This month is nothing short of gigantic in terms of new coin releases.

In gold, we unveil the long-awaited new design for our annual Australian Sovereign, and capture the excitement of the FIFA World Cup™ on our official Australian commemorative.

There’s also a stunning line-up of new silver collectables. Forest Babies depicts absolutely gorgeous images of playful young animals. The Rainbow Lorikeet is vividly portrayed on the fourth release from Birds of Australia, and talking of feathered friends, the high relief version of our 2013 Australian Kookaburra also looks amazing. Treasures of the World kicks off this month with a locket coin featuring loose garnets, and there’s also two special releases for Australian note and stamp collectors!

You can peruse these and more new releases at your leisure in this month’s electronic bulletin, or visit the recent releases section on our website.

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.

Flick through the electronic bulletin for more details of these and other new issues from Deadly and Dangerous, and Mythical Creatures, or visit the recent releases section on our website.
