The compass is an ancient tool that was, and still is, used for navigation and orientation. A magnetic compass gives an individual their position relative to the magnetic field of the Earth, allowing people to navigate the four cardinal directions of north, south, east, and west.
These unique 2017 2 oz Antique Tuvalu Silver Compass Coins feature a gold-plated compass in the center of the design, which includes a design field surrounding the compass that reflects the ancient maps of the world. Included in the design are depictions of ancient sea creatures and other mythical monsters.
On the obverse of the 2017 2 oz Antique Tuvalu Silver compass Coin you’ll find the compass, which is visible on both sides of the coin. Above the compass is the right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. The fourth-generation depiction, this was created by Ian Rank-Broadley in 1998.
