The Perth Mint is known for much more than its annual silver bullion coin releases. Its beautiful bullion coin collections offer images of the various native animals from the Australian continent in different reliefs each year, but that is not where the Perth Mint’s design prowess ends. The mint also offers a wide range of collectible bullion and proof coins with stunning designs and low mintage figures. Among its latest offerings is the Perth Mint Marvel Series of silver bullion coins. This program debuted in 2017 and recently enjoyed a reissue from the mint with protective shipping cards bearing full-color artwork. Learn more about this limited release now!
The original coin designs released in the Marvel Series collection launched in 2017 from the Perth Mint with the Spiderman design. The coins were issued with individual capsules, rolls of 20, and boxes of 100 or 300 coins. The maximum mintage from the series included 50,000 coins in total for each of the designs in the series. From that original mintage of 50,000 coins, the Perth Mint has repackaged 1,000 of the coins from each design in the collection.
Each of the Perth Mint Marvel Series Coins in this release comes with its own full-color artwork card. The coins are housed within the card itself and on the obverse of the card is a colorized depiction of the superhero depicted on the reverse of the coin. The artwork on the obverse of the cards matches the design found on the reverse of the coin as the exact depiction of the superhero from its original Marvel Comics appearance.
Six of the seven coins in the Marvel Series collection from the Perth Mint are available in this re-release from the Perth Mint. The only missing coin from the original collection is the 2017 Spiderman coin. All of the coins offered after the Spiderman debut issue are featured in this series, including the following:
The Perth Mint repackaged 1,000 of each of the coin designs for individual purchase inside of the colorful cards. However, you also have the option of purchasing all six of the coins in this limited issue as part of a six-coin Marvel Series card set. The set, like the individual cards, has a limited mintage of just 1,000 sets. All of the coins in this collection are available with 1 Troy oz of .9999 pure silver and are available in Brilliant Uncirculated condition.
The Marvel Series is just the latest of the impressive silver collections from the Perth Mint. Founded in 1899, the Perth Mint was the third and final mint facility constructed in Australia by the Royal Mint of England. It followed the construction of the Sydney Mint and the Melbourne Mint. Today, it stands as the oldest operating mint facility in the country and predates even the Royal Australian Mint. The Currency Act of 1965 extended legal tender status to all of the coins from the Perth Mint. The Marvel Series joins collections such as the Australian Kookaburra, Australian Koala, Australian Kangaroo, and the Lunar Series coins from the Perth Mint as impressive options for investors and collectors.
