Fighter Plane Design
Escorting US bombers deep inside Germany and making a similarly notable contribution in the Pacific theatre, the P-51 Mustang's pivotal role during the latter half of the War persuaded many that it was one of the greatest US fighters ever built. The famous aircraft is depicted on the reverse of the coin against a coloured design element.
The reverse also incorporates The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark.

Issued as legal tender under the authority of the Government of Tuvalu, the coin’s obverse bears the Raphael Maklouf effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the 2008 year-date.
