On the reverse of the 2020 Tuvalu The Simpsons Homer Gold Coin is the image of the family patriarch as he blurts out his trademark phrase. Whether he’s showcased his slow wit, been outsmarted by Bart, or simply blundered into an awkward situation, Homer always blurts out “D’oh!.” The signature of series creator Matt Groening is featured on this side of the coin along with the “P” mint mark.
The obverse face of 2020 1 oz Tuvalu The Simpsons Homer Gold Coins includes the 1998 effigy of Queen Elizabeth II created by Ian Rank-Broadley. This design began to appear on British coins starting in 1998 and since 1999 has appeared across the Commonwealth nations. Today, it remains the popular choice of South Pacific Commonwealth nations such as Tuvalu and Niue.
All 2020 Tuvalu Homer Gold Coins were produced by the Perth Mint. Founded in 1899, it was the third and final Royal Mint of England facility on the continent and is the oldest operating mint in Australia. Today, it operates independently of the Royal Australian Mint as a state-owned entity of the government of Western Australia.
