When The Simpsons first premiered as a half-hour animated sitcom in 1989, it swiftly became a global phenomenon in popular culture. Even so, no-one yet guessed that it would become the longest-running scripted primetime show in the history of television, still running more than thirty years later and seen in 27 languages in every corner of the globe. Its cast of characters are recognizable everywhere, offering up zany humor and a satirical take on American life, and perhaps the most famous of them all is the buffoonish but lovable patriarch of the Simpsons family, Homer.

A safety inspector at a nuclear plant who is hilariously ill-suited to the job, Homer Simpson’s antics have involved his family in countless comedic adventures. Most of these unfold in the fictional town of Springfield, a name chosen by series creator Matt Groening both because it’s one of America’s most common town and city names — appearing in no less than 29 states — as well as being the name of the fictitious Middle American town in Father Knows Best. Homer, to be sure, rarely knows best, which is precisely what makes him such an enduring comedic icon.
The 2022 Tuvalu Silver The Simpsons Mini Series Homer Simpson Coin is a shaped and colorized coin containing a full ounce of pure silver. It ships in a box inside a clear, stand-up acrylic display case. Each coin is fully insured by JM Bullion and comes with its own Certificate of Authenticity.
The coin’s obverse side features the famous Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of the late Queen Elizabeth II, confirming it as legal tender. It’s accompanied by the inscriptions “QUEEN ELIZABETH II,” “TUVALU,” “1 oz 9999 Ag,” “1 DOLLAR,” “2022,” and a copyright showing it as an officially-licensed product.
The reverse side’s shaped and colorized representation of the hapless but beloved comedic hero presents him in an adorable Chibi “big head” caricature style. He’s wearing his standard costume of blue jeans and a white shirt.
