In the Silver Age of Comic Books in the US, Marvel introduced readers to a character based on the Norse mythological god Thor. The superhero bore the same name and was created by editor-plotter Stan Lee, scripter Larry Lieber, and plotter Jack Kirby. Thor made his debut in issue number 83 of Journey into Mystery.
The character of Thor is referred to in Marvel Comics as the Asgardian god of thunder who uses his enchanted hammer Mjolnir to combat evil. The hammer gives him the power to fly and manipulate weather, but can only be wielded by Thor.
On the reverse of the 2018 1 oz Tuvalu Thor Marvel Series Silver Coin is the image of Thor originally created for Marvel Comics. Included in the design is the torso of Thor with a background of lightning crackling across the sky as he wields his mystical hammer to win the day.
The obverse of all Tuvalu Thor Marvel Series Silver Coins bears the portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty is featured here in a design created in 1998 by Ian Rank-Broadley for the Royal Mint. Used on British and commonwealth coins, this right-profile portrait is the fourth of Her Majesty used since her reign began in 1953.
Your 2018 1 oz Tuvalu Thor Marvel Series Silver Coin is available today in near-perfect condition according to the NGC. Coins with Mint State 69 grades have full, original mint luster with a maximum of two minor detracting flaws. These flaws are limited to minuscule contact marks or hairlines found only outside the primary focal points of the coin’s surface.
Perth Mint issues the Marvel Series coins, with a planned total of six designs. Thor is the second release following Spiderman, which launched the series from the mint in Western Australia in 2017.
