The new exciting series of silver coins by Tuvalu features the fictional ships from literature and folklore we have heard or read about but never seen in reality. This coin of .999 pure silver has been named after the Gloria Scott from one of Sherlock Holmes short stories by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. The mintage is only 3 000 pieces worldwide.

The obverse of the Tuvalu coin displays the effigy of Her Majesty Elizabeth II. The inscriptions surrounding portrait include the Queen’s name, the face value of the coin, its metal fineness, issuing country and year.

The Gloria Scott, peacefully floating on the water, is beautifully struck on the reverse of this silver coin. The ship appears within the collection of Sherlock Holmes stories called “The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes,” published in 1894. The story dwells upon the first case Holmes ever undertook. What's particularly interesting with The Adventure of the Gloria Scott, is that the author presents some background on what influenced Holmes to become a detective. The inscription along the rim of the coin indicates its name. The Gloria Scott silver coin comes housed in a wooden case in the shape of a book and is sure to impress those collecting unique coins of high quality.
