The Perth Mint has a reputation for producing coins that feature some of the amazing animals that call Australia home. The 2019 Proof Australian Silver Emu 1 oz Silver Coin is the second design in the Silver Emu Collection and was released in 2018, bringing to life a pair of beautiful and proud emus on the coins. The 2018 design featured just one emu, striding across the Outback. Each year the Perth Mint releases a new emu-themed silver coin, with a proof for collectors to appreciate. This coin contains 1 Troy oz of .9999 pure silver. The proof is in BU condition and is a great addition to any collection.
The emu is a large flightless bird, second only in size and height to its cousin, the ostrich. Emus can be found calling all of Australia home. The entire a varied diet that includes plants and even insects. The size of the emu means that the bird needs to eat large quantities, and often.
With a 2018 debut, the Australian Silver Emu collection of coins featured a single emu on the design. The 2019 Proof Australian Silver Emu 1 oz Silver Coin features a pair of emus. These coins are produced following the high production standards that the Perth Mint is well-known for. The Perth Mint produces several silver coin series, with new distinctive designs being released each year. The proof versions of the silver coins are produced in lower mintage figures, to boost their collectability.
The obverse design of the 2019 Proof Australian Silver Emu 1 oz Silver Coin features a profile effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. This portrait is inspired by artist Jody Clarks fifth-generation image that was designed for the Royal Mint of England. What sets this portrait apart from many others is that this one features the neckline and shoulders of Her Majesty. This is a design feature not printed on coins minted in Australia since 1966.
The reverse design of the 2019 Proof Australian Silver Emu 1 oz Silver Coin features two standing emus. The emus are depicted standing next to a dried-up creek bed, in the Outback. Emus are unique birds for a number of characteristics, including the fact that it is not the female of the species that raises the hatchlings. The females lay the eggs, but the males of the species incubate the eggs until they hatch about eight weeks later. Emus are generally loners, but the young do often stay with their little family unit until they are old enough to pair up with a mate themselves.
The 2019 Proof Australian Silver Emu 1 oz Silver Coin is in BU condition. They are delivered in a clamshell presentation case and are shipped in a themed shipper that features the full-color artwork of the emu design. A Certificate of Authenticity is included with each coin.
