December 7, 1941, was a date that President Franklin D. Roosevelt labeled as a date that will live in infamy. On that morning, the forces of Imperial Japan launched an unprovoked, surprise attack on the United States Navy Pacific Fleet at Pearl Harbor at Oahu, Hawaii. 2016 marked the 75th anniversary of the attack and the United States subsequent entrance into World War II.

Each 2016 1 oz Tuvalu Pearl Harbor Gold Coin available in this listing at JM Bullion earned a perfect certification from the PCGS. Coins in PR70 exhibit full, original mint luster and present with no detracting flaws of any kind. The included DCAM designation stands for deep-cameo and refers to the brilliance of the proof visuals on the coin. In particular, the design elements have a strong, frosted finish offset by the deeply-mirrored, clear background field.
The attack on Pearl Harbor started just before 8 AM local time as a massive Imperial Japanese fleet launched wave after wave of aircraft at the US Pacific Fleet at anchor in the harbor around Pearl Harbor. The United States Navy sustained heavy losses on the day, but enjoyed a major stroke of luck in that all of its aircraft carriers were currently out on maneuvers. This enabled the United States to somewhat quickly get on war footing in the Pacific Theater and eventually strike back at Imperial Japan.
Queen Elizabeth II is found on the obverse side of 2016-P Tuvalu Pearl Harbor Gold Coins. This design is the fourth-generation British effigy of the Queen created in 1998 by Ian Rank-Broadley. The right-profile portrait shown here includes the Girls of Great Britain and Ireland Tiara on the Queens head and featured on Australian coins from 1999 to 2018. It still features on the coinage of other Commonwealth nations in the South Pacific.
Japanese fighters commence the attack on battleship row at Pearl Harbor in the reverse design of 2016 1 oz Pearl Harbor Gold Coins. As the fighters fly low overhead, the battleships are sitting ducks for bombs and torpedoes launched from the Imperial Japanese planes.
