Silver Ounce 2019 Welcome Stranger Nugget, Coin from Australia
CoinSilver Ounce 2019 Welcome Stranger Nugget

The Australian one ounce silver piece (abbreviated as 1 oz and designated with Ag for "silver") is a bullion and commemorative 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 silver bullion coin is the first issue in the Australian Nugget Series from the Perth Mint. With it, the mint marks 150 years since the discovery of the Welcome Stranger natural gold nugget.

The Welcome Stranger is the biggest alluvial gold nugget found, which had a calculated refined weight of 97.14 kilograms (3,123 ozt). It measured 61 by 31 cm and was discovered by prospectors John Deason and Richard Oates on 5 February 1869 at Moliagul, Victoria, Australia.

The reverses of the coins in the series are based on a 1986 four-coin set issued by the Perth Mint, the coins in which were designed by Stuart Devlin.

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 and the face value: ELIZABETH II AUSTRALIA · 1 DOLLAR ·.
