Why purchase this 2020 1.5 oz. Bi-metal Australian Adelaide Pound Proof coin?
The Adelaide Pound was Australia's first gold coin, minted in 1852. This tribute to the Adelaide Pound produced by the Perth Mint, features an exact replication of the Type I pound design, of which less than fifty were minted! The 2020 dated proof coin is struck from 3/4 Troy oz. of .9167 fine gold, surrounded by a ring of 3/4 Troy oz. of .9999 fine silver. Mintage is limited to just 300 pieces.
Handsome Commemorative Design
The gold Adelaide Pound replica is centered on the reverse, depicting a crown and the date "1852," surrounded by the inscription "GOVERNMENT ASSAY OFFICE ADELAIDE." The image is encircled by a silver frame inscribed with "ADELAIDE POUND" and "2020," with the Mint mark "P" above the date.
"VALUE ONE POUND," "22 CARATS," and "WEIGHT 5 DWT: 15 GRS" are inscribed on the obverse gold center in the original Adelaide Pound configuration, surrounded by a silver ring containing Jody Clark's effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, along with the inscriptions "ELIZABETH II," "AUSTRALIA" and "75 DOLLARS."
