It would be difficult to employ the use of too many superlatives to describe The Jewelled Phoenix, one of the most significant coins ever created by The Perth Mint. Showcasing our vision for luxury, prestige and exclusivity, the stunning gold proof release portrays a mythical phoenix adorned in pavé set natural pink diamonds.
To see this wonder of modern numismatics, be sure to peek inside this month’s electronic bulletin. Aimed at high end collectors in search of rare and beautiful objects, it’s a glowing tribute to the artists and craftspeople whose superb skills lie behind the production of each and every Perth Mint coin.
A prime example appears on this month’s front cover. Marking the start of Warfare, an exciting series of three high relief antiqued silver coins, it portrays a Roman Legion locked in fierce combat. As a special bonus, a downloadable wide-screen image of the entire battle scene can be viewed in 3D with complimentary viewing goggles that come with this remarkable release.
This month we’re delighted to announce the availability of our first coin marking the 50th anniversary of the ground breaking movie, Planet of the Apes. Produced under licence from Twentieth Century Fox Film Corporation, the silver release makes an ideal memento for devotees of the film that launched one of the most successful sci-fi franchises of all time.
Talking about icons of popular culture, can anyone resist the comic antics of Bugs Bunny? Under our agreement with Warner Bros. Entertainment Inc, we’re thrilled to bring you an official release celebrating the wisecracking trickster, the first silver proof coin from our new Looney Tunes series featuring characters from American animation’s golden age.
Thanks to CBS, our internationally sought after Star Trek coin program has been transported into the contemporary broadcast era with the launch of a two-coin set for fans of Discovery. As well as U.S.S. Discovery NCC-1031, it portrays First Officer Michael Burnham, brilliantly played by Sonequa Martin-Green, the first black female lead in the franchise’s 50-plus year history.
Making its impressive debut, our first two kilo high relief silver coin portrays one of the Mint’s most endearing koala designs. Overcoming many challenges to create the dramatic relief featuring intricate details such as gum nuts, flowers and foliage, our minters have done an incredible job in the production of another landmark Australian release.
February’s bulletin also includes our spectacular 2018 Australian Kangaroo Gold Proof Five-Coin Set, and the final 1oz silver coin from The ANZAC Spirit 100th Anniversary Coin Series. Browse the bulletin for more information or purchase online at Recent Releases.
