This giant-sized, yet exclusively minted, silver coin celebrates perhaps the most popular building in Melbourne, Flinders Street Train Station.
Construction of this transport hub – the first to be built in an Australian city – was completed in 1910 and it subsequently became the busiest passenger station in the world by the 1920’s.
Since that era, the Station has further risen to prominence; partly because of its beauty but also as “the place to meet” in Melbourne. Today, over 100,000 pedestrians walk through some part of Flinders St Station daily, yet few stop to consider the wonderful history of this amazing building.
To be officially released in July 2015, this precious metal behemoth features high relief minting quality, combined with a genuine copper inlay coloured to reflect the century-old copper dome atop this magnificent construction.
Part of a tiny maximum mintage of just 999 coins, there will not be enough to satisfy demand… and yet, beyond that exclusivity, the stunning beauty of this coin is truly eye-catching. Intricately detailed, and gorgeously finished, it is simply a must-have for all collectors, Melbournians, and Australians alike.
Presented within a deluxe timber case with a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
