Why buy this 2 oz Silver 2018-P $2 Australia Dove Piedfort?

World War I was so violent and deadly that it later became known as "the war to end all wars." It finally came to an end in 1918 when France, Britain, and Germany signed an armistice that brought an end to the fighting. This Dove Piedfort, the first ever dove bullion coin issued by the Perth Mint, commemorates the centenary anniversary of that armistice. Struck from 2 oz. of .9999 fine silver at the Perth Mint, this coin is part of a mintage of just 10,000 pieces. A piedfort, it has the same weight and diameter as Australia's Wedge-Tailed Eagle, but it is twice as heavy and twice as thick.

Exquisite Dove Design

The coin's obverse features Ian Rank-Broadley's right-side portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, which dominated Australian coinage for two decades. The effigy depicts the monarch wearing a tiara. It is encircled by several inscriptions, including her name, "ELIZABETH II," the date, "2019," and the weight, face value, and purity of the coin.

On the reverse, a dove in flight carries a poppy. The flower grew on the battlefields of World War I and has long been a symbol of remembrance. In the background are inscriptions of the word "PEACE" in various sizes, fonts, and directions. The rim frame includes the year of the end of the war, "1918," and the inscription "END OF WORLD WAR I."

Impeccable MS70 One of First 200 Struck

Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) certified that this coin is flawless as seen under 5x magnification by awarding it their highest grade, Mint State 70. The grading company also noted that the coin was among the first 200 of its kind to be struck.
