For those who regularly buy silver that originates at the Perth Mint, wildlife-themed coins are a common design motif for the mint’s coins. Most, if not all, Perth Mint annual bullion coins focus on native creatures found only on the continent, such as the Koala, Kangaroo, and Kookaburra. A new coin joins the group with the release of the Australian Silver Emu. Today, 2018 1 oz Australian Silver Emu Coins are available to you from JM Bullion with NGC certifications.

In the all-new Australian Silver Emu release, the Perth Mint continues to aggressively expand the options for silver buyers within its catalog. What started in 1990 with the Australian Silver Kookaburra has grown to feature an Australian Silver Koala (2007), Australian Silver Wedge Tail Eagle (2014), and Australian Silver Kangaroo (2016).
The Perth Mint takes investors on another journey through the continent’s native wildlife with the Silver Emu release. The coins feature the new standard of .9999 pure silver content and have a calming design of the Emu walking through a landscape of local flora.
All 2018 1 oz Australian Silver Emu Coins in this listing are available to you with a near-perfect grade. The NGC issues Mint State 69 grades to coins with full, original mint luster and a maximum of two minor flaws. Those flaws are limited to minuscule contact marks or hairlines found outside the primary focal points.
The included Early Release label indicates the timing of the coin’s arrival for grading. Each one was received by the NGC within the first 30 days of the 2018 release date the Perth Mint set for its Australian Silver Emu coins.
On the reverse of the 2018 1 oz Australian Silver Emu Coin is the first design in this beautiful new collection. The Emu, a large flightless bird that lives only on the Australian continent natively, strides calmly across an Australian landscape with local flora in the foreground and background.
The obverse of the new Australian Silver Emu Coins features the right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Here, Her Majesty is shown in the fourth-generation design from the Royal Mint originally. Created by Ian Rank-Broadley, this design is commonly used throughout commonwealth nations and former territories.
