Leadbeaters possum was first discovered in 1867 and again in 1961 after it was thought the species had gone extinct. These beautiful animals have had a difficult time surviving due to various forest fires and land developments in their natural habitat. Today, Leadbeaters possums are endangered, but some scientists believe that if they can stick around for another 150 years, natural tree hollows will begin to develop in their current habitat, enabling their long-term survival.
Each 2022 1 oz Niue Silver Australia At Night Leadbeater’s Possum Coin has received a beautiful Black Proof finish, giving it a darker hue than a regular proof coin. This perfectly complements the nocturnal theme of this coin series. Each coin arrives in a display box with a themed shipper and a Certificate of Authenticity.
The obverse of 2022 1 oz Proof Niue Silver Leadbeater’s Possum Black Coins features an effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. This portrait by Ian Rank-Broadley shows the Queen wearing the Girls of Great Britain and Ireland Tiara. A wedding gift from Queen Mary, Her Majesty has worn this tiara many times throughout her reign. Along the rim are the coins hallmarks.
On the reverse field of 2022 Proof Niue Silver Australia At Night Leadbeater’s Possum Black Coins are three possums. In the foreground we see a larger Leadbeaters possum, and in the background are two smaller ones. Together they are in a tree and behind them, we see the full moon. At the top of the coin are the words Australia at Night, Leadbeaters Possum.
