|The Very Highest Quality Tuvalu Coins...|
The $10 coin shown is a silver proof to commemorate the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme, and rarely for any coin bears the portrait of H.R.H. Prince Philip, The Duke of Edinburgh on the reverse. The inscription on the reverse reads
DUKE OF EDINBURGH'S AWARD 1956 - 1981
TUVALU TEN DOLLARS
Tuvalu issued its own coins for the first time only in 1976. Unlike many small countries, Tuvalu does issue coins for circulation, and not just commemoratives, even though its population is only about 9,000
We usually have in stock at least a few Tuvalu coins. The mintage figures tend to be quite low, although perhaps this is to expected.
