Australian Sealife Lionfish Silver Coin

Australian waters host some of the most famous reef systems in the world. From spectacular tropical corals to towering forests of kelp, these dynamic environments are teeming with aquatic life. Celebrating five fascinating reef dwellers, this stunning collector series begins with a release portraying the Lionfish. The coin is struck by The Perth Mint from 1/2oz of 99.9% pure silver in proof quality.The coin’s reverse portrays a Lionfish in colour. Covered in red to black bands, the Lionfish has very long pectoral and dorsal fins. The dorsal fin comprises an array of extremely venomous spines, which are used for protection against predators. Growing to around 35cm in length, the Lionfish can be found in tropical waters around the west, north and east coasts of Australia. The coin’s reverse incorporates The Perth Mint’s historic ‘P’ mintmark. Issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965, the coin bears the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the 2009 year-date on the obverse. No more than 10,000 Lionfish coins will be released by The Perth Mint. Each coin is accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity. Joining the Lionfish coin (2009), future releases in this series depict a Leafy Sea Dragon (November 2009), Clownfish (January 2010), Seahorse (March 2010) and Moray Eel (May 2010). Each coin is housed in a presentation case which comes in a colourfully illustrated box-shipper. When lined-up in release order, the shipper illustrations form a linked image depicting all five reef creatures.
