2020 1 oz Australia Beneath the Southern Skies .9999 Silver Coin BU

More about the coin's design

Beneath the Southern Skies is a stunning investment coin series that pays homage to Stuart Devlin, who designed many of Australia’s circulating coins. One of Devlin’s early drafts featuring the Australian continent alongside the iconic Southern Cross has been retrieved from the Royal Australian Mint’s archives and reimagined for this new series. The gold coin is ethically produced by Australian metal with three levels of security. Both coins are minted to .9999 purity.

In 1964, as Australia prepared to switch from pounds to dollars, the artist Stuart Devlin won a competition to design the country’s first decimal coins.

One of Devlin’s early drafts featured a view of the Australian continent alongside the iconic Southern Cross constellation. More than fifty years later, this design has been retrieved from the Royal Australian Mint’s historic collection and reimagined for the current release.

Unseen in the Northern Hemisphere, the Southern Cross constellation has guided travelers and explorers, inspired poets and musicians. It has been a symbol of loyalty and rebellion and remains one of the most meaningful and recognizable features in the southern skies.

Other features of the coin:

  • Each coin contains 1 troy ounce .9999 pure silver
  • Each coin is manufactured under Brilliant Uncirculated standard
  • An Australian legal tender coin backed by the Australia government
