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 $500 Five Hundred Dollar Gold Proof Coin struck in solid 22 Carat Rose Gold.
The reverse designed by Natasha Muhl depicts a representation of Barbie’s™ head and shoulders as she appeared in her first outfit.
Around her neck hangs a pendant inset with a breathtaking genuine round brilliant-cut Argyle Pink Diamond.
Also included in the design is Barbie’s™ official 60th Anniversary logo and The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ Mint Mark 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™ inspired handbag black presentation case marked by Barbie’s™ instantly recognisable silhouette with Certificate of Authenticity.
