The obverse of all coins features a Cook Islands design for the right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty’s effigy appears on the obverse of all British and commonwealth locations, with this particular design created by Raphael Maklouf.
Your 2013 Colorized Australian Silver Snake Rectangle 4-Coin Set ships in a commemorative display box that is rectangular in shape, displaying all four of your rectangular coins in a line with the designs visible inside the case.
The Perth Mint was founded in 1899 by the Royal Mint as it expanded its footprint in Australia. However, just three years later Australian federation changed the status of mints in the nation as a new, independent country formed. Today, the Perth Mint is a state-owned entity of Western Australia and exists independent of the Royal Australian Mint.
