2013 Opal Series Pygmy Possum 1oz Silver Proof Coin

This wonderfully crafted pygmy possum coin is the fourth release in the Australian Opal series, showcasing nocturnal Australian animals created in pure Australian opal.

The pygmy possum is a mouse-sized marsupial with a long, prehensile tail that can curl around and grip branches.

Code: 468
 
 
 

Often found in a leaf-lined nest in tree hollows, the pygmy possum feeds on nectar, pollen, seeds, fruit and small insects.

Like many Australian mammals, this unique creature is nocturnal and because they are so small, in order to conserve energy and keep warm, they can remain inactive for weeks at a time.

Struck by The Perth Mint from 1oz of 99.9% pure silver in proof quality, the coin is issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965.

The Perth Mint will release no more than 8,000 of these 2013 Pygmy Possum 1oz Silver Proof Coins.

The coin’s reverse incorporates an inner panel design of a pygmy possum on a banksia branch, detailed in pure Australian opal. The outer panel of the coin depicts banksia leaves and blossoms, a first quarter moon and the Southern Cross – a renowned star group which is only visible in the Southern hemisphere.

The coin's obverse depicts the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the monetary denomination.

Presented in a prestigious display case with a light, which turns on as you open the case, to represent the moon shining down on the nocturnal creature. This 1oz silver coin is accompanied by a stunning illustrated shipper and a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
