Limited mintage of only 6,500 coins! The first coin in a series from the Perth Mint.

Each coin contains 1 troy ounce of .999 fine silver and comes in stunning proof condition in a Perth Mint capsule.

Imagine walking through the tall trees and coming across a giant marsupial, towering over you at 6.6 feet tall and weighing more than 500 pounds. These massive ancient kangaroo-predecessors roamed Australia during the Pleistocene era and are now memorialized on the 2013 1 oz Megafauna Proof coin from the Perth Mint.

The procoptodon, as it is called, had a flatter face than its modern relations, with eyes pointing forward rather than on either side of its head. Each foot had one large toe like a horse’s hoof, and its front paws had two long claws that it used to grab branches. It is thought to have eaten grass and leaves.

The reverse features a mother procoptodon carrying a young joey in her pouch, its head just peeking out. A colorized background features the beauty of Australia in photo-realistic color. The name “PROCOPTODON” is emblazoned near the top rim.

The obverse depicts the regal profile of Queen Elizabeth, with “ELIZABETH II,” “AUSTRALIA 2013,” and “1 DOLLAR” around the rim.

Add a truly unique piece to your collection when you order your 1 ounce Megafauna coin from Provident Metals today.
