CoinOne Dollar 2014 Forever Love - Cockatoos

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 (NCLT) coins under the authority of Tuvalu. Some of these are in the one dollar denomination, and have the same specifications that the mint uses for its large non-circulating Australian dollar range; these are larger than the normal circulating dollar coins.

This coin is part of the Forever Love gift range by the Perth Mint which has a different design every year, and features two cockatoos.

The Mint says about it:
The coin features one of Australia’s most beautiful birds, the Major Mitchell Cockatoo. Representative of true love and companionship, these adorable creatures mate for life and can live for decades.

Obverse

The obverse of the coin 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, the date of issue and the value: QUEEN ELIZABETH II 1 DOLLAR TUVALU 2014.

Above the branch to the left of the male bird, the designer's initials IJ (for Ing Ing Jong). The Perth Mint's P mint mark is on the right.

Around above, the inscription Forever Love.
