This beautiful coin features the great southern Australian continent in stunning Australian mother of pearl.
The Australian coastline extends for approximately 34,000 kilometers. It is bordered in the west by the Indian Ocean and to the east by the Pacific Ocean. Tropical waters of the Timor, Arafura, and Coral Seas lap the north coast, while the cold waters of the Southern Ocean lie to the south. Over millennia, Aboriginal Australians forged deep cultural connections not just with their lands but also with the surrounding seas and the extraordinary diversity of wildlife they support.
Struck by The Perth Mint from 1oz of 99.99% pure silver in Proof quality, the coin is issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965.
The Perth Mint will release no more than 5,000 of the Great Southern Land 2021 1oz Silver Proof Mother Of Pearl Coin.
