AUSTRALIAN EMU 2023 1oz Gold Bullion Coin
An iconic Australian bird that appears on our national Coat of Arms, the emu is portrayed in superb artistic style on this limited 1oz pure gold investment coin.
Standing up to 1.9 metres tall, the emu is Australia’s largest bird. Males are known to protect their young, driving enemies away by kicking their long, powerful legs, which are also used to propel them across the continent’s dry plains at remarkable speeds up to 50 kilometres an hour.
The coin portrays an adult emu watching over its three young chicks in an arid outback environment. The inscription ‘AUSTRALIAN EMU’, The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark, the 2023 year-date and the coin’s weight and purity are also included in the design.
The coin bears the official Queen Elizabeth II Memorial Obverse, featuring the Jody Clark effigy supplemented with the dates of Her Majesty’s reign – ‘1952 – 2022’. Also included on the obverse is the coin’s monetary denomination.
For additional peace of mind, the coin incorporates an authentication feature in the form of a micro-laser engraved letter. Detectable under a magnifying glass, it is designed to make it significantly more difficult for the coin to be counterfeited.
These magnificent gold coins are iconic Australian symbols.
Meticulously struck from 99.99% pure gold in bullion quality, the coins are issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965.
