Marilyn Monroe is the subject of this special silver commemorative, which is sure to captivate her many fans.
Monroe (1926 – 1962) was born Norma Jeane Mortenson, but baptized Norma Jeane Baker. She was an American actress and model who graced the screen with her luminous beauty.
Considered the epitome of the ‘blond bombshell’, Monroe began her career as a model, which led to a film contract in 1946. Her early film appearances were minor, but by 1959, she had attained several leading roles and was being hailed by critics. In her relatively short career, she won both a BAFTA award (1957) and a Golden Globe award (1959).
Monroe’s film career and troubled life have been well documented and controversy still surrounds her untimely passing in 1962. What is certain however, is that Monroe remains a ‘megawatt’ of the silver screen.
The coin is struck by The Perth Mint from 1oz of 99.9% pure silver.
The coin’s reverse depicts a photographic image of Marilyn Monroe set against a background of film and stars. The design also includes The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark and a representation of Marilyn’s signature.
Issued as legal tender under the authority of the Government of Tuvalu, the coin bears the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the 2012 year-date on its obverse.
The Perth Mint will release no more than 12,500 of these coins.
The coin is accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
The coin is housed in a classic presentation display case, with a delightfully illustrated themed shipper.
