CoinSilver Two Ounces 2020 Surfboard

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.

The Mint says about this coin:
This eye-catching 2oz silver coloured coin is the first Australian coin shaped like a surfboard.

Australia’s beaches are known for their beauty as well as their unbeatable breaks. With waves for beginners as well as seasoned surfers, surf locations around the country come with incredible energy, epic swells and spectacular views. A celebration of the Australian surfing lifestyle, this innovative collectable is a must-have for fans of the water.

Obverse
Australia / Silver Two Ounces 2020 Surfboard - 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).

Horizontally above, the monarch's legend ELIZABETH II AUSTRALIA; horizontally below, the precious metal content, date of issue and face value: 2oz 9999 Ag 2020 2 DOLLARS. "2 oz 9999 Ag" means "two ounces of 99.99% silver" - Ag is abbreviated from the Latin word for silver, Argentum.

The background is decorated with a double wave pattern.
