There are plenty of silver bullion coins and other silver products that boast designs fit for the holidays. Within this segment, you will even find coins that take on unique shapes or even have distinctive inset capsules containing other jewels. However, there are few coins that take on a star shape and can actually hang in your tree for the holiday season. Right now, you can get the 2016 Proof Australian Christmas 1 oz Silver Coin from Provident Metals.
Your purchase of a 2016 Proof Australian Christmas 1 oz Silver Coin in this listing comes with a protective capsule and presentation packaging. This isnt your ordinary plastic capsule though. This capsule takes on the seven-pointed star shape of the coin itself and has a loop at the top of the capsule. As a result, you can run a ribbon through the loop and put this beautiful precious metal in your tree for the holiday season. Please note, no ribbon is included with your purchase in this listing.
The obverse side of the coin features the right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II designed in 1998 by Ian Rank-Broadley. This design first appeared on Perth Mint silver bullion in 1999 and was used through 2018 on most coin programs, rolling out to all Perth Mint Australian coins by 2019. In this portrait, Queen Elizabeth II wears the Girls of Great Britain and Ireland Tiara, one of her favorite.
On the reverse face of the coin is a colorized field that includes multiple images befitting the holiday season. There is a golden candle in the center of the design with a white wick from which a brilliant flame bursts forth. There is a red ribbon tied neatly around the candle and multiple leaves of holly with red berries framing the design field. The rest of the coin background on this side includes the original silver finish.
The Perth Mint is a pioneer of beautiful, star-shaped coins. It produced its first star-shaped silver bullion coin in 2015 and continued with this release in 2016.
