Money made even more attractive thanks to Marilyn

By  |  0 Comments

Images on minted coins often have serious, regal or political connotations but the Perth Mint has decided to lighten things up a little with the recent release of an attractive coin to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the untimely passing of Marilyn Monroe. 

Made of 99.9% pure silver in proof quality, the Marilyn Monroe coin depicts an image of the actress set against a background of film emblazoned with stars. The design also includes a representation of Marilyn’s signature and The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark.

Beautifully packaged and priced at $110, the 2012 Marilyn Monroe coin is available from The Perth Mint on toll free 1800 098 817 (Australia) or visit for more information.
