Why purchase this triangular-shaped 2020 Vergulde Draeck Shipwreck antiqued silver coin?

The Royal Australian Mint's Shipwreck series is an homage to historic wrecks that occurred off the Australian coastline. The second release of the series honors the Vergulde Draeck (Old Dutch name for Gilt Dragon), which sank in 1656 with a cargo that included Spanish reales and Japanese silver coins. The series is ingeniously designed to showcase each ship at peak sailing glory; but with merely a rotation of the coin, the vessel appears capsized in the same image. This antiqued coin's design emulates the previously issued Vergulde Draeck bullion release with a significantly lower mintage.

  • The 2020 coin is struck from 1 Troy oz. of .999 fine silver.
  • The coin features a hand-applied antiqued finish.
  • Mintage is limited to only 1,000 coins, just 5% of the 20,000 piece bullion mintage.

Exceptionally Detailed Shipwreck Imagery

Obverse: The obverse depicts the Vergulde Draeck's crew struggling for survival as the vessel succumbs to the turbulent ocean, with the ship's cargo scattered upon the shore. Centered above is the portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II created by The Royal Mint's sculptor Jody Clark in 2015. Inscriptions include "ELIZABETH II," "AUSTRALIA 2020" and "ONE DOLLAR."

Reverse: The reverse features the Vergulde Draeck surrounded by an array of design elements from the ship itself. "VERGULDE DRAECK" is inscribed upon a fluttering banner, with "1oz .999 Ag" above, and "1656" below.
