CoinOne Dollar 2020 Tom and Jerry (Year of the Mouse)

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.

The Mint says about this coin:
Celebrate the Year of the Mouse with this fun stamp and coin cover perfect for fans of beloved animation Tom & Jerry.

This product combines two of the most collected items in the world - coins and stamps. The coin is designed and struck by The Perth Mint in collaboration with Australia Post which creates a custom-made envelope and themed stamps. Postmarked for the first day of issue and featuring Australia Post’s Seal of Authenticity, these unique and affordable items make ideal gifts for collectors.

Obverse
Tuvalu / One Dollar 2020 Tom and Jerry (Year of the Mouse) - obverse photo

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 2020.
