Discover Australia is back! Famed for its creative artistry, the 2013 silver coin series features spectacular new designs of Australia’s native fauna and natural landscapes.

These beautiful coins complement superbly the latest gold and silver issues from The Land Down Under, which this month chart James Cook’s famous voyage of discovery to Australia’s east coast in 1770.

June also sees the release of this year’s prestigious Australian Koala gold proof issue. In response to popular demand, it includes not just one, but two high relief coins featuring another magnificent depiction of our iconic koala.

Add to these the representation of winter on the latest addition to our Australian Seasons square coin series and the start of an exciting new sporting range for young collectors, and this month delivers another massive choice for collectors and gift buyers.

The annual migration of the Monarch butterfly is one of the greatest natural phenomena in the insect world.

The brilliant orange and black butterfly is especially famous for its annual migration all the way from Canada to Mexico when it’s estimated to travel up to 425 kilometres a day – an amazing feat for such a fragile creature. Every year upwards of 300 million make the lengthy journey.

What’s truly astonishing, though, is how the butterflies know their precise destination, having never made the journey before!

During 2012, the latest Young Collectors series celebrates this and six other remarkable creatures.

An Australian legal tender gift program designed for parents and grandparent to give to their children, the series is a great way to introduce youngsters to the hobby of coin collecting.
