2014 Charlie Chaplin The Tramp 1/4oz Gold Proof Coin

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 1/4oz gold proof coin, issued as legal tender under the authority of the Government of Tuvalu.

The Perth Mint will release no more than 1,000 of the 2014 Charlie Chaplin 100 Years of Laughter 1/4oz Gold Proof Coins.

The coin’s reverse depicts a portrait of Charlie Chaplin’s onscreen character, The Tramp, bordered by the inscriptions THE TRAMP and 100 YEARS OF LAUGHTER. 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 prestigious black box, incorporating a mini MP4 player and screen which plays a short clip of his 1928 silent movie The Circus, accompanied by music when the lid of the case is opened. It is housed in an illustrated shipper and accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
