Silver Ounce 2022 Street Fighter - Ryu, Coin from Tuvalu
CoinSilver Ounce 2022 Street Fighter - Ryu

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.

Street Fighter, the legendary video game franchise, revolves around a worldwide martial arts tournament featuring a large cast of playable characters - including Ryu. Serious, quiet and seemingly unemotional, Ryu is an honourable warrior whose simple but necessarily violent fighting style involves a number of specialist attacks, including his trademark "vacuum energy fist" - Shinku Hadoken.

"LPM is teaming up with Capcom U.S.A. to release a series of coins to commemorate the most iconic fighting franchise in history - Street Fighter. Since the original made its arcade debut back in 1987, the franchise has revolutionised the fighting game genre and has become a staple in both the video game and pop culture world. In collaboration with The Perth Mint, LPM is pleased to present the first release in the Street Fighter Characters Bullion series featuring Ryu! Struck by The Perth Mint in brilliant uncirculated finish."

Obverse
Tuvalu / Silver Ounce 2022 Street Fighter - Ryu - 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 ounce of 99.99% silver" ("Ag" is abbreviated from Argentum, the Latin word for silver).
