One of the most significant coin launches of the year takes place this month with the unveiling of the 2017 Australian Lunar Gold and Silver Coin Series. Along with a comprehensive range of bullion coins, the scrupulously-crafted Proof Issue celebrates the Year of the Rooster, 10th animal of the ancient Chinese lunar calendar.

Our new proof-quality Silver Kangaroo coins lay claim to a number of ‘firsts’ which you can read about in a forthcoming blog post. Struck from ‘four nines’ silver, these iconic releases feature one of the best-known depictions of Australia’s most famous marsupial.

The incredible Wedge-tailed Eagle now appears in extraordinary detail on magnificent gold and silver high relief coins struck from 5oz of pure gold and 5oz of pure silver. They’re joined by a new and equally exhilarating 1oz gold and silver ‘bi-metal’ coin featuring John Mercanti’s superb depiction of our largest bird of prey.

It was 50 years ago this month that cultural phenomenon Star Trek was first seen on TV and to mark the occasion we’re delighted to introduce a unique silver commemorative in the shape of the ‘Delta Shield’, instantly recognisable to all fans as the Starfleet crew badge since the launch of The Original Series in 1966.

With the White Lyon addition to the gorgeous The Cubs series, another coin from the Endangered and Extinct Australian animal series, as well as a new treat for fans of Disney’s Mickey Mouse, September’s new coin bulletin is packed with highlight!

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.
