Australia is a continent rich in history, cultural diversity and unique habitats. The Perth Mint is pleased to announce the third designs of the series aptly titled, The Land Down Under. Featuring Captain James Cook, who on his first voyage alone, charted thousands of miles of Australia’s coastline with astonishing accuracy. He is remembered as a courageous individual and one of the foremost navigators of his age.
Australia has some of the world’s most spectacular and unspoilt scenery, with every season being more beautiful than the next. This beauty has been captured in brilliant colour on The Perth Mint’s Australian Seasons series. As the third release in this series, winter, which takes place in the months of June, July and August, brings much-needed rain, cooler temperatures and renewed growth.
The Perth Mint is pleased to announce the release of the stunning 2013 Discover Australia silver proof coin series. With five new 1oz designs for 2013, the coins feature the kangaroo, koala, kookaburra, platypus and emu.
The 2013 Young Collectors ‘Experience It!’ series features six coins which each portray an outdoor sport or leisure activity in which Australian kids love to partake, with surfing being the first fun release.
In conjunction with Australia Post, The Perth Mint is pleased to offer The Queens’ Coronation Stamp and Coin Cover. This release features two stunning aluminium bronze coins celebrating Queen Elizabeth II 60th Anniversary of Coronation and Queen Victoria 175th Anniversary of Coronation.
The Perth Mint and Australia Post also present the third release in the adorable Bush Babies II Stamp and Coin Cover series. The coin and stamp both feature an adorable baby platypus. The platypus is unique to Australia and lives beside freshwater rivers and lakes, where it creates burrows for shelter and protection.
