Silver Ounce 2020 Tasmanian Devil, Coin from Australia
CoinSilver Ounce 2020 Tasmanian Devil

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 is the second issue in the Inside Australia's Most Dangerous coin series by the Royal Australian Mint, and features a Tasmanian Devil.

The Tasmanian Devil got its name because of its black fur colour, the red coloured ears when excited, its aggressive nature and its loud guttural screams. The Tasmanian Devil can measure up to a shoulder height of 30 cm and is characterised by its extraordinarily strong jaw.

Obverse
Australia / Silver Ounce 2020 Tasmanian Devil - 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The Queen also wears the Coronation Necklace; originally made for Queen Victoria in 1858, it was also worn at the coronations (as Queen's Consort) of Queen Alexandra in 1902, Queen Mary in 1911 and Queen Elizabeth (the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) and extends almost to the rim of the coin; consequently, the legend does not run continuously around the rim.

The artist's initials JC (for Jody Clark) are in tiny letters below left.

Around the effigy is the monarch's legend and the date: ELIZABETH II · AUSTRALIA 2020.

Obverse Inscription ELIZABETH II · AUSTRALIA 2020
Reverse

The reverse of the coin features the detailed skeleton of a Tasmanian Devil, with its mouth wide open. Between its front legs, the image of the Australian continent.

Below left, the inscription TASMANIAN DEVIL, below which the Latin name of the species: Sarcophilus harrisii.

The designer's logo, a stylised A over B (for Aaron Baggio) is to the right, below the skeleton's ribs.

The face value and denomination, 5 DOLLARS, are above.
