In 2019 to celebrate the 60th Anniversary of Mattel's Barbie™, the Perth Mint on behalf of the issuing country of Tuvalu released a very Limited Issue Barbie $1 One Dollar Silver Proof Coin struck in solid fine .999 Silver and weighing one ounce of pure Silver.
The reverse design features a colour image of Barbie™ in her first and now iconic swimsuit outfit which is highly sought after by collectors and includes the wording Inspiring Girls Since 1959 while the obverse bears the elegant portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Ian Rank Broadley.
These legal tender coins have been struck to proof quality using specially prepared dies and highly polished blanks.
Each coin is housed in a gorgeous Barbie™ branded cosmetic compact styled case lined with diamantes.
Packaged within a themed shipper and accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity, the coin is a true Barbie™ collector’s item.
