Why buy this 2019 $5 Australia 1 oz Silver Select Gold and Nickel-Plated Echoes of Australia - Night Parrot Proof?
The world thought that it had lost a treasure in the night parrot, but the bird was recently rediscovered in the spinifex grasslands. Now, the Royal Australian Mint celebrates the species with this new issue. The coin was struck from 1 oz of .999 fine silver and is plated in nickel. It also has selective gold plating that highlights the central design feature.
Exquisite Night Parrot Design
Queen Elizabeth II's portrait by Ian Rank-Broadley dominates the reverse. The monarch is shown in right-side profile wearing earrings and a tiara. Her name, "ELIZABETH II," is inscribed along the rim, as are the coin's country and date, "AUSTRALIA 2019," and its face value, "5 DOLLARS."
A gilt night parrot features at the center of the reverse. The small creature is shown from the left in the middle of spinifex grasslands. The bird's name, "NIGHT PARROT," is inscribed at the bottom of this face.
Flawless PF70 UC FR with Exclusive Opera House Label
The experts at Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) certified that this coin is in perfect condition as seen under 5x magnification by awarding it their highest grade, Proof 70. They also certified it Ultra Cameo thanks to its deeply mirrored fields and heavily frosted devices and First Releases, which means that it was submitted to NGC within 30 days of its initial mint release. This information comes on a label that features the issuing country's most famous landmark, the Sydney Opera House.
