The hourglass is a simple device for tracking the passage of time. Believed to have been developed in the 8th century, the hourglass consists of two glass bulbs that are arranged vertically and connected by a narrow neck that helps regulate the flow of fine sand through the two bulbs from the upper into the lower.
The obverse of the 2021 Antique Tuvalu Silver Hourglass Coin features a portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. With the central field of these coins open on both sides and occupied by an hourglass suspended within, the portrait of Her Majesty is shown at the top of the design field in the popular right-profile portrait that Ian Rank-Broadley created in 1998. This design shows the Queen wearing the Girls of Great Britain and Ireland Tiara.
On the reverse side of 2021 2 oz Antique Tuvalu Hourglass Coins is the same view of the hourglass at the center. Around the edge of the design field on this side, you will notice a number of different astrological symbols that range from the sun to the moon, with various phases of the moon included around the central design field.
Perth Mint opened in 1899 and was designed to operate as the third Royal Mint branch facility in Australia. However, Australian federation in 1902 changed the future of the Perth Mint in the decades to come. Today, it is a state-owned entity of Western Australia.
