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.
