Why add this 2013 Australian Southern Sky Constellation Pavo 1 oz. Domed Silver Proof to your collection?
The Southern Sky series produced by the Royal Australia Mint received the Australian Engineering Excellence Award in 2013 for its innovative deeply curved and brilliantly color printed Silver Proof design. This second coin of the series features Pavo, a constellation that shines most brightly in the August Southern sky. Pavo, Latin for colorful bird, is often referred to as the peacock, and is one of the twelve constellations developed by Flemish astronomer Petrus Plancius in 1598. This incredible Domed Silver Proof, struck from 1 Troy oz. of .999 fine silver, with a declared mintage of just 10,000 coins, measures 39.62mm in diameter.
Unique domed contellation Pavo design
The Southern Sky Constellation of Pavo is featured on the concave reverse, with a background of blue and green reminiscent of peacock feathers, surrounded by a compass border with navigational coordinates and inscriptions of "SOUTHERN SKY" and "PAVO." The royal image of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II adorns the convex obverse, created by artist Ian Rank-Broadley, framed by "ELIZABETH II," "AUSTRALIA 2013," and "5 DOLLARS."
