A decade ago, Peaky Blinders made its debut, swiftly establishing itself as one of the worlds
most beloved dramas. It garnered widespread critical praise and became a cultural phenomenon. In
honour of the series’ 10th anniversary Niue has crafted a commemorative tribute, carefully
tailored for both devoted Peaky Blinders enthusiasts and discerning coin collectors alike. A
dedicated series of coins paying homage to the iconic Peaky Blinders.

influential member of the Shelby family, Thomas Shelby. On the coin’s reverse, Tommy is

elegance, alluding to his enduring sense of style. Atop his head rests a flat cap, emblematic of the
era in which he thrives. Behind him, a discerning eye will catch Tommy’s distinctive silhouette,
smoking a cigarette. The background wallpaper features a pocket-watch suspended from a chain, a

On the coin’s obverse, set against the urban backdrop of a working-class neighbourhood in
Birmingham, three pivotal characters come into view: Thomas, his brother Arthur, and their aunt
Polly. On the right side of the coin we see the official 10th anniversary logo.
