Isolated locations, slippery and uneven surfaces, and the unpredictable nature of the ocean, make rock fishing the most dangerous sport in Australia.
Yet despite many reports which detail fishermen being swept to their untimely demise, the exhilaration of the pastime makes it an extremely popular activity across Australia and New Zealand.
The fourth and final design in the 2014 The Land Down Under series.
The Perth Mint will release no more than 1,000 of The Land Down Under – Rock Fishing 1/4oz Gold Proof Coin.
The reverse of the gold coin depicts a fisherman and his son fishing from a rock platform. The inscriptions THE LAND DOWN UNDER and ROCK FISHING also appear in the design with The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark and the weight and fineness of the coin.
The obverse depicts the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the monetary denomination and the 2014 year-date.
Each coin is housed in a unique, contemporary, Australian map-shaped latex case which displays both sides of the coin. The case is packaged within a beautifully illustrated shipper, and is accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
