With a 24-carat gold-plated stocking at its centre, this beautiful 2oz silver antiqued piece is a wonderful celebration of a much-loved Christmas tradition. Struck by The Perth Mint from 2oz of 99.99% pure silver, the coin is issued as legal tender under the authority of the Government of Tuvalu.
Exuding warmth and festive joy, the coin portrays a traditional hearth on Christmas Eve. With a tree, wreath and garlands decked in coloured baubles and ribbons, the design includes a stocking, snow globes, gift-wrapped boxes, sleepy pets, and refreshments for Santa on his busiest night of the year. Also included in the design is The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark. Encased in the coin’s centre is a 24-carat gold-plated Christmas stocking.
The obverse bears the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II supplemented by the dates of her reign ‘1952-2022’. The coin’s weight, purity, monetary denomination, and year-date encircle the image of a Christmas wreath.
Elements of this coin have been individually ‘antiqued’ to give them a unique finish conveying the surface abrasions of an ancient artefact. As a result of this treatment, the appearance of each coin in the mintage may vary.
