Item:352499191327This is a fancy and artistic coin. The listing is for a 2009 Battle of Poltava 1 Oz Silver (99.99%) Bullion Coin. The coin is from Tuvalu. Tuvalu is an island about halfway between Hawaii and Australia. It is the 4th smallest country in the world. It is part of the British Commonwealth. Tuvalu is an environmentally-troubled island. Climate change, the degradation of their coral reefs, rising sea levels, increased wave action, erosion of beaches, loss of fresh water aquifer, and many more issues are putting this island's future in jeopardy. Tuvalu uses Australian currency. Tuvalu is famous for its silver bullion commemorative proof coins. Because of the island's small size, diminishing population, troubled environment, and other factors as well---the country has made huge efforts to boost its economy by the creation of beautiful coins. Tuvalu used the Perth Australia Mint for the manufacture of its coins. (Side note: Tuvalu is also famous for its beautiful stamps). The coin is a 2009 1 Oz. Silver Bullion Coin to Commemorate the 300th Anniversary of the Battle of Poltava. The coin commemorates the 300th anniversary of the "landmark Russian victory at the Battle of Poltava." (from the paperwork included with the coin) The coin "portrays The Bronze Horseman, a statue of Peter the Great. It also features a coloured representation of Russian cavalry at the famous encounter." (from the paperwork included with the coin) The paperwork with the coin provides more information about this battle between Russia and Sweden for supremacy in the Baltic region. "The battle's outcome ended Sweden's status as a major power and signaled the emergence of Imperial Russia as the dominant force in Eastern Europe." The battle took place in 1709. The coin is 1 Troy ounce of 99.99% fine silver. The colored scene on the coin is very striking. It is from the Perth Mint. It comes with a certificate of authenticity.
