Resonating the investors all over the world, Perth Mint has issued a special silver bullion coin in the year 2020 that features an impressive visual representation of the ever-changing nature of financial markets.

The Bull & Bear 1oz silver bullion coin refers to the terms ‘bull market’ and ‘bear market’ which are commonly used to describe rising and falling markets respectively. Believed to originate from the way these animals attack their opponents, with a bull thrusting upwards and a bear swiping downwards, the expressions are metaphors for the movement of the market.

The coin’s reverse portrays a representation of a bull and a bear. The animals are in opposing positions and appear to be in the midst of an attack. Also included in the design is The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mint-mark.

The obverse bears the Jody Clark effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the weight and purity, the 2020 year-date and the monetary denomination of 1 Australian Dollar.
