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.
