Why purchase this 2021 Tuvalu Tears of the Moon 2 oz. Antiqued Silver coin?
This unusual artistic masterpiece from the Perth Mint is inspired by Incan mythology. The coin is a tribute to the Goddess of the Moon, Mama Quilla, who is revered for banishing the darkness of night with her light, and shedding tears of silver to the earth to be mined as a precious metal.
Remarkably Detailed Antiqued Design
Obverse: On the obverse, a clear window to the reverse is encircled by an array of Incan crosses, with the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II located above. Inscriptions include "2 OZ 9999 AG 2021," "2 DOLLARS," "TUVALU" and "QUEEN ELIZABETH II."
Reverse: The reverse features a highly stylized rendition of Mama Quilla in a seated position, with her hands posed as if holding a collection of silver tears. The tears (silver particles) are suspended in purified mineral oil, contained in a three-dimensional Perspex dome. The Perth Mint's "P" Mint mark is the only inscription.
Sensational Brilliant Uncirculated Coin
The 2021 Tuvalu 2 oz. Silver Tears of the Moon coin is considered to be in Brilliant Uncirculated (GEM BU) condition. The ungraded antiqued coin is presented in a display case shaped as the face of Mama Quilla, which opens like a drawer to reveal the coin. The case is housed in a handsome, dark blue box adorned with flocked Incan-style patterns.
