This Proof Silver coin features a photographic image of Marilyn Monroe set against a background of film and stars, design by Aleysha Howarth.

Marilyn Monroe is the subject of this special silver commemorative, which is sure to captivate her many fans.
Monroe (1926 – 1962) was born Norma Jeane Mortenson, but baptized Norma Jeane Baker. She was an American actress and model who graced the screen with her luminous beauty.
Considered the epitome of the ‘blond bombshell’, Monroe began her career as a model, which led to a film contract in 1946. Her early film appearances were minor, but by 1959, she had attained several leading roles and was being hailed by critics. In her relatively short career, she won both a BAFTA award (1957) and a Golden Globe award (1959).
Monroe’s film career and troubled life have been well documented and controversy still surrounds her untimely passing in 1962. What is certain however, is that Monroe remains a ‘megawatt’ of the silver screen.

It’s the 2nd time I purchased a novelty or non-bullion coin and was pleasantly surprised. If you’re a Marilyn Monroe fan, for the price, it’s worth getting. It’s definitely cool. Box and certificate are all numbered and it’s packed really well.
