One of the oldest traditions of the classic animated sitcom The Simpsons is a Halloween episode, taking place outside the show’s normal continuity and full of satirical takes on “spooky” themes that place the Simpsons family in a science fiction, horror, or supernatural setting. Often the highest-rated episodes of their seasons, the various “Treehouse of Horror” episodes often lampooned current trends, shows, and movies in popular culture. Ever since the very first episode aired in 1990, there have been thirty-two entries in this Halloween-themed series-within-a-series to date, and the tradition is still going strong. Struck by the prestigious Perth Mint, the 2022 1 oz Colorized Tuvalu The Simpsons Treehouse of Horror Proof Silver Coin celebrates these episodes and is now available for online purchase from JM Bullion.

The Simpsons is famous for its consistently inventive opening sequences, and the openings of the Treehouse of Horror episodes are no different. Occasionally lampooning the pre-movie warnings that came with old 1930s screen productions of Frankenstein, parodying Alfred Hitchcock’s pre-movie monologues or the preludes to episodes of the old horror anthology series Night Gallery, the openings have gotten further into the unexpected with each season. The famous “swarming-the-couch” openings from traditional Simpsons episodes got their own Halloween treatment, too, and this collectible shows a famous example.
