February’s bulletin includes the first release from our new Gods of Olympus 2oz silver coin series. Befitting such a dramatic figure, the high relief design is struck in a rimless format and features an antique finish for a truly impressive result.

This bulletin also features the latest coin from a popular established series, as well as the initial release from a new series that looks equally strong.

The Tasmanian Devil is the fifth native animal to appear in our well-loved Australian Opal series, which previously depicted the koala, wombat, kangaroo and pygmy possum in similarly stunning style.

For the first coin in our heart-warming Mother’s Love series, however, we’ve chosen a lioness. The beautiful design reflects her affection for a young cub – with similar portrayals featuring four other world animals and their offspring to follow.

ANZAC day approaching and you’ll find a new commemorative Australian $1 coin which this year pays special tribute to the Royal Australian Navy Submarine Service.

As well as the latest design from The Land Down Under Series, there are carded additions to the Australian Koala silver coin series and two new releases celebrating the Year of the Horse.
