Turtle Dreaming Rectangular Silver Coin

Buy Turtle Dreaming Rectangular Silver Coin, 1 oz, 99.9% Pure Silver, Perth Mint Australia

Turtle Dreaming Rectangular Silver Coin

There is huge international interest in Australian Indigenous art, the oldest ongoing tradition of art in the world, which The Perth Mint is proud to portray on these innovative rectangle-shaped coins. The coin is struck from 1oz of 99.9% pure silver. The rectangular coin is the perfect shape for the Indigenous-style art portrayed on its reverse. Created by Darryl Bellotti, an Indigenous artist of both Yamatji and Nyoongar descent, the design is inspired by his boyhood memories of a hunting trip in north-western Australia. The turtle is surrounded by patterns of dots, symbolising the hunters’ journey, and circles, representing the places where they stopped. 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 monetary denomination on its obverse. The Turtle Dreaming rectangular silver coin is housed in a beautifully illustrated presentation pack which includes Darryl Bellotti’s signature and his evocative description of hunting in the Australian bush. The pack incorporates a Certificate of Authenticity.
