2 oz 2015 150th Anniversary of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland Clock Silver Coin | Perth Mint
Buy with Confidence
This beautiful collectible features fascinating packaging from one of the best loved children's stories of all time! There is a working clock embedded in the centre of the coin, and the silver features hand applied antique finishing.
Alice's Adventures in Wonderland was completed in 1865, written by Charles Lutwidge Dodgson under the nom de plume of Lewis Carroll. The story has been enormously influential in popular culture and literature, and has been in print continuously since 1865.
The obverse of the coin has the traditional effigy of Queen Elizabeth II in a pattern along with three roses surrounding the back of the clock.
The reverse features Alice, a number of playing cards and the Cheshire Cat who is, of course, sporting a huge grin. The face of the clock has the White Rabbit in the centre with "Oh dear! Oh dear! I shall be late!" around the outside of the clock.
With only 2500 of these coins being produced, they will always be in demand by both collectors and Alice in Wonderland aficionados alike.
ABOUT THE PERTH MINT
The Perth Mint opened in 1899 as the British Royal Mint's 3rd branch in Australia. The historical Hay Street location handled gold refining until moving to a modern facility in April 1990. Ownership of the mint was transferred to the Government of Western Australia in July of 1970. Under an agreement with the Commonwealth Treasury, they were empowered to mint and market gold, silver, and platinum as Australian legal tender to investors and collectors worldwide. Today, they are amongst the elite world mints whose pure gold, silver, and platinum items are trusted without question. Items such as the Australian Nugget, Silver Coin Series (Kangaroo, Kookaburra, Koala, and Platypus to name a few), as well as the Australian Lunar Gold and Silver Coin Series are extensively sought after by bullion investors worldwide.
This coin and clock ship in a full colour graphic box. The coin is held in a black and white see-through display case.
