One of the most enduringly popular American entertainers of the 20th century, John Wayne was born Marion Robert Morrison on 26 May 1907.
Nicknamed ‘the Duke’, he was a staple of the Western film genre and starred in, directed and produced more than 170 movies in a career spanning 50 years.
This officially licensed John Wayne Coin depicts a coloured image of John Wayne mounted on a horse wearing his trademark cowboy hat and bandana. The imagery overlays a representation of saguaros, a tree-like cactus plant. As well as the official John Wayne logo and The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark, the reverse includes the inscription ‘TOMORROW HOPES WE HAVE LEARNED SOMETHING FROM YESTERDAY’.
The coin is presented in a special John Wayne branded case within a themed shipper and is accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
