Few television shows can make the statement that they are culturally significant and globally recognized. The Simpsons certainly can. First debuting on American television sets in 1987, this animated series has grown exponentially from humble beginnings as poorly drawn short skits on The Tracy Ullman Show. The characters from The Simpsons are perhaps some of the best recognized in the world. This includes Duff Beer, the favorite frosty brew enjoyed by many a resident in Springfield. The .9999 pure silver coins were released by Perth Mint in the island nation of Tuvalu. They are government-backed legal tender in Tuvalu.
The Simpsons has been on our television screens for over 30 years, which makes it the longest-running scripted show in television history. The show tackles topics that are funny, polarizing, political and of course a little bit zany. From befriending aliens to conversations with ghosts, this show has managed to stay fresh and relevant across the decades.
The obverse design of the 2019 Tuvalu The Simpsons Duff Beer 1 oz Silver Coin Proof features the right-profile portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. This portrait was designed in 1998 for the Royal Mint by renowned sculpture Ian Rank-Broadley. The design was seen on British coins between 1998 to 2015. It continues to be used on coins in several Commonwealth nations.
The reverse design of the 2019 Tuvalu The Simpsons Duff Beer 1 oz Silver Coin Proof features a can of the frosty brew itself. The colorized coin is vibrant and brings up many a reminder of Homer Simpsons cracking one open while sitting in front of his television. Duff Beer is also enjoyed quite often by the regulars who call Moes Tavern home. In 2016, TIME magazine ranked Duff Beer among the most influential fictional companies of all time.
The 2019 Tuvalu The Simpsons Duff Beer 1 oz Silver Coin Proof is the 4th released design in The Simpsons series, released by Perth Mint. While not a person or a place, Duff Beer is just as important to the show as any other character is. From being Homers beer of choice, to being the branding some characters are built around, like Duff Man.
