While there are many means of keeping time these days, the hourglass is one of the oldest known forms of time tracking. Developed around the 8th century, the hourglass is more of a measure for tracking the passage of time than it is of determining a specific time of day. Hourglasses could be developed to measure varying durations based on the quantity and coarseness of the sand or other particulate within, as well as the bulb size and neck width.
All of the 2021 2 oz Silver Antique Tuvalu Hourglass Coins available here are beautifully displayed by the Perth Mint. Each coin is individually housed in a latex display with a clear view of both the obverse and reverse fields of the coin. The coin and case are available inside of a themed shipper, with a Certificate of Authenticity available. The coins also feature an antique polish that creates ancient visuals on both fields of the coin.
On the obverse side of 2021 Silver Antique Tuvalu Hourglass Coins is a depiction of Queen Elizabeth II. The Queen is shown at the top of the design field above the open space that holds the hourglass insert. Her Majesty is shown in right-profile relief wearing the Girls of Great Britain and Ireland Tiara in a design that was created in 1998 by Ian Rank-Broadley.
The reverse field of 2021 2 oz Silver Antique Hourglass Coins comes with an ornate design around the central hourglass insert. These designs showcase the sun at the top of the field and the moon at the bottom, with the phases of the moon featured around the edge of the field between the two.
