No challenge is too great for our designers, and the first coin in the Australian Opal Series is another example of our innovative craftsmanship. The design incorporates an inner panel detailed in pure Australian opal, with an outer panel created in struck silver.

Not to be outshone, the highly anticipated Discover Australia silver coins are also released this month and they feature more iconic Australian animals.

For lovers of naval history, the fourth release in the popular Ships That Changed The World series, depicts the USS Constitution. Monickered ‘Old Ironsides’, the vessel is still a fully-commissioned naval ship of the United States.

Sports lovers too, will be thrilled with our Australian Olympic Team releases (Australia Only).

  1. A neat idea with those nocturnal creature on the opal coin series.
    I only hope that a platypus is nocturnal enough! 😉

  2. Seventh year of the Discover Australia series.
    In my opinion the artistic content (the Bellotti’s design) of the previous three years series stays unequalled.
    I really hope that next year the Mint will be back to that track.

  3. Hi Blog Team.
    Is the 2012 Berlin Dragon only available from Perth?

    It seems that the normal Perth Mint distributors don’t have the coin available.
