CoinSilver Two Ounces 2020 End of WWII

The Australian two ounces silver piece (abbreviated as 2 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 with antique finish is part of a Perth Mint series commemorating the 75th Anniversary of the End of World War Two (WWII).

The Mint says about it:
WWII was an international struggle that ended in 1945 following years of devastating battle and the deaths of an estimated 60 to 80 million soldiers and civilians. Seventy-five years on, the world stands ready to reflect upon the events of the War and acknowledge the enormity of the sacrifice and suffering it caused.

Obverse
Australia / Silver Two Ounces 2020 End of WWII - 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, the date of issue and the face value: ELIZABETH II AUSTRALIA 2oz 9999 Ag 2020 2 DOLLARS.

The inscription around the rim also incorporates the precious metal content. "2 oz 9999 Ag" means "two troy ounces of 99.99% silver" - Ag is abbreviated from the Latin word for silver, Argentum.

The reverse of the coin depicts a dove against a stylised background and silhouettes of soldiers, surrounded by a wreath.

On two lines on the left, the inscription 75 YEARS; on two lines on the right, END OF WWII.

The Perth Mint's traditional P mint mark is below right. The designer's initials LB (for Lucas Bowers) are in tiny letters below right, above the lowest leaves of the wreath.
