1. Coin Story

This 1oz silver coin minted by The Perth Mint is to celebrate the long running television series The Simpsons. I grew up with the Simpsons as a kid, it is hard to believe that it is still going strong all these years later.

This coin is a coloured silver proof coin, which I am not usually a big fan of, but I think the colour really works on this coin, as the vibrancy in colour of the Simpsons characters brings the design of this coin to life.

The Perth Mint has the official license for minting The Simpsons designed coins. There are a number of coins in the series and they always seem to be highly sort after by collectors. I currently do not own any Simpsons coins in my stack. I have had a few opportunities in the past, but chose not to each time.

2. Coin Packaging

Each individual coin is shipped in a protective cardboard shipper. The display case inside is clear acrylic allowing you to enjoy the coin design from all angles. The coin is also accompanied by a uniquely numbered certificate of authenticity. The outer shipper is black with silhouettes of Simpsons characters, in the centre of the box is The Simpsons logo.
