The Perth Mint has released new 2021-dated gold and silver coins which is part of their annual “Black Swan” bullion series. Each year since the series was introduced in 2017 a new design is depicted on the reverse which includes these beautiful creatures in different settings and styles.
Designed by Natasha-Muhl of the Perth Mint, her depiction portrays a swan gracefully floating on the surface of the water. The design includes the inscription THE 1 OZ 9999 AUSTRALIAN GOLD or SILVER SWAN and the Perth Mint’s exclusive “P5” mint mark that signifies this coin is a part of the fifth annual swan release.
The obverse side includes the Commonwealth effigy of HM Queen Elizabeth II created by British engraver Jody Clark and introduced onto Australian coinage in 2019. The coins’ denomination of 100 DOLLARS (gold) or 1 DOLLAR (silver) is placed just under the Queen’s likeness.
