Perth Mint Coin Profiles – Tuvalu 2019 Suicide Squad – Harley Quinn 1oz Silver Proof Coin

Harley Quinn is known for being a frequent lover and sidekick of Batman’s arch nemesis The Joker.

As The Joker’s psychiatrist at Gotham’s home for the criminally insane, Arkham Asylum, Dr. Harleen Quinzel developed an infatuation for the insane villain, who manipulated her into madness. She inevitably helped him escape and devoted her life to making The Joker happy, becoming Harley Quinn and often dressing in a harlequin costume.

Athletic, agile and dangerously unpredictable in a fight, Harley Quinn is a formidable opponent in her own right.

The 2016 film Suicide Squad, directed by David Ayers, explored Harley Quinn’s devotion to The Joker and the origins of the dysfunctional relationship. Portrayed by Australian actress Margot Robbie, Suicide Squad’s Harley Quinn remained devoted to him even after he left her for dead when captured by Batman.

Struck by The Perth Mint from 1oz of 99.99% pure silver, the coin is issued as legal tender under the authority of the Government of Tuvalu.

The Perth Mint will release no more than 5,000 of the Suicide Squad – Harley Quinn 2019 1oz Silver Proof Coin.

Design

The coin’s reverse design depicts a colored image of Suicide Squad’s Harley Quinn smirking with a baseball bat over her shoulder. Behind her, an illustrated background depicts Harley Quinn’s stylized icon from the film. Also included in the design is the Suicide Squad logo, the inscription ‘HARLEY QUINN’ and The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark.

The coin’s obverse depicts the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the weight and fineness, the 2019 year-date and the monetary denomination.

Presentation
