Why buy this 1 oz Silver Antiqued 2019 $1 Tuvalu Laughing Buddha?

Collectors looking for a truly unique piece for their collections would do well to pick up this Antiqued Silver Laughing Buddha. The coin celebrates the figure, who represents good luck in Chinese culture, by depicting him in carved jade. Part of a mintage of just 3,000 pieces, this coin was struck from 1 oz of .9999 fine silver at the Perth Mint. That mint is represented by its iconic "P" mint mark, which is recognized as a sign of quality around the world. It appears just to the left of the Buddha on the reverse.

Stunning Laughing Buddha Design by Natasha Muhl

At the center of the obverse is Ian Rank-Broadley's famous right-side portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. The monarch wears a tiara and earrings. Her effigy sits against a radial pattern backdrop. Her name, "ELIZABETH II," is inscribed along the rim at the top. It is joined on the rim by several other inscriptions. From left to right, they read, "1 OZ 9999 AG," "2019," "TUVALU," and "1 DOLLAR."

On the reverse, a jade Laughing Buddha sits atop a pile of coins in a design by Natasha Muhl. The coins are traditional Chinese pieces that have square circles in the middle. This feature ensured that people could carry them on strings. Arching over the portly figure is the inscription "LAUGHING BUDDHA."

Impeccable MS70 with Pacific Rim Label

According to the experts at Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC), this coin is perfect as seen under 5x magnification. That is why they awarded it their highest grade, Mint State 70. This grade comes on a Pacific Rim label that offers an aerial view of an archipelago.
