Lighting the way this month is the vivid Diwali Festival coin from July’s new release bulletin.
Celebrated by millions of Hindus, Sikhs, Jains and some Buddhists the world over, Diwali is an ancient five day ‘festival of lights’ and is considered one of the happiest holidays in India and Nepal.
The colourful Lakshmi, goddess of wealth, health, fortune and prosperity is superbly depicted on this 1oz coin struck from 99.99% pure silver.
For the many fans of Australian coins, July welcomes the 2017 Australian Koala Gold Coin series, featuring a new design across four 99.99% pure gold coins.
Celebrating Australia’s most beloved marsupial, each coin features an iconic koala resting on the soft grass beneath a eucalyptus tree.
Each stunning coin is issued with a limited mintage and is presented in luxurious timber packaging.
For the collector of all things Ghostbusters™, the second of three tribute coins features Slimer the gluttonous ghoul who leaves a ghastly green slime in his wake. As the very first ghost captured by the Ghostbusters team, the “ugly little spud” became an icon of the 1984 hit movie franchise.
We’re also pleased to announce the release of the 2017 Australia Half Sovereign.
Inspired by the Sydney Mint’s original half sovereign, struck from 22 carat gold, this modern tribute reflects the traditional purity of all sovereign coins since 1817.
Issued as Australian legal tender, this stunning half sovereign is beautifully presented in a wooden case, with a mintage of 1,000.
