Perth Mint Australia just issued an Australian Swan 2018 1oz Silver Proof Coin in 99.99% of pure silver. The coin’s reverse portrays the beautiful sawn, an emblem of Western Australia, swimming gracefully on the surface of the water with her cygnet.

The design includes the inscription “THE 1oz 9999 AUSTRALIAN SILVER SWAN” along with the Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark. The coin's obverse depicts the effigy of HM Queen Elizabeth II and the monetary denomination “1 Dollar”.

Issued as the legal Australian tender, the Perth Mint will release no more than 2,500 of the Australian Swan 2018 1oz Silver Proof Coin. The coin has been designed by Natasha Muhl.
