Really really neat but one hell of a premium for 2oz, when they do such awesome work they need to do them on 5oz and be able to cut back on the premium.

looks pretty neat and unique. Not seen an actual clock coin from them before..

coincidental enough, shortly after i ordered and posted this OP, perth mint qty was immediately unavaliable..

Looks pretty nice, legal tender in Tuvalu.

I was wondering, does it have a functional clock build in?

A Fully functional clock is built-into the 2oz silver antiqued coin, as per description in their site. It's not mentioned if the clock is gold-plated or not, so I guess it's not. Seems like a tiny clock small enough sized like the size of a watch

It looks very cool. I've seen a few similar things like this before and think they're really neat.
What was the reason they went with Alice and wonderland though? I mean it seems like a pretty random theme to go with.
What I like about it is that it's something I'd openly have on display at home or in the office unlike having just a silver coin displayed in a presentation box. Those are more likely to end up in a collection in a box out of view.

probably no one would realise the clock is also a legal tender coin, maybe at most they notice is the 2oz silver text.

Oh wow awesome, I just assumed it could't be a fully functioning clock but that is really awesome! Cool piece!

It's for the 150th anniversary of Alice In Wonderland. I believe I've read that the Perth Mint is doing a few other coins with a similar theme, but I could be wrong (I read a lot about silver/coins sometimes when bored and end up surfing through different links).

As far as a valuation: Perth Mint products are very finely made and known for quality and purity of the precious metals used. Their smaller mintage/limited edition stuff usually does well as far as appreciating over time. I would say you'd probably be able to sell it for a profit in the future, but don't know how much profit it will be because it is already a higher-premium item. Perhaps in the future when and if the silver spot price rises substantially again. That + collector value might pay off.
Either way, it should be a cool product; if you're into it I'm sure you'll enjoy it. That is very cool the coin has a working clock on it, sort of like a silver pocket watch-coin.
