2013 Australian Opal Series – The Pygmy Possum 1oz Silver Proof Coin
This is the 4th release from the Australian Opal Series. Inlaid chips of pure Australian opal come together in a brilliant mosaic of colour to depict this rare species of Australian fauna perched on a Banksia branch.
It is a proof quality coin made from 99.9% pure silver and comes in magnificent display box which even has a small light in the lid to highlight the opal facets on opening.
The outer band on the coin stuck with images of leaves and flowers from the possums native habitat and also has the moon and the Southern Cross displayed to give more feel to the surrounds of this tiny nocturnal animal.
Truly a delight to look at and a great 4th coin in an already popular series from the innovative artists at silversmiths at Perth Mint.
The coin comes with original packaging, prestige case and Certificate of Authenticity. Certificate number may vary from that displayed.
The coin’s reverse also incorporates The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mint mark. Issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965, the coin’s obverse depicts the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the 2013 year-date.
