The Australian Silver Emu coin was introduced by the Perth Mint in 2018. The series became the fifth major silver bullion coin from the mint to earn annual-release status. The coin followed the 1990 introduction of the Silver Kookaburra, the 2007 release of the Silver Koala, the 2014 debut of the Wedge Tail Eagle, and the 2016 issue of the Silver Kangaroo.
With its introduction in 2018, the Australian Silver Emu was made available to investors and collectors in 1 oz silver. The silver bullion coin, like the Wedge Tail Eagle, has much lower mintage caps than the Silver Kookaburra, Silver Koala, and Silver Kangaroo have the 1 oz bullion coins in those releases.
Queen Elizabeth II is depicted on the obverse side of 2020 1 oz Proof Australian Silver Emu Coins. This is the sixth-generation effigy of the Queen to feature on Australian coins and was adopted in 2018/2019 on the vast majority of Perth Mint collections. In this design, the Queen is shown in right-profile relief wearing the George IV State Diadem Crown.
Two emus are shown on the reverse field of the 2020 Proof Australian Silver Emu Coins. This year’s design captures two emus near a water hole in the Outback. While one of the birds is seated and resting near the water, the other is standing in the background. The design of the emus for this year’s release comes from Natasha Muhl.
These 2020 1 oz Proof Australian Silver Emu Coins have traditional proof visuals that include frosted designs overlaying mirrored fields. Each coin is individually housed inside of a black display with a clear lid. The coins ship to you with a Certificate of Authenticity from the mint and have a limited mintage figure.
