This month’s new product bulletin presents outstanding collector coins that are certain to impress.

Pride of place on the bulletin front-cover goes to the new Kimberley Sunset Pink Gold Coin, a stunning release featuring an iconic Argyle pink diamond. It’s no exaggeration to say that this coin is a masterpiece!

We know that many of you have been anxiously awaiting the next release from our popular Australia Map Shaped Coin Series. Hopefully the wait has been worth it, for this superb new addition celebrates Australia’s largest bird of prey – the magnificent Wedge-tailed Eagle.

As the nation prepares to commemorate the landing of troops from Australia and New Zealand on the Gallipoli peninsula in 1915, two more very limited releases are available from the five-year ANZAC Spirit Coin Series, both poignantly reflecting sacrifice and remembrance.

Additionally, we’ve created a special 100th anniversary edition of our ANZAC Day $1 Coin Series, appropriately inscribed with the words ‘Lest We Forget’.

For further information about these coins, as well as the Australian Sovereign Gold Proof Coin for 2015, please review this electronic bulletin or visit Recent Releases.

October sees the launch of the latest coin from the Australia Map Shaped Series featuring native Australian animals.

The new coin portrays one of Australia’s most feared reptiles, the Saltwater Crocodile. A formidable and opportunistic predator, it’s capable of killing almost any animal that enters its territory!

Check out this video clip of the actual coin in capsule.

Issued as Australian legal tender, just 6,000 of these Saltwater Crocodile coins from the Australia Map Shaped 1oz Silver Series will be released in presentation packaging.

Australia Map Shaped Series

The Australia Map Shaped Coin Series has proved exceptionally popular since the first coin was issued in 2012. With a maximum mintage of 6,000, each coin is cleverly created from 1oz of 99.9% pure silver in the shape of Australia.

The Kookaburra, Emu, Kangaroo and Platypus releases have already sold out, and there are currently less than 1,000 Koala coins still available for sale. Please consider snapping up the latest release if you’re intending to pursue this series further or simply love all things crocodilian!


Future assured for popular series

Contrary to information presented in this month’s Bulletin, this unique series is certain to continue in 2015 and beyond. Designs under consideration feature an adventurous and exciting selection of Australian animals that we’re sure will delight collectors going forward.

Many thanks to the avid collector who sent us this picture from Alberta in Canada of his own hand-crafted Map-Shaped coin display. Being so distant from Australia, it was a bit of a problem finding a seven-pointed Commonwealth Star and our collector is still looking for a pin featuring the Australian flag. Even so, we think it’s a fantastic result which will present the first four Map-Shaped releases to perfection!

Anyone else created an interesting display of Perth Mint coins? Send us your photos for the blog!
