Perth ANDA Money Expo takes place at Domain Stadium, Subiaco this weekend. Doors are open to the public from 10am on both Saturday 11 and Sunday 12 February. A superb opportunity for enthusiastic collectors, as well as anyone curious to learn more about a huge variety of coins and banknotes, entry is by gold coin donation.
Remarkable 1899 pattern
Certain to draw a crowd, an historic Perth Mint half sovereign will be on display care of rare coin dealer CoinWorks. Valued at more than $500,000, the pattern (a trial coin made for evaluation purposes) is the only known one struck from the die dated 1899, the first year of The Perth Mint, and represents a unique part of Western Australia’s minting heritage.
Great reasons to attend
Do you know what’s lurking in your drawers and jars? With so many coin specialists and accredited experts on hand, you’re invited to bring along your old coins, military medals, and pieces of ‘shrapnel’, for an instant valuation. You never know your luck!
Younger members of the family can take part in the popular ‘Five Cent Forage’ – featuring a pile of 10,000 five cent pieces with every date between 1966 and 2016.
Enjoying a day at the Expo will also give you the chance to win amazing prizes donated by The Perth Mint, including a 1oz silver proof coin from our Anzac Spirit 100th Anniversary Coin Series, and this year’s remarkably rare Money Expo Special.
2017 Year of the Rooster 2oz Silver Proof Coloured Coin
With a limited mintage of only 1,000, the Perth ANDA Money Expo Special features our spectacular Year of the Rooster design in colour. Struck from 2oz of 99.99% pure silver in proof quality, it’s housed in a display case and themed box-shipper featuring the ANDA logo alongside the dates of the Perth event.
As a special incentive for collectors, the coin is available on The Perth Mint stand for the duration of the two-day event for the discounted price of $169 – a saving of $10.
