One ounce of 99.99% fine silver is the base of this stunning coin created from one of Stuart Devlins early design drafts intended for our new circulating decimal coins in 1966. The unused images have been retrieved from the Royal Australian Mint archives and used on this new 2020 dated large size dollar coin struck to entice silver collectors and investors. The design appears spherical and depicts the Australian continent alongside the Southern Cross constellation with bands of latitude and longitude. The design carries over to the obverse with the new Jody Clark portrait (with necklace) of the Queen appearing suspended over the globe.
The design is also used on the 1oz fine gold $100 version. Retail price varies as the intrinsic value of the gold and silver fluctuates especially during the unsettled world economy we’re seeing in 2020 (see how I avoided the use of the latest catchphrase unprecedented times). Pricing of the silver coin is around $50 and the gold coin $3,500.
