Australia 2012-P Discover Australian Wildlife - Complete 5-Coin Collection $1 Pure Silver Dollar Proof Set with Color
(You save $199.80)
Get the complete, 5-coin silver dollar proof set of Native Australian wildlife in the new Discover Australia program!
The Discover Australia series has been the cornerstone of the Perth Mint's numismatic collector coin offerings since its introduction with the First Discover Australia Program in 2006. These exciting coins depict native animals, with the focus of the latest program being the unique wildlife of the Island Continent in all its glory! Talisman Coins and the Perth Mint (Australia's precious metals experts) are proud to bring you this latest Discover Australia program, starting with these pure silver dollars. Each animal is presented in full, frosted cameo proof finish, against a backdrop of splendid color portraying its native habitat.
The Discover Australia Wildlife Proof Silver Dollars are available singly and as a Complete 5-Coin Collection!

This luxurious five coin set is a complete collection, containing each and every one of the five silver proofs issued this year in the Discover Australian Wildlife series. The five animals featured this year are:
Green & Golden Bell Frog
Goanna Monitor Lizard
Each coin is also available individually at the links above, where more detailed information about and images for each animal can also be found.
We believe that this five coin set is an excellent investment for a number of reasons:
It is the easiest way to obtain the complete collection of five coins.
Native Australian Wildlife is unique, endangered and famous throughout the world.
The mintage limit is only 7,500 per coin.
A far greater number of each coin will be sold singly rather than in this five coin set.
Five coin sets will only be available until the first of the five coins sells out at the mint. After that, no more can be assembled.
Perth Mint multi-coin sets are extremely popular with collectors.

The Discover Australia Series
Each Discover Australia coin provides a gateway to explore the Land Down Under, as both its one-of-a-kind fauna and its unspoiled, majestic natural environment! Each proof-finish coin is encapsulated and handsomely displayed inside an elegant, luxury presentation case with a native Australian jarrah wood lid, protected by a full-color outer box. An individually-numbered certificate of authenticity is included. Jarrah is a species of eucalyptus tree found in the southwest of Western Australia. Because of its similar appearance to mahogany, jarrah is sometimes referred to as Swan River mahogany, after the river that runs through Perth.
Don't forget the first two Discover Australia programs, as well as the related Celebrate Australia program:

Please note, the mint images of this beautiful proof coin do not do it justice. The fields are deeply mirrored, the relief devices are white-frosted cameo, and the deep, rich colors of Australia's outback are incredible!

The Perth Mint of Australia employs its own proprietary colorization technology, in which the color is actually sealed on the coin. The vibrant hues and precise execution of the technology create a stunning, full-color portrait on each coin.

A frosted cameo portrait of each of five different, native Australian animals, set against a full color backdrop of their native habitats. The legends DISCOVER AUSTRALIA and each animal's name define the theme, while the legend 1 OZ 999 SILVER guarantees the weight and purity. The Perth Mint's "P" mint mark is also present.
Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II of England, in crowned profile facing right. This portrait, featuring Her Majesty wearing a tiara and pearl earrings, was executed by the sculptor Ian Rank-Broadley. The legend ELIZABETH II and the denomination also appear.
