COINSPLUS NOW SPECILAIZES IN COINS
There is huge international interest in Australian Indigenous art, the oldest ongoing tradition of art in the world, which The Perth Mint is proud to portray on these innovative rectangle-shaped coins.
99.9% Pure Silver
The coin is struck from 1oz of 99.9% pure silver.
Unusual Rectangle Shape
The rectangular coin is the perfect shape for the Indigenous-style art portrayed on its reverse.
Reverse Design Inspiration
Created by Darryl Bellotti, an Indigenous artist of both Yamatji and Nyoongar descent, the design is inspired by his boyhood memories of a hunting trip in north-western Australia. The turtle is surrounded by patterns of dots, symbolising the hunters’ journey, and circles, representing the places where they stopped.
Australian Legal Tender
Issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965, the coin bears the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the monetary denomination on its obverse.
Illustrated Presentation Pack
The Turtle Dreaming coin is housed in a beautifully illustrated presentation pack which includes Darryl Bellotti’s signature and his evocative description of hunting in the Australian bush.
Certificate of Authenticity
The pack incorporates a Certificate of Authenticity.
The coin is struck on a mint-to-order basis only. Orders will be accepted until the annoucement of the 2010 coin, after which production will cease and the final mintage will be declared.
