Why purchase this 1 oz Gold 2021 $100 Australia Triangular Shipwreck Series Zeewijk?

The historic and ill fated Zeewijk draws to a close the Australian Shipwrecks Series. With a crew of 208 and a cargo of over 315,000 guilders, the ship left the Netherlands in 1726. The voyage started badly with 28 of its men not even reaching the Cape of Good Hope. It wrecked off the coast of Western Australia in 1727. Eleven of the men who survived sought help by sailing to Batavia in the longboat, but they were never seen again. The remaining men built the Sloepie, the first ever ship built in Australia by Europeans, from the wreckage of the Zeewijk, and eighty-two of them finally reached Batavia four weeks after departing Australia.

  • This coin is $100 legal tender in Australia.

Poignant Zeewijk Design

Obverse: Several scenes from the history of the Zeewijk can be seen on the obverse. At the top of this face is a right-side portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. It is joined by the inscriptions "ELIZABETH II," "AUSTRALIA," and "2021." The coin's face value, "ONE HUNDRED DOLLARS," is noted at the bottom of this face.

Reverse: The Zeewijk sails the high seas on the reverse. When the coin is flipped, the boat appears capsized. Viewed from this direction, the holder can also see the inscriptions "ZEEWIJK," "1 OZ .9999 AU," and "1727."
