Silver Ounce 2020 Opal - Great Southern Land, Coin from Australia
CoinSilver Ounce 2020 Opal - Great Southern Land

The Australian one ounce silver piece (abbreviated as 1 oz and designated with Ag for "silver") is a bullion coin format. Uniquely, in Australia there are two mints independently 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.

The Australian Opal series uses a technique pioneered by the Perth Mint in which the reverse design is done with opal inserts instead of being coloured.

The Great Southern Land 2020 1oz Silver Proof Opal Coin is part of a Perth Mint series of coins inlaid with Australian opal.

The Mint says about it:
The use of authentic Australian opal to depict iconic motifs on coins is an exclusive Perth Mint concept which has been used to remarkable effect on this stunning celebration of the Great Southern Land.

For centuries, Europeans speculated about Terra Australis Incognita - or the great unknown south land. Maritime explorers eventually confirmed its existence, revealing the island continent to be the home of an extraordinary range of wildlife and natural treasures.

Obverse
Australia / Silver Ounce 2020 Opal - Great Southern Land - obverse photo

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

The effigy is smaller than usual, allowing for more space in the centre of the obverse which is patterned with rays radiating from the centre.

Reverse

The reverse of the coin features a central opal insert displaying its beautiful array of colour in the shape of the Australian continent.

Mined in three Australian states, opal is a colourful gemstone which in its most precious form is renowned for a spectacular "play of colours". The precious insert is encircled by representations of iconic Australian animals including the kangaroo, emu, koala, echidna, wombat and bilby.

Also included around below right on the reverse is the coin’s 2020 year-date, its weight and fineness 1oz 9999 SILVER, and on the left - the Perth Mint’s P mint mark.
