Perhaps the most enjoyable holiday on the calendar each year in the Christian world is Christmas. The celebration of Christ’s birth occurs at the end of the calendar year, and is a time to be with family, friends, and exchange tokens of love and affection with those who matter most. The Perth Mint celebrates the holiday with a beautiful proof coin! The 2016 1 oz Proof Australian Silver Christmas Coin is available today from JM Bullion.

This is not the first time that the Perth Mint has released a silver product that has this unique star shape. A similar star-shaped coin was struck and released around the Christmas period in 2015, pioneering beautiful, colorized coins with this shape.
Each 2016 1 oz Proof Australian Silver Christmas Coin is more than just a coin, it is an ornament for your tree come the holiday season. There is a star-shaped plastic capsule with a loop at the top so you can loop a ribbon through the hole in the capsule to use the proof coin as an ornament for your tree.
On the reverse side of each Australian Silver Christmas Coin is the colorized design of slowly burning candle wrapped in a red bow tie, with a wreath of holly surrounding the candle. The soft red and orange tones of the flame seem to warm the design itself, while Christmas emanates brilliantly from this coin.
The obverse of the 2016 1 oz Proof Australian Silver Christmas Coin features the right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty’s effigy on this coin is from Ian Rank-Broadley, and was created in 1998 as the fourth-generation image of the Queen since she ascended to the throne in 1952.
Australia’s Perth Mint is the oldest operating facility in the country. Founded in 1899 as the third and final Royal Mint system, the Perth Mint once filled the role of producing Australian coinage. Today, the Royal Australian Mint is the sovereign mint of the nation and the Perth Mint is owned and operated by the state of Western Australia.
