Cutty Sark

The Tuvalu legal tender coin is limited to a mintage of only 5,000 and comes packaged in a wonderfully themed shipper with numbered Certificate of Authenticity.

Previous Releases: Santa Maria (sold out), Golden Hind, Mayflower (unavailable), USS Constitution

The famous Scottish poet, Robbie Burns, created a character called Nannie Dee in his poem Tam o’ Shanter (1791). Ms Dee wore a paisley linen sark or nightgown that she had outgrown, which explains why it was too short, or cutty. The erotic vision of Ms Dee dancing in such a short undergarment caused the central character, Tam, to call, “Weel done, cutty sark!” This became a popular catch-phrase and thus the ship was named.

Struck from 1oz of 99.9% pure silver in proof quality, the coin’s reverse depicts a representation of the Cutty Sark in full sail set against a coloured globe map.
