One of the most enduringly popular American entertainers of the 20th century, John Wayne was born on 26 May 1907. Nicknamed ‘the Duke’, he was a staple of the Western film genre and starred in, directed, and produced more than 170 movies in a career spanning 50 years. Officially licensed, this precious metal collector coin depicts an image of John Wayne wearing his trademark cowboy hat and bandana set against a rural Western backdrop. Also included in the design is a border with stars reminiscent of the American flag. Struck by The Perth Mint from 1/4oz of 99.99% pure gold, no more than 1,000 gold coins will be issued.
