Perth Mint Design

The coin’s reverse portrays the word “D’OH!” above Homer in his iconic catchphrase pose. A half-eaten glazed donut with sprinkles, Homer’s favourite treat, replaces the letter O in D’OH. Also included in the design is The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark, Matt Groening’s signature, and a background of sprinkles from Homer’s famous donut.

The coin’s obverse portrays the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the monetary denomination, the weight and fineness, and the 2020 year date.
