Highly sought after for their charming theme and quality artisanship, Australian Swan bullion coins are back in 2019 with an endearing new design featuring a mother swimming gracefully with her baby cygnet.
In Australia swans are almost entirely black, save for white outer flight feathers of the wing. A startling sight for early European explorers more familiar with white swans, Cygnus atratus is widespread across the continent, breeding predominantly in the southeast and southwest regions, including the Swan River in Perth.
Australian Swan 2019 1oz Gold and Silver Bullion Coins
After mating for life the graceful birds live in isolated pairs or small colonies and raise one brood per season, a family bond reflected in the design on these superb 99.99% pure gold and silver bullion coins. The mother and her baby are depicted gliding in the foreground with another swan in the distance.
Following sell outs in both 2017 and 2018, the 2019 releases are already proving to be extremely popular.
