Australian Swan bullion coins return with highly appealing new design

Topics [ silver bullion coins Australian Swan gold bullion coins ]

Highly prized Australian Swan gold and silver bullion coins are back in 2018 with another superb design – this time portraying a mother and her baby cygnet.


Swans are widespread throughout Australia, although the white feathered species are seldom seen. Cygnus atratus, which breeds mainly in the continent’s southeast and southwest regions, has black plumage except for the white tips of its wings.

These birds are culturally significant in Western Australia. In 1697, Dutch explorer Willem de Vlamingh noted numerous black swans living in the estuary of what he named the 'Swaanerivier'.

In 1829, the British established Perth as the chief settlement in what was then known as the Swan River Colony. Today, the bird’s iconic status is reflected in both our state flag and coat of arms.

Not surprisingly, the swan was also chosen as the emblem of The Perth Mint.

Australian Swan 2018 1oz Gold and Silver Bullion Coins

We’re pleased to announce the second annual release of Australian Swan bullion coins for investors.

Following last year’s extraordinary success, which resulted in the rapid sell out of both 2017 coins, the Mint is anticipating a similar level of buyer interest.

Struck from 1oz of 99.99% pure gold and 1oz of 99.99% pure silver, the 2018 coins feature mintages more in keeping with numismatic issues - just 5,000 gold coins and 25,000 silver will be released worldwide.

As well as valuable precious metal investments, the charm of the mother and baby swan design will ensure these coins are also a pleasure to own.
