Silver Ounce 2020 End of World War II, Coin from Australia
CoinSilver Ounce 2020 End of World War II

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 coin is part of a Royal Australian Mint series commemorating the 75th Anniversary of the End of World War Two (WWII).

One million Australians served in the war; almost 40,000 lost their lives. With the capitulation of the Japanese Empire to the Allies on September 2, 1945, the Pacific War came to an end. The end of the war marked a new beginning full of hope for peace.

Obverse
Australia / Silver Ounce 2020 End of World War II - 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The Queen also wears the Coronation Necklace; originally made for Queen Victoria in 1858, it was also worn at the coronations (as Queen's Consort) of Queen Alexandra in 1902, Queen Mary in 1911 and Queen Elizabeth (the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 2020 · 5 DOLLARS ·.

Reverse

The reverse of the coin shows a woman stretching her hands to the sky and letting doves and origami cranes fly free. This picture expresses the triumph of peace over war. At the same time it refers to the "Children's Peace Monument" in Hiroshima. The background shows parallel and meridian lines symbolising the world.

Below left and right, the anniversary dates 1945 and 2020. Around above right, the precious metal content 1oz .999 Ag (one troy ounce of 99.9% silver; Ag is abbreviated from Argentum, the Latin word for silver).

The artist's initials, TD (for Tony Dean) are below right.

Around left, the inscription END OF THE SECOND WORLD WAR; around right, 75TH ANNIVERSARY.
