The swan is a migratory species of waterfowl found throughout the Northern Hemisphere of the world. There are four to five species in this region of the world, but swans are absent entirely from Central America, Asia, and the whole of Africa.
Australia is home to one species of swan depicted on a line of collectible silver bullion from the Perth Mint.
It is my pleasure to present a four-part series of articles featuring the beautiful Silver Swan Coins.
The Silver bullion Swan was first launched in 2017. The designs vary each year, much like the Koala and Kookaburra coin series from the Perth Mint. In this coin article series, I will be featuring the Silver Sawn coins in the order of their year of release.
2017 Australia 1 oz Silver Swan BUThe Silver Swan coin has a limited mintage of 25,000 coins made of .9999 fine Silver. It was sold out within two days worldwide due to high demand.
REVERSEUpclose, the swan is so lifelike that it appears to be ready to take flight off the coin itself. It is a spectacular coin. The design features a beautiful swan swimming on the surface of the water. The water in the design runs underneath the legend of the coin and can be seen up to the rim of the coin. The design includes the inscription "THE 1oz 9999 AUSTRALIAN SILVER SWAN" and The Perth Mint’s "P" mintmark.
OBVERSEThe Ian Rank-Broadley likeness of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the monetary denomination and the 2017 year-date are depicted on the obverse of the coin.
The Silver Swans
Stay tuned for the next exquisitely crafted Silver Swan coin in this series.
