COINSPLUS NOW SPECILAIZES IN COINS

 

Goethe compared the child-prodigy Mendelssohn to the young Mozart.  Berlioz said “There is one god - Bach - and Mendelssohn is his prophet.”  Unquestionably one of the most gifted composers of all time, Felix Mendelssohn is the perfect choice to begin this superb new five-coin series celebrating anniversaries of Romantic-era musicians.

 

Proof Quality 99.9% Pure Silver

 

The coin is struck by The Perth Mint from 1oz of 99.9% pure silver.

 

Mendelssohn Reverse Design

 

Born 200 years ago in Hamburg, Germany, Felix Mendelssohn created such masterpieces as Fingal's Cave , the Scottish Symphony, the Italian Symphony and the Wedding March from the incidental music for A Midsummer Night's Dream before his career was cut tragically short at the age of just 38.  His image on the coin’s reverse is accompanied by a large treble clef, music notes and the inscription ‘Felix Mendelssohn 1809 – 1847’.

 

‘P’ Mintmark

 

The coin’s reverse also incorporates The Perth Mint’s historic ‘P’ mintmark.

 

Issued as Legal Tender

 

Issued as legal tender under the authority of the Government of Tuvalu, the coin bears the Raphael Maklouf effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II on its obverse.
