The folks running The Perth Mint Australia have really outdone themselves this time because it’s just been announced a series of special edition Simpsons collectible coins are on the way!

Simpsons fans can expect to see eight coins in total, all depicting an “iconic character or motif from the ever-popular primetime television series.”

“The Simpsons series consists of eight 1oz coins and a 2oz coin superbly struck from 99.99% pure silver,” the Perth Mint explained in a statement. 

“The first three coins in this exclusive offering, which includes a rare investment coin, was unveiled at the prestigious 47th World Money Fair in Berlin, Germany to a global audience of minting organisations, coin distributors, collectors and gift buyers.

“The sole bullion coin showcases the word “D’OH!” above Homer Simpson in his iconic catchphrase pose. A half-eaten glazed donut with sprinkles, Homer’s favourite treat, replaces the letter O in D’OH.”

Check it out:

 

“Completing the series in the coming months, the remaining coins will feature Marge, Bart, Lisa, Maggie and a Duff Beer can.”
