Buy 2008 1oz First Fleet Silver Anniversary Coin, 99.9% Proof Quality, Perth Mint Australia

2008 1oz Silver Coin Anniversary Frist Fleet

The founding of modern Australia dates from 1788 with the arrival of the First Fleet from Britain. Carrying more than 1,300 colonists, 11 ships entered Botany Bay between 18 and 20 January. Finding the area unsuitable for permanent settlement, Captain Arthur Phillip, commander of the First Fleet, moved the colonists north to Port Jackson, anchoring at Sydney Cove on 26 January. This coin, which marks the 220th anniversary of the First Fleet, is struck from 1oz of 99.9% pure silver in proof quality. The coin is issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965. The coin’s reverse portrays a coloured image of Governor Arthur Phillip and an outline of the Australian continent, often referred to as New Holland at that time. The design, which also includes the inscription THE FIRST FLEET 1788, appears within a circular border of stylised waves incorporating The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark. The coin’s obverse depicts the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the 2008 year-date and the monetary denomination. Each coin is housed in a gold-coloured presentation case, which comes in a gold-coloured shipper and illustrated band accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
