Why order this 2020 1 oz Silver $1 Australia Beneath the Southern Skies?

The Royal Australian Mint reimagines the work of a numismatic icon with this Silver Beneath the Southern Skies. In the 1960s, Stuart Deviln won a contest to design Australia’s new decimal coins as the country made the change from pounds to dollars. One of his designs featured Australia and the Southern Cross, a constellation that is only visible in the Southern Hemisphere. Though the design did not make it onto coinage at the time, collectors now have the chance to own a coin with the design, as it has been re imagined for this new series. The coin was struck from 1 oz of .9999 fine silver and will arrive in GEM Brilliant Uncirculated condition.

Stunning Australia & the Southern Cross Design by Stuart Devlin

The obverse bears a portrait of Queen Elizabeth II by Jody Clark against a globe background. Clark’s effigy of the monarch shows her facing right wearing her Royal Diamond Diadem, as well as earrings and a necklace. Her name, “ELIZABETH II,” joins the name of the issuing country, “AUSTRALIA,” and the date, “2020,” on the rim.

The reverse features a fresh look at Stuart Devlin’s Australia & the Southern Cross design. Australia is set on a globe under the Southern Cross constellation. The coin’s face value, “1 DOLLAR,” is inscribed to the left, while its weight and purity, “1 OZ 9999 SILVER,” are inscribed along the rim on the bottom.
