The Royal Australian Mint rolled out a new triangular-shaped bullion coin series in 2019. The collection is set to feature four designs and catalog some of the most famous shipwrecks to occur off the coast of Australia. In the first design, the story of the Batavia comes front and center. Provident Metals now offers 2019 Australian Shipwreck Batavia 1 oz Silver Coins are available to purchase online.
With your purchase of 2019 Australian Shipwreck Batavia 1 oz Silver Coin, you receive your coins individually packaged inside of protective plastic capsules. These arent just any capsules though. Each one was specially designed for the Royal Australian Mint to use with the triangular bullion coins in the Shipwreck Series. Each coin is available in Brilliant Uncirculated condition.
The obverse side of the 2019 Australian Shipwreck Batavia 1 oz Silver Coin includes an effigy of Queen Elizabeth II at the top of the coins design field. This is the right-profile portrait of Her Majesty created by Jody Clark and debuting widely on Australian coins in 2019. The Queen wears the George IV State Diadem Crown on her head. Below her effigy, the sad aftermath of the Batavias sinking plays out as survivors struggle against each other to live.
On the reverse of 2019 Australian Shipwreck Batavia Silver Coins is a nautical design border with Batavia sailing in the middle of the design. The inscriptions of the coins weight, purity, and metal content are upside down on this coin when you view the ship upright. Flip the coin to read the inscriptions and you will find the Batavia as it was when it met its fate, upside down on the bottom of the sea.
The Batavia was built in Amsterdam in 1628 for the Dutch East Indies Company. On its maiden voyage, the ship left Amsterdam for the Dutch East Indies colonial capital city of the same name, Batavia, in Indonesia. As it rounded the Cape of Good Hope in southern Africa and stopped for supplies, a mutiny took place and the ship was rerouted with its cargo, crew, and passengers to Australia. It struck a reef off the coast of Western Australia and sunk. The mutineers battled amidst themselves during the aftermath with 110 men, women, and children dying.
