Silver Kilo (1 kg), Coin Type from Tuvalu (issued 2016 - )
Coin TypeSilver Kilo (1 kg)

The Tuvaluan Dollar is the currency of Tuvalu - a small nation in the Pacific Ocean. Tuvalu has never had banknotes of its own, and has been issuing coins since 1976; these circulate together with coins of the Australian Dollar, which is also legal tender in the country, and to which the Tuvaluan Dollar is pegged.

Some foreign mints also issue a large variety of non-circulating legal tender coins under the authority of Tuvalu, including in the very large one kilogram (1kg) of silver format. These are "Non-Circulating Legal Tender" (NCLT) and not bullion, as they are priced at a premium and are targeted at collectors who appreciate them for their artistic merit and collectable value and not just for their precious metal content.
