Also included in the design are the inscriptions ‘MACQUARIE LIGHTHOUSE BICENTENARY’, ‘200’ and The Perth Mint’s traditional ‘P’ mintmark.

The coin’s obverse depicts the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the 2018 year-date and the monetary denomination. Meticulously struck by The Perth Mint from 1oz of 99.99% pure silver with a limited mintage of 3,000 coins.
