Exterior Decoration: The reverse of the coin, by the designer Aleysha Howarth, features an interpretation of an ancient world map with mythical sea creatures, as the Kraken, a colossal octopus, a Mermaid, Zeus, Aeolus and a Sea Serpent. A golden coloured compass is set into the middle of the coin and features an engraved rim. The reverse of the coin bear the inscription: “2oz 999 SILVER” - the Silver fineness and weight. The obverse of the coin features a decorative border that circles the back of the compass, which features a star pattern (Compass Rose). On the bottom, the inscription: “QUEEN ELIZABETH II” - the name of the Queen. On the left side, the inscription: “2 DOLLARS” - the face value and on the right side, the inscriptions: “TUVALU” - the issue country and “2017” - the issue year.

Now here's a proof that is literally more than just a coin! This 2017 Two Ounce Silver Compass Antiqued Proof has a genuine working compass in the center! Visible on the reverse of this $2 legal tender Tuvalu proof, the face of the gold-colored compass is surrounded by a stylized ancient world map featuring Poseidon, the god of the sea, a two-masted sailing ship, a sea monster and other creatures of the deep. Flip to the obverse of this proof, and you'll find a small image of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II above an intricate compass rose, along with the coin's denomination and date. You'll also notice the engraved rim as you navigate around this uniquely designed proof.

Struck in a hefty two ounces of 99.9% pure silver, each proof has been individually "antiqued," giving the coin the appearance of a "found artifact" from the ancient past. Your proof will arrive in its original Perth Mint packaging, including a colorful box, an attractive clamshell case and an official certificate of authenticity. With an extremely low mintage of only 2,500 proofs, this combination of unique concept and superb execution could sell out fast.
