After looking at the new Homer bullion coin yesterday, we're taking a quick dip back into the animated world of one of TV's most dysfunctional families. This time it's Bart, who's appeared on many coins at the Perth Mint over the last few years. Rather than a traditional round coin, however, the mint has decided to tap into [...]

Homer is back! The Perth Mint's very cool 'The Simpson's' silver bullion coin series continues today, with the second solo appearance of the dopey patriarch, Homer. This has always been a good series, jumping between more formal character portraits (of which this is the third), and general scenes from the smash-hit animated TV show, four of those having [...]

Round 2! Fight! Chun-Li is the second iconic Street Fighter character in LPM's videogame-inspired bullion coin series Last November, we were impressed by the first in LPM's new Street Fighter bullion coin series, Ryu. Rather than reproduce the pixel-art of the games, they featured realistic portrayals of the character, and did so with great success. The [...]

The Perth Mint expands its uber-cool The Simpsons bullion coin range with 'Marge & Maggie' If you don't know 'The Simpsons', (where have you been..?) they're animated, hugely popular, even after 33 seasons, and one of the big franchises at the Perth Mint. There've been many proof coins, mostly unadventurous in design, but also a [...]

It's movie and TV coin time with our early November round-up of the new releases Our fifth round-up of movie and TV coins has a couple of surprises, but is generally more of the same. In general, it's more Chibi, more shaped coins, and more 007, so our decision to round these coins up rather than [...]

One of the Perth Mint's wackier ranges, the loose mix of antiqued coins with unusual centres has been in production since they released a very pretty Alice in Wonderland coin with a small clock in the middle, back in 2015. Over the years we've seen a compass, thermometer, even an abacus inset into coins, which might sound [...]
