Great Composers Frédéric Chopin Silver Coin

Great Composers Frédéric Chopin Silver Coin

Born in Poland 200 years ago on 1 March 1810, Chopin was a gifted child performer who played his first public concert at the age of eight. After studying at the Warsaw Conservatory, he embarked on an extensive European tour, arriving in Paris in 1831, where he earned enough income as a piano tutor to spend the majority of his time composing. Chopin’s mazurkas, polonaises, preludes, études, nocturnes, ballades, impromptus and many other works have been described as the richest and most influential legacy left to the piano repertoire by any individual composer. He died on 17 October 1849, a victim of tuberculosis. The coin is struck by The Perth Mint from 1oz of 99.9% pure silver. The coin’s reverse depicts a representation of Frédéric Chopin, a treble clef and music notes. As well as The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark, the design includes the inscription ‘Frédéric Chopin 1810 – 1849’. Issued as legal tender under the authority of the Government of Tuvalu, the coin bears the Raphael Maklouf effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the 2010 year date on its obverse. The Perth Mint will release no more than 5,000 of these coins. Each coin is accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity. Each coin is housed in a presentation display case and customised shipper.
