CoinSilver Ounce 2022 The Simpsons - Homer Simpson

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 silver ounce format (abbreviated as 1 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 a long running series by the Perth Mint featuring characters from The Simpsons cartoons, and shows Homer Simpson.

The Mint says about it:
Struck from 1oz of 99.99% pure silver, this official licensed coin will appeal to fans of Homer, star of The Simpsons hit television show. The longest-running prime-time scripted show in television history, The Simpsons is a worldwide pop-culture phenomenon enjoyed across 200 countries in 27 languages. In 2018,The Simpsons reached an incredible milestone becoming the longest-running prime-time scripted show in television history.

Obverse
Tuvalu / Silver Ounce 2022 The Simpsons - Homer Simpson - 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 oz 9999 Ag 2022 TUVALU 1 DOLLAR.

The inscription around the rim also incorporates the precious metal content. "1 oz 9999 Ag" means "one troy ounce of 99.99% silver" ("Ag" is abbreviated from Argentum, the Latin word for silver).
