Coin Story

Born in Poland 200 years ago on 1 March 1810, Chopin was a gifted child performer who played his first public concert at the age of eight. After studying at the Warsaw Conservatory, he embarked on an extensive European tour, arriving in Paris in 1831, where he earned enough income as a piano tutor to spend the majority of his time composing. Chopin’s mazurkas, polonaises, preludes, études, nocturnes, ballades, impromptus and many other works have been described as the richest and most influential legacy left to the piano repertoire by any individual composer. He died on 17 October 1849, a victim of tuberculosis.

Reverse Design

The coin’s reverse depicts a representation of Frédéric Chopin, a treble clef and music notes. As well as The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark, the design includes the inscription ‘Frédéric Chopin 1810 – 1849’

Obverse Design

Issued as legal tender under the authority of the Government of Tuvalu, the coin bears the Raphael Maklouf effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the 2010 year-date on its obverse.
