Description

Celebrated all around the world, birthdays are the perfect opportunity for friends and family to come together with their loved ones.

It is not known exactly where and when birthday celebrations and traditions such as birthday cake originated, however some of the earliest known festivities are said to have occurred in Egypt with reference to the Pharaoh’s birthday, while ancient Romans were the first to throw birthday parties for non-religious figures. Contemporary birthday cakes are said to have originated in Germany in the late 18th century where people celebrated the birthdays of young children with ‘kinderfeste’.

Struck by The Perth Mint from 2oz of 99.99% pure silver in proof quality, the coin is issued as legal tender under the authority of the Government of Tuvalu.

The Perth Mint will release no more than 1,500 of the Birthday Wishes 2018 2oz Silver Proof Coin

The coin’s reverse design features a birthday cake and ‘Happy Birthday’ written in eleven languages (English, Russian, German, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, French, Italian, Spanish, Hindi and Polish).

Displayed in a classic presentation case, the coin is delivered in a delightful themed shipper with a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
