- Australian Bush Babies II Echidna
- Coin in capsule + with Certificate of Authenticity+ Presentation case
The third release in this cute series depicts a baby echidna. The echidna is native to Australia, and can be recognised by its spiky coat and rambling walk. This endearing mammal has a long snout which functions as both a mouth and a nose, and feeds by using its long, sticky tongue to collect food.
The echidna has very short, strong limbs with large claws, making them powerful diggers, and is also one of only four species of mammal that lay eggs.
The coin is struck by The Perth Mint from 1/2oz of 99.9% pure silver in proof quality.
The coin’s reverse depicts an irresistible coloured image capturing the uniqueness and charm of a beautiful baby echidna. As well as The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark, the design features a friendly Australian insect and delicately frosted representations of Australian bush flowers.
Issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965, the coin’s obverse depicts the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II
Each coin is accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity. Each coin is housed in an attractive presentation display case and superbly illustrated shipper.
