The obverse of all Silver Tuvalu Spiderman Marvel Series Coins features the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. Captured in right-profile relief, this is the fourth-generation design of Her Majesty to appear on British and commonwealth coins. It was created in 1998 at the Royal Mint by Ian Rank-Broadley.
Perth Mint is the oldest operating mint in Australia, having opened in 1899. Through Australia’s federation process in the early 20th century and up to the 1965 establishment of the Royal Australian Mint as a sovereign, independent mint, the Perth Mint was Australia’s primary mint. Today, it exists independent of the Royal Australian Mint in Canberra.
