CoinGold Ounce 2019 Bottlenose Dolphin

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 2019 Bottlenose Dolphin one-ounce gold bullion coin is the first dolphin-themed coin by the Royal Australian Mint.

The common bottlenose dolphin or Atlantic bottlenose dolphin is the most well-known species of the family Delphinidae. The common bottlenose dolphin is the most familiar dolphin species due to the wide exposure it receives in captivity in marine parks and dolphinaria, and in movies and television programs.

The coins are in Brilliant Uncirculated grade and were made available exclusively through APMEX, boxed and with a Certificate of Authenticity.
