CoinSilver Two Ounces 2023 The Phantom

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 features comic book and film character The Phantom.

The Phantom is an American comic book series created by Lee Falk in 1963. The main character is the crime-fighter Phantom, believed to be immortal as his first heroic acts date back to 1536. However, the Phantom is, in fact, a dynasty of heroes who succeed in fighting greed, injustice, and cruelty using the same persona. The Phantom lives in a jungle hideout known as Skull Cave, where all previous Phantoms are buried. Like his predecessors, he relies on his strength, intellect, and legendary immortality to overcome evil.

Written by creator Lee Falk in 1973, the novel "The Story of The Phantom: The Ghost Who Walks" tells the story of young Kit Walker, who eschews college success to become the 21st Phantom on the death of his father.

Obverse
Tuvalu / Silver Two Ounces 2023 The Phantom - 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 2oz 9999 SILVER 2023 TUVALU 2 DOLLARS.

The inscription around the rim also incorporates the precious metal content: two troy ounces of 99.99% silver.

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

The coin was issued during the reign of King Charles III; however, as there was no portrait of the king approved for use in Tuvalu yet, the obverse of the coin portrays a "Queen Elizabeth II Memorial Obverse" with the dates of her reign - "1952 - 2022".
