Why purchase this $1 Australia 2020-P 1 oz Silver Brumby?
British settlers took horses to Australia when they colonized the continent. Many of them escaped, were lost, or were abandoned. Today, their decedents are known as "brumbies" after James Brumby, a soldier who is believed to have released many of his own horses into the wild in 1801. These horses survive in a hostile environment, the Australian Alps. Now, Perth Mint pays tribute to the creatures with this stunning 1 oz piece. Struck from .9999 fine silver, this coin is part of a mintage of just 25,000 pieces. It bears the famous "P" mint mark of the Perth Mint and will arrive in GEM Brilliant Uncirculated condition.
Stunning Brumby Design
The obverse features a portrait of Queen Elizabeth II by British Royal Mint designer Jody Clark. The monarch has her shoulders open to the holder while facing right. On her head is her Royal Diamond Diadem, the crown that she traditionally wears to Britain's annual State Opening of Parliament. She also wears earrings and a necklace. Her name, "ELIZABETH II," is among three inscriptions on the rim frame. The other two note the name of the issuing country, "AUSTRALIA," and the face value of the coin, "1 DOLLAR."
On the reverse is a majestic brumby. The powerful horse's muscles are executed in fine detail as it races through water, which splashes up from the ground. Arching over the stunning beast are the words "AUSTRALIAN BRUMBY." Inscriptions along the bottom portion of the frame note the coin's date, "2020," weight, "1 OZ," and purity, "9999 SILVER."
