Silver Kilo 2020 Bull and Bear, Coin from Australia
CoinSilver Kilo 2020 Bull and Bear

The Australian one kilo silver piece (abbreviated as 1 kg and designated with Ag for "silver") 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.

This Bull and Bear silver bullion coin pays homage to ever-changing nature of the market with a stunning depiction of a bear and bull locked in combat.

The Bull and Bear imagery stands as an allusion to the terms Bull Market and Bear Market. These terms are commonly used to describe the nature of the market for a particular investment. A Bull Market is so classified as a market that is rising, hence the subsequent term “bullish.” This is because when a bull attacks it thrusts upwards. In contrast, the Bear Market indicates a market that is falling. Bears, unlike bulls, attack by swiping downward. Therefore the expressions serve as metaphors for the movement of the market.

Obverse

The obverse of the coin depicts the crowned old head of Queen Elizabeth II facing right, wearing the Royal Diamond Diadem crown and the Victoria Coronation necklace worn for her Coronation. This is her effigy known as the "Fifth Portrait" worldwide and "Sixth Portrait" in Australia, in "uncouped" version - showing the Queen's shoulders and not terminating at the neck as the normal version.

On the left, in small letters on the Queen's shoulder, the artist's initials J.C (for Jody Clark).

Running continuously around the rim is the monarch's legend, the date of issue and the face value: ELIZABETH II AUSTRALIA 1 KILO 9999 Ag 2020 30 DOLLARS.

The inscription around the rim also incorporates the precious metal content. "1 KILO 9999 Ag" means "one kilogram of 99.99% silver" - Ag is abbreviated from the Latin word for silver, Argentum.

The reverse of the coin shows a bull and a bear locked in combat, horns and claws ready to attack. The bear hunches downward with an open mouth and swinging claws. Meanwhile, the bull charges forth, lowering its head to strike upward with its horns.

The mint mark P of the Perth Mint is above left. The designer's initials IJ (for Ing Ing Jong) are below right, on the bull's hoof.

There is no inscription. The face value and the precious metal content are on the obverse.
