The emu, Australia's iconic flightless bird, is the subject of this new silver coin from the Perth Mint. Struck from .9999 fine silver and made to the exceptional level of quality that the mint is known for, the 2018 1oz Silver Emu is a must for serious collectors and a very sound investment.
Just 30,000 of these beautiful silver coins are available worldwide and each is made to the Perth Mint's exacting standards. The reverse shows an adult emu stalking imperiously across a grassy outback plain. A frosted background ensures that each detail is crisp and clear and the Mint's 'P' mintmark is to the left of the bird. The obverse of the 2018 1oz Silver Australian Emu bears a portrait of HM Queen Elizabeth II.
The emu is Australia's largest bird and it is also the second-largest by height in the world after the ostrich. It's recognised as an Australian cultural icon all over the world and its habitat encompasses the entire country.
