CoinSilver Half Ounce 2023 Disney 100th Anniversary - Nemo

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 half ounce silver format (abbreviated as 1/2 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.

The mint says about this coin:
As Disney celebrates its 100th anniversary, we’re excited to unveil this official licensed 1/2oz silver proof coin celebrating Nemo, the captivating young clownfish thrust on an unexpected journey in the animated movie triumph Finding Nemo.

Finding Nemo was created by Pixar Animation Studios (Pixar), a subsidiary of The Walt Disney Company in 2006. In the tropical waters of the Great Barrier Reef, curious clownfish Nemo lives in his anemone home with his dad, Marlin. Having led a protected life, Nemo is eager to start school and explore the reef that surrounds it. But when he strays too far, it’s up to his dad to embark on an epic journey to save his only son.

Obverse
Tuvalu / Silver Half Ounce 2023 Disney 100th Anniversary - Nemo - 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 1/2oz 9999 Ag 2023 TUVALU 50 CENTS.

The inscription around the rim also incorporates the precious metal content. "1/2 oz 9999 Ag" means "half ounce of 99.99% silver" - Ag is abbreviated from the Latin word for silver, Argentum.

Below the portrait are the dates of the Queen's reign, 1952 - 2022.
