movie classic, Yellow Submarine, is being honored with a series of authentic, legal-tender collectible coins by Scottsdale, Ariz. company The Crown Mint.

We spoke with Steven Harris, a principal at Crown Mint. His company has been in business since 2008, initially as a design shop. The company started making packaging for coins, and eventually realized it should evolve into making the coins themselves, “as we could do it better,” he says.
