Once again our designers have captured the essence of Australia for a range of stunning new coins available in April;

The Australian Map Shaped series is back with a great portrayal of a kangaroo in a coastal scene representing Picnic Rocks, Tasmania.
the second release from The Land Down Under series of iconic coins depicts a didgeridoo player in a dramatically coloured bush location;
it’s the turn of an infant platypus on the ever-so-cute Australian Bush Babies series;
and two classic additions see the Australia Koala available as a coloured 1oz coin and a breathtaking 1 kilo proof coin.

April’s new releases also include an astounding rarity for collectors of Royal commemoratives. Included in our tributes marking the 175th anniversary of Queen Victoria’s coronation is a spectacular 2oz pure gold proof coin with a maximum mintage of just 150.
