The iconic didgeridoo is featured on the second 1/4oz gold release. The didgeridoo is a wind instrument sometimes described as a wooden trumpet or pipe.

It was first used by Indigenous Australians in ancient times, although the exact age of the instrument is not documented. Modern didgeridoos are usually cylindrical or conical, and generally, the longer the instrument, the lower the pitch or key.

The Perth Mint will release no more than 1,000 1/4oz gold proof coins.

The gold coin’s reverse depicts an Indigenous Australian playing the didgeridoo in an outback bush setting. The inscription THE LAND DOWN UNDER and The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark are also incorporated in the design.

The obverse of both coins portrays the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the 2013 year-date.

Each coin is housed in a unique Australian map shaped latex case with a stylised shipper, and is accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
