Marilyn Monroe™ is the subject of a special silver commemorative released this month, with the coin’s reverse design sure to captivate her fans.

The final coin in the Ships That Changed The World series celebrates the Cutty Sark. This wonderful vessel, reopened in April 2012, can still be seen at Greenwich, London in her restored glory.

For lovers of tradition, it is hard to ignore the 2012 Perth Mint Gold Proof Australian Sovereign. It might be that this prestigious release is that special gift you’ve been looking for?

Of keen interest to our young collectors will be the release of the next Animal Athletes coin featuring the incredible Monarch Butterfly – the migration of this butterfly is a natural wonder.

These are just some of the great new releases celebrated this month.

  1. just wonder, if there is a fave coin.. ur website being down, and then bump! The coin is unavailable.. so amazing..

  2. I was very excited to purchase the Chinese Dragon but by the time I was able to load the site and checkout, it said unavailable. I am very disappointed and hope that the coin will be available on the site again. I have told so many people about this coin release and I am sad to say that I have disappointed them all. Please let me know if they will be coming back on the site as available.

    Thank you.


  3. I am not too thrilled that the site was down for several hours during the night including the time at which the new coins were to go for sale and now the Chinese Dragon of Legend is unavailable/sold out.

  4. Dear Blog Team

    Australia Koala – 2012 5oz Silver Proof Coin

    Is the full mintage of 5,000 coins being offered in the special Perth Mint customised coloured illustration shipper with coa?

    Last year Perth only packaged 300 coins in special packaging and a numbered coa, the rest 4,700 were slabbed coins.

    Could you please advise?

    Also – the website has an anomaly it says: (Two Koalas) This may be an overlooked error.

    The coin is housed in a presentation case and customised shipper featuring a coloured illustration of two koalas. A numbered Certificate of Authenticity also accompanies this release.

    Thanks for any updates at this very busy time for Perth.

    Kind regards

    Billy Black Smith
