Our latest silver bullion coin features the beautiful Manucodia, a bird of paradise endemic to New Guinea.

The first coin featured the Victoria’s Riflebird species and depicted it calling out with wings outspread on a tree branch. This year that basic style remains, but we have a different species to look at – the Manucodia. Known for their distinctive song – the result of an extended windpipe acting like a wind instrument – the Manucodia live in the lowland forests of New Guinea and nearby islands. Medium-sized with black-glossed purple and green plumages, they are, uniquely amongst Birds of Paradise, monogamous.

Another fine design by Jennifer McKenna, it remains available in both 1oz gold and 1oz silver form. Mintages are set at 5,000 for the former and 50,000 for the latter, with each supplied encapsulated, even in rolls of 20 in the case of the silver.

Each coin is struck by The Perth Mint from 1oz of 99.99% pure silver, and issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965.
