There are few, if any, children’s shows that have had a longer life and made a greater impact on multiple generations than the fun and educational classic Sesame Street. The show’s characters are now the subjects of a series of commemorative silver coins from the Independent State of Samoa, as seen in the latest issue, the 2022 Proof Samoa Sesame Street Oscar the Grouch 1 oz Silver Coin now on offer from Provident Metals.
Proof-quality coins are known for their polished and mirrored finish that makes reliefs and colorized art stand out beautifully. The 2022 Proof Samoa Sesame Street Oscar the Grouch Silver Coin is a case in point, available in a limited mintage of only five thousand pieces that will appeal to fans, collectors, and investors. Provident Metals ships these coins, fully insured against loss or damage, each in their own themed trash-can-shaped casing and accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity.
The reverse side of the coin captures an iconic image of Oscar the Grouch emerging from the trash can he calls home, rendered lovingly in remarkable colorized detail. Above, it bears the inscription “OSCAR THE GROUCH,” while below, it carries the trademark and copyright for “Sesame Workshop.” The accompanying inscription “1oz Pure .999 Ag” proclaims the quality and weight of the piece’s silver content.
The Sesame Street logo dominates the coin’s obverse side. It’s accompanied by the Independent State of Samoa’s official coat of arms, along with the inscriptions “SAMOA 2022” and “5 dollars.”
Oscar the Grouch made his first appearance on the educational children’s show Sesame Street in 1969. Ever since, the much-beloved puppet character has been one of the show’s most recognizable faces, comically dedicated to being grouchy and complaining to everyone around him. Over the years, kids have learned about the Grouch’s dedicated fondness for trash, have seen him come within a hair of getting married to a fellow-grouch — the couple only called the wedding off out of the concern that they’d make each other too happy and lose their signature grouchiness — and generally adored his hilariously sarcastic view of life.
