Do you know that Barbie doll or Barbara Millicent Roberts, celebrates her 50th anniversary in year 2009, and The Perth Mint released a 50th Anniversary of Barbie™ 1oz Silver Proof Coin to mark the occasion. The coin’s reverse depicts classic images of Barbie™ on a background featuring coloured highlights in pink. The design also incorporates the Barbie™ 50th anniversary logo and The Perth Mint's 'P' mint mark. The Perth Mint is celebrating the 50th anniversary of Barbie™, one of the hottest selling toys and collectables in the world, with an exclusive commemorative coin aimed at a wide range of fans – from those who enjoy memories of the doll they played with as a child, to the serious collector fascinated by her fashion, accessories and entourage of friends.


Barbie is a fashion doll manufactured by the American toy-company Mattel, Inc. and launched in March 1959. American businesswoman Ruth Handler (1916-2002) is credited with the creation of the doll using a German doll called Bild Lilli as her inspiration. Mattel estimates that there are well over 100,000 avid Barbie collectors. Ninety percent are women, at an average age of 40, purchasing more than twenty Barbie dolls each year. Forty-five percent of them spend upwards of $1000 a year.

Issued as legal tender under the authority of the Government of Tuvalu, the coin portrays the Raphael Maklouf effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the 2009 year-date on the obverse. Each coin is housed in a pink presentation case featuring the Barbie™ anniversary logo on the lid, and an illustrated shipper. Only 20,000 of the coin mintage for worldwide collector accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.


About the Perth Mint

The Perth Mint, wholly-owned by the State Government of Western Australia, is the official issuer of the Australian Federal Government's Gold and Silver Bullion Coin Program. The Mint opened in 1899 in response to the discovery of rich gold deposits in Coolgardie and Kalgoorlie. It was Australia's third branch of Britain's Royal Mint - the others being the Sydney Mint and the Melbourne Mint (both closed).

The Perth Mint remained under Britain's jurisdiction until 1 July 1970, when ownership transferred to the State Government of Western Australia.

In 2003, The Perth Mint officially opened an 8,400 square metre state-of-the-art manufacturing facility next door to its original limestone building. Dominating the Mint's heritage precinct, these two important buildings are powerful symbols of more than 100 years of minting excellence in Western Australia.
