2014 Charlie Chaplin 1oz Silver Proof Lenticular Coin

British actor and filmmaker Sir Charles Spencer ‘Charlie’ Chaplin KBE is regarded as the master of mime. As a comic genius and the most iconic artist of the silent era, his screen character The Tramp became a global phenomenon, providing decades of laughter to audiences all over the world.

His stage persona of The Tramp was a display of contradiction – baggy pants and a tight coat, a small hat and large shoes, a bowler hat and bamboo cane, and a small moustache to add age but not hide his expressions.

In 2014, there are many reasons to celebrate cinema’s most iconic gentleman. It is the 100th anniversary since Charlie Chaplin appeared in his first film, it is the 100th anniversary of The Tramp making his screen debut, and it is also the 125th anniversary of the artist’s birth.

To commemorate this legend of the silent screen, The Perth Mint is proud to release a stunning 1oz silver proof lenticular coin, issued as legal tender under the authority of the Government of Tuvalu.

The Perth Mint will release no more than 5,000 of the 2014 Charlie Chaplin – 100 Years of Laughter 1oz Silver Proof Lenticular Coins.

With the use of lenticular lenses, the reverse of the coin depicts Charlie Chaplin’s onscreen character, The Tramp, jauntily walking as depicted in the closing scenes of the 1928 silent movie, The Circus. The imagery is bordered by the inscription CHARLIE CHAPLIN, and The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark also appears in the design.

The Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the monetary denomination and the 2014 year-date are shown on the coin’s obverse.

This coin is housed in a latex display case with illustrated shipper, and is accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
