Gold Fifth-Ounce 2023 Year of the Rabbit - Success, Coin from Tuvalu
CoinGold Fifth-Ounce 2023 Year of the Rabbit - Success

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.

The Australian Perth Mint issues a large variety of non-circulating legal tender coins under the authority of Tuvalu. Some of these are in the fifth-ounce gold format (abbreviated as 1/5 oz). Strictly speaking, they are 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.

This coin is part of the Chinese Astrological Series 2023 Year of the Rabbit by the Perth Mint, and is dedicated to Success.

The Mint says about it:
People born under the sign of the lunar rabbit are regarded as astute, inventive, observant, and kind - exceptional characteristics that bode well for them in 2023.

Obverse

The obverse shows the crowned mature head of Queen Elizabeth II facing right (her effigy known as the "Fourth Portrait"). The Queen wears the "Girls of Great Britain and Ireland" diamond tiara, a wedding gift from Queen Mary (Her Majesty's grandmother) in 1947 - which she also has on the Machin and the Gottwald portraits.

In small letters below the head, the artist's initials IRB (for Ian Rank-Broadley).

Around the effigy is the monarch's legend and the date: QUEEN ELIZABETH II TUVALU 2023.
