Gold Ounce 2018 Bird of Paradise, Coin from Australia
CoinGold Ounce 2018 Bird of Paradise

The Australian one-ounce gold piece (abbreviated as 1 oz and designated with Au for "gold") is a bullion coin format. Uniquely, in Australia there are two mints authorised to strike legal tender: the Royal Australian Mint (which also makes the country's circulating coinage) and the Perth Mint which only makes collector and bullion coins, as well as other bullion products.

Both mints endeavour to create coins with attractive designs, and to introduce new designs and themes often, in order to raise the numismatic value of the coins over the value of previous metal used.

The Mint says about this coin:
Depicting a beautifully detailed bird of paradise performing its iconic mating dance, this coin is a magnificent keepsake for bird lovers of any age.

The aptly named birds of paradise are native to northeastern Australia and Papua New Guinea. Known for their dramatic, brightly coloured plumage displayed as part of a flamboyant courtship ritual, they have some of the most magnificent mating spectacles in the bird kingdom.

Obverse
Australia / Gold Ounce 2018 Bird of Paradise - obverse photo

The obverse of the coin shows the crowned mature head of Queen Elizabeth II facing right (her effigy known as the "Fourth Portrait"). The Queen wears the "Girls of Great Britain and Ireland" diamond tiara, a wedding gift from Queen Mary (Her Majesty's grandmother) in 1947 - which she also has on the Machin and the Gottwald portraits.

In small letters below the head, the artist's initials IRB (for Ian Rank-Broadley).

Around the effigy is the monarch's legend, the date of issue and the value: ELIZABETH II AUSTRALIA 2018 · 100 DOLLARS ·.

The inscription around above reads AUSTRALIAN BIRD OF PARADISE. Around below, the precious metal content: 1oz 9999 GOLD (one troy ounce of 99.99% gold).
