Sold out at the Mint! The Perth Mint has issued a new series of value priced coins meant to extol the biodiversity and natural beauty of the Land Down Under. Appropriately enough, these five colorful dollars comprise the Celebrate Australia Program. Each coin commemorates one of five different Australian UNESCO World Heritage Sites. The artistic and skillfully rendered design of each coin encompasses two distinct elements unique to its UNESCO World Heritage Site:

A close up view of a spotted Eastern Quoll, a marsupial carnivore once native to mainland Australia but now only found on the island of Tasmania.    • A full color view of the Site's resplendent natural beauty; and
    • An iconic animal of that UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The five different Sites and the animals represented include:
   • Great Barrier Reef & Green Sea Turtle
   • Greater Blue Mountains & Tree Frog
   • Heard and McDonald Islands & Macaroni Penguins
   • Shark Bay & Dugong Sea Cow
   • Tasmanian Wilderness & Eastern Quoll

The Celebrate Australia coins are available either singly or in a complete set of all five dollars! This remarkable and reasonably priced program allows collectors of any means to taste the natural splendor and sample the remarkable diversity of the Island Continent in all its glory! This set makes the perfect gift for any coin collector, including young numismatists! Celebrate Australia!
