CoinSilver Two Ounces 2021 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 two-ounce format (abbreviated as 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.

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:
Homer Simpson, one of the best-loved characters from the multi award-winning television show The Simpsons, is portrayed in high relief on this stunning proof quality coin struck from 2oz of pure silver. Key features: Proof quality 99.99% pure silver Grinning Homer Simpson design High relief strike Mintage – 2,000 Official licensed product TM & © 20th Televison

Seen across 60 countries in 20 languages, The Simpsons has been a worldwide pop-culture phenomenon since it first premiered in 1989. In 2018, the animated series reached an incredible milestone by becoming the longest-running prime-time scripted show in television history.

Obverse
Tuvalu / Silver Two Ounces 2021 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 2 oz 9999 Ag 2021 TUVALU 2 DOLLARS.

The inscription around the rim also incorporates the precious metal content. "2 oz 9999 Ag" means "two troy ounces of 99.99% silver" ("Ag" is abbreviated from Argentum, the Latin word for silver).
