The Shipwreck Series from the Royal Australian Mint is a four-coin release of bullion coins with a 1 oz silver and 1 oz gold coin. The series catalogs images of the major shipwrecks found off the coast of Australia. The first in the series is that of the Batavia, one of the first ships to see the shores of Australia. Provident Metals happily offers the 2019 Australian Shipwreck Batavia 1 oz Gold Coin for purchase online.
Your purchase of a 2019 Australian Shipwreck Batavia 1 oz Gold Coin through this listing comes with a distinctive triangular protective plastic capsule. This capsule is specially designed to hold the triangular bullion coins of the Shipwreck Series. Each of the individual gold coins in this listing are in Brilliant Uncirculated condition.
The obverse side of 2019 Australian Shipwreck Batavia 1 oz Gold Coins includes the depiction of Queen Elizabeth II in right-profile relief. The Queen is featured in the top of the triangle in the Jody Clark sixth-generation depiction for Australian coins. Debuting in 2018 and 2019 on Australian coins, it showcases the Queen wearing the George IV State Diadem Crown. Below her, a dramatic scene plays out as the Batavia hits a coral reef off the Australian coast and the survivors who didnt drown scramble ashore fighting amongst themselves.
On the reverse of 2019 Australian Shipwreck Batavia Gold Coins is an image of the Batavia as it appeared when it was finished at the shipyards in Amsterdam. Owned by the Dutch East Indies Company, the ship set sail on its maiden voyage in October 1628 and shipwrecked off the coast of Australian just months later in June 1629.
The Batavia was named for the colonial city of Batavia in the Dutch East Indies. The city is known today as Jakarta in the modern nation of Indonesia. The city itself was a colonial city for 320 years until 1949. The city had been held by the Japanese during World War II. The city endured with the name Batavia much longer than the ship.
These 2019 Australian Shipwreck Batavia 1 oz Gold Coins are unique in design. The triangular shape is one thing, but if you view the coins with the text engravings on the reverse upright, you will see the ship Batavia in its final resting place: upside down at the bottom of the ocean.
