Silver Ounce 2021 Australian Swan, Coin from Australia
CoinSilver Ounce 2021 Australian Swan

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 Swan series has been issued by the Perth Mint since 2017, in silver and gold formats.

Swans of the black feathered variety (Cygnus atratus) are graceful inhabitants of the southeast and southwest regions of Australia where they live and breed in estuaries, inlets and other wetland environments. Residents of the Swan River, which takes its European name from their presence, black swans figure in ancient Aboriginal lore and were quickly adopted by European settlers as the bird emblem of Western Australia.

The reverse design changes every year, always featuring a swan. The overall weight of the coin is slightly more than an ounce, so that the pure silver content is exactly 1.000 ASW (troy ounce Absolute Silver Weight).

Launched in 2017, the Australian Swan was an instant hit with collectors who rushed to acquire the first release. Extremely popular ever since with many sell outs, the annual series continues in 2021 with an attractive new design of the majestic bird, which in Australia is characterised by its distinctive black plumage.

Obverse
Australia / Silver Ounce 2021 Australian Swan - 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The Queen also wears the Coronation Necklace; originally made for Queen Victoria in 1858, it was also worn at the coronations (as Queen's Consort) of Queen Alexandra in 1902, Queen Mary in 1911 and Queen Elizabeth (the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 2021 AUSTRALIA · 1 DOLLAR ·.

The fifth annual design in the Australian Swan series portrays an elegant black swan holding its long neck in a characteristically curled S-shape.

The inscription around the rim reads THE 1oz 9999 AUSTRALIAN SILVER SWAN.

To the left of the swan, the designer's initials NM, for Natasha Muhl.

To the right of the swan is a special P5 mint mark, - the additional "5" celebrating five years of the Australian Swan series.
