Celebrating 100 years since Charlie Chaplin’s first movie appearance and the debut of his onscreen character The Tramp, The Perth Mint is proud to present this stunning commemorative. Each coin honours the life of British actor and filmmaker, Sir Charles Spencer ‘Charlie’ Chaplin KBE. A master of mime and a comic genius, his stage persona The Tramp became a global phenomenon, providing decades of laughter to audiences all over the world.
With the use of lenticular lenses, the reverse of the coin features a coloured image of The Tramp jauntily walking as depicted in the closing scenes of the 1928 silent movie, The Circus, bordered by the inscription CHARLIE CHAPLIN. The images transform from one to the other as the coin is moved.
Issued as legal tender under the authority of the Government of Tuvalu, the coin features the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the monetary denomination and the 2014 year-date on its obverse.
The Charlie Chaplin - 100 Years of Laughter silver coin comes in a framed latex display case which displays both sides of the coin. The case is packaged within a beautifully illustrated shipper, and is accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
