Another different shape coin by Perth Mint, Shanghai expo 2010: Australia shaped Silver bullion coin.The Perth Mint has struck Australia’s official commemorative coins for the Shanghai World Expo 2010, taking place between 1 May and 31 October. Authorised by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, each coin in the program celebrates the Australian pavilion, where engaging exhibits and unique attractions are showcasing Australian innovation, creativity and achievement. This coin is struck from 1oz of 99.9% pure silver in bullion quality.
Made in the shape of the Australian continent, the coin’s reverse portrays a coloured depiction of Peng Peng, the Australian pavilion's kookaburra mascot, and the Chinese characters for ‘Australia’. The design includes the Australian pavilion’s colourful logo - a representation of the Australian continent in three wavy lines symbolising the blue sea and sky, red centre and golden beaches. The coin’s reverse also incorporates The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark.
Issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965, the coin’s obverse depicts the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the 2010 year-date.
