This month the Star Trek coin program celebrates the 24th century adventures of Deep Space Nine. Fans will be delighted at the designs of the two silver proof coins featuring Captain Benjamin Sisko and the Deep Space 9 space station.

Stunning new silver releases reflect worldwide interest in the 150th anniversary of Lewis Carroll’s timeless classic, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. The superb issues include a 2oz antiqued release featuring an embedded clock!

Outstanding high relief coins come aplenty with 2015 additions to the gold and silver Wedge-tailed Eagle series and the iconic Australian Kangaroo.

More famous native animals – a kookaburra, kangaroo and koala – are portrayed in colour on this year’s Australian Outback 1/2oz silver coin collection.

An addition to Sunburnt Country, another coloured Australian series, symbolises the Great Barrier Reef with the inscription “I love her jewel sea” from Dorothy Mackellar’s beloved poem, My Country.

July also marks the release of the fifth coins from the popular Disney Princess series. This month it’s the turn of Jasmine, the star of Alladin.

Finally, the 2015 0.5g gold Mini Koala makes an adorable gift or personal keepsake.
