Silver Ounce 2020 Christmas, Coin from Australia
CoinSilver Ounce 2020 Christmas

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.

Some of these coins can be classified as "Smartminting" (or "smart minting") due to the technologies used in their production; these include irregular shapes, coloured surfaces, precious stone inserts etc. The coins are targeted at collectors who appreciated them as art rather than at bullion investors.

This star-shaped silver one-ounce coin by the Perth Mint is intended as a Christmas gift.

The Mint says about it:
Highly anticipated, The Perth Mint’s annual Christmas coins are crafted in the shape of a decorative star. Beautiful gifts, each release doubles as a hanging ornament that adds a touch of elegance to any tree.

This year’s release features a design harking back to Christmas in the bush at a time when settlers used colourful native flora to decorate their homes and verandas. The coin’s reverse coin portrays a delightful garland of iconic flowers including golden coloured wattle, red Waratah and Bottlebrush. Within the arrangement are two Yellow Robins, inquisitive and self-assured birds well-known for their piping pre-dawn calls.

Obverse
Australia / Silver Ounce 2020 Christmas - obverse photo

The obverse of the coin depicts the crowned old bust of Queen Elizabeth II facing right, wearing the Royal Diamond Diadem crown worn for her Coronation (effigy known as the "Fifth Portrait" worldwide but "Sixth Portrait" in Australia, where the Queen's portrait by Vladimir Gottwald was fifth).

The Queen also wears the Coronation Necklace; originally made for Queen Victoria in 1858, it was also worn at the coronations (as Queen's Consort) of Queen Alexandra in 1902, Queen Mary in 1911 and Queen Elizabeth (the Queen mother) in 1937.

Unlike on British coinage, the effigy is "uncouped" (includes the Queen's shoulders). In small letters on the left, the artist's initials JC (for Jody Clark).

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

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

The reverse of the coins is coloured and depicts Christmas decoration using Australian native flowers - golden coloured wattle, red Waratah and Bottlebrush. Within the arrangement are two Yellow Robins. Two birds - Yellow Robins - have perched on the flowers.

On two lines at centre, the inscription MERRY CHRISTMAS.

The Perth Mint's P mint mark is below right. The designer's initials AH (for Aleysha Howarth) are on a leaf to the right of the lower bird.
