Fancy a Duff? Homer does and raises one on Tuvalu’s new Simpsons silver coin

REVERSEFRAME

Cult animated show, The Simpsons, appeared last month on three silver coins from the Perth Mint and today sees the addition of a fourth. Returning to the mints one ounce coloured coin format, this issue depicts the star of the show and dysfunctional dad, Homer Simpson. Standing outside Moe’s Tavern with a pint of Duff in his hand, Homer is clearly in his element.

Definitely a cool coin for The Simpsons fan, it’s made all the better by using the acrylic block display frame that we consider one of the best ways to show off a coin like this. The mintage is capped at 5,000 pieces – a number liable to sell out quickly if the last three issues are a reliable indicator. It helps that, in my opinion at least, that this has a more appealing design than those, although it lacks the gimmick factor of the donut coin. Available now.
