Why order this $2 Australia 2018-P 2 oz Silver Dove Piedfort?
The Perth Mint commemorates the centennial anniversary of the end of World War I with this 2018-P Silver Piedfort Dove. The bloody conflict became known as "the war to end all wars" because most thought people could never fight a war again after its horrors. The coin is the first ever bullion dove issue from the mint. Struck from 2 oz. of .9999 fine silver, this coin has the same diameter, but twice the weight and thickness of another Perth Mint issue, the Silver Wedge-Tailed Eagle. It is part of a mintage of just 10,000 pieces.
Stunning Dove Design
The coin's obverse features a right-side portrait of Queen Elizabeth II wearing a tiara. The image, which was designed by Ian Rank-Broadley, dominated coins from Australia and other countries for more than two decades. "ELIZABETH II" is inscribed along the rim, as are the coin's date, weight, purity, and face value.
The reverse features a dove, a symbol of peace, carrying a poppy, a symbol of remembrance. The poppy's status as such originated in the famous poem "In Flanders Fields," which was composed by John McCrae. In the background, the word "PEACE" is inscribed several times in various fonts, sizes, and directions. A rim frame encircles this image. In it are the date of the armistice, "1918," and its effect, "END OF WORLD WAR I."
Virtually Flawless MS69 One of First 200 Struck Exclusive Australia Label
This coin received a Mint State 69 grade from the experts at Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC). That grade means that the coin is in perfect condition as seen by the naked eye. The grading company further indicated that the coin was among the first 200 of its kind to be struck and provided this information on an exclusive label that bears the Australian flag and an image of one of the country's most famous landmarks, the Sydney Opera House.
