The 2023 Typefaces Sherlock Holmes 1 oz Silver Coin is a coin with a mystery. The star of the coin is the figure you can make out through the text-Sherlock Holmes. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s famous detective has his trademark hat and pipe in this rather unusual image that is made up entirely of text. The text is shaded lighter and darker to create the image. This design is beautiful in .999 fine silver. 


Key features:

  • Made of 1 Troy Ounce .999 fine silver
  • Face value of $5 backed by the Cook Islands
  • Very limited mintage of 1887


Sherlock Holmes is perhaps the world’s most famous detective and yet he is a fictional character. With so many stories, movies, and television shows, it sure feels like he is real. He has gone on to inspire so many of the detective tropes that we see in entertainment as well. The world was first introduced to Sherlock Holmes in the story, ‘A Study in Scarlet’ published in 1887. As a tribute to the premiere of Sherlock Holmes, the mintage of this coin is set at 1887. 


On the obverse is Ian Rank-Broadley’s classic depiction of Elizabeth II. Here she is facing to the right with a look of determination on her face. She is wearing a crown and her Royal Jewelry. Above her head is ‘ELIZABETH II’ and ‘COOK ISLANDS”. Below her image is ‘2023’. 


The reverse side of the coin has the image of Sherlock Holmes embedded in the text that covers the whole side. He is shown here in his trademark hat and pipe. At the bottom is his ‘SHERLOCK HOLMES’ in script font. A true Sherlock Holmes fan would realize the words running across the coin aren’t just random words but are lines from The Hound of the Baskervilles, perhaps the most famous Sherlock Holmes case. 


The 2023 Typefaces Sherlock Holmes 1 oz Silver Coin is a great coin for anyone who loves Sherlock Holmes or beautiful, unique designs. Get yours today.
