Why purchase this triangular-shaped 2020 Zuytdorp Shipwreck silver bullion coin?
The third release of the Royal Australian Mint's Australian Shipwreck series is an homage to the Zuytdorp, which wrecked on the Western Australian coast in 1712, while carrying freshly minted Netherlands silver coinage in its holds. This triangular-shaped 2020 Zuytdorp commemorative coin contains 1 Troy oz. of .999 fine silver, its mintage limited to 20,000.
Innovative Shipwreck Design
The reverse portrayal of the Zuytdorp features the famed ship both at sail and doomed. When the inscriptions "1oz .999 Ag" "ZUYTDORP" and "1712" appear upside-down, the majestic ship is illustrated at full sail, while the ship is depicted sinking below the ocean's surface when the coin is rotated and the inscriptions are upright.
The obverse depicts the ship's crew struggling to reach a lifeboat, as the Zuytdorp sinks in the background, with an array of Netherlands coinage scattered on the shore amongst skeletal remains. Jody Clark's rendition of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II is centered at the peak of the triangular shape above, surrounded by the inscription "ELIZABETH II AUSTRALIA 2020," with "ONE DOLLAR" positioned within the tumultuous sea below.

This 2020 Zuytdorp 1 oz. silver bullion coin from the Australian Shipwreck Series is presented in ungraded, Brilliant Uncirculated (BU) condition.
