New releases this June have been inspired by epic tales and achievements.

The ancestry of the Australian Stock Horse dates back to the arrival of the First Fleet in 1788. Bred for Australian conditions, more than 120,000 served in the First World War where their strength, stamina and courage earned them the reputation as one of the finest cavalry mounts in the world. Struck in superb proof quality, our 2016 Australian Stock Horse 5oz pure gold coin reflects its deeply rooted place in Australian history and folklore.

Almost 400 years ago, Dutch navigator Dirk Hartog left evidence of his exploration of the west Australian coast in the shape of an inscribed pewter plate – the oldest European object ever found on Australian soil. To commemorate the historic event, our Dirk Hartog Australian Landing high relief silver commemorative portrays the Eendracht, the East Indiaman that Hartog anchored near Shark Bay in October 1616 before charting the coast northwards.

In ancient Norse mythology, Thor was a hammer wielding God of Thunder who fought the terrifying serpent Jormungand. During their fatal final encounter, Thor killed the beast with his powerful war-hammer Mjollnir, but died shortly later from its venom. The second release from the exceptionally popular Norse Gods series of antiqued silver coins features a dramatic representation of their deadly encounter.

The Phantom is the hero of a long-running comic strip created by Lee Falk 80 years ago. Sworn to the destruction of piracy, greed, cruelty and injustice, the character has also been portrayed in other forms of media, including television, film, and video games. Celebrating his enduring popularity, The Phantom’s 80th Anniversary 1oz Silver Collectible is housed in a remarkable replica of Skull Cave, his secret hideout in the jungle of Bengalla.

June also sees the release of the 2016 Australian Kookaburra 1 Kilo Silver Proof Coin featuring a classic design of the world’s largest Kookaburra perched on a barbed-wire fence.
