The obverse of Silver Tuvalu Thor Coins bears the portrait of Queen Elizabeth II in right-profile relief. Her Majesty is captured here in the fourth-generation design from Ian Rank-Broadley and was created in 1998 for use on British coins from the Royal Mint.
Perth Mint is the oldest operating mint in Australia and was initially opened in 1899 as the third and final Royal Mint facility on the continent. Today it is an independent mint operating outside the Royal Australian Mint system and is controlled by the government of Western Australia.
