The Homer Simpson 1/2oz silver coin’s reverse portrays a coloured image of Homer Simpson smiling in front of his workplace, a nuclear plant, as it expels smoke in the background.
First introduced in 1987, The Simpson family originally appeared in 30-second segments on The Tracey Ullman Show. Two years later, The Simpsons premiered as a half-hour series and instantly became a worldwide pop-culture phenomenon, now seen in 60 countries in 20 languages. In 2018, The Simpsons reached an incredible milestone becoming the longest-running primetime scripted show in television history.
The coin’s reverse portrays a coloured image of Homer Simpson smiling in front of his workplace, a nuclear plant, as it expels smoke in the background. The design incorporates The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark and Matt Groening’s signature.
