Colored coin designs have never looked more delightful and charming than on the coins from this new Perth Mint series portraying cute and cuddly Australian baby animals. The first Australian Bush Babies coin depicts Australian artist Elise Martinson’s gorgeous interpretation of an infant kangaroo. The next four coins in this series will portray a baby sugar glider, a dingo, a bilby and a koala.
This coin is struck from 1/2oz of 99.9% pure silver in proof quality. The reverse includes representations of Australian native flowers and The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark. The obverse of each coin portrays the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the silver content, the face value and the 2010 year-date.
