First introduced in 1987, the Simpson family originally appeared in 30-second segments on The Tracey Ullman Show. Two years later, The Simpsons premiered as a half-hour series and instantly became a worldwide pop-culture phenomenon, now seen in 60 countries in 20 languages. In 2018, The Simpsons reached an incredible milestone becoming the longest-running primetime scripted show in television history.
Struck by The Perth Mint from 1oz of 99.99% pure silver, the coin is issued as legal tender under the authority of the Government of Tuvalu.
The Perth Mint will release no more than 1,000 of the Homer Simpson 2019 1oz Silver Coin in card packaging, from a maximum mintage of 25,000.
The coin’s reverse portrays the word “D’OH!” above Homer in his iconic catchphrase pose. A half-eaten glazed donut with sprinkles, Homer’s favourite treat, replaces the letter O in D’OH. Also included in the design is The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark, Matt Groening’s signature, and a background of sprinkles from Homer’s famous donut.
The Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the 2019 year-date, the coin’s weight and fineness and the monetary denomination are depicted on the coin’s obverse.
The Homer Simpson 2019 1oz Silver Coin is housed in a black presentation card.
