Why purchase this 2021 1 oz. Gold Australian Coat of Arms bullion coin?
This gold bullion coin produced by the Royal Australian Mint is an homage to the Australian Commonwealth Coat of Arms. The first release of the series dedicated to the elements of the Arms highlights the wildlife aspect of its imagery, the emu and the kangaroo, which have been a part of the Arms' design since 1908. As two creatures that lack the ability to move backward, their presence on the Arms is a symbol for the nation's progress.
Gorgeous Symbolic Imagery
Obverse: A magnificently detailed emu appears on the obverse, in a protective stance over its nest and cluster of unhatched eggs. A beautiful, meandering growth of golden wattle, the Commonwealth's floral emblem and a design element of the Arms, springs from beyond the nest, forming a stunning backdrop to the image, while cradling the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II within its branches. Positioned above the emu is the seven-pointed Commonwealth Star, which represents the six states and the territories of Australia. An unfurled scroll near the emu's nest contains the inscription "1 OUNCE .9999 AU." The inscriptions "ELIZABETH II" and "AUSTRALIA 2021" surround the Queen's portrait, which was crafted in 2015 by Jody Clark, a sculptor for Great Britain's Royal Mint since 2012.
Reverse: A kangaroo is depicted standing beside the Commonwealth Star on the reverse, with the head of its joey peeking out of its pouch. A fantastic, symbolic display of blooming foliage surrounds the creature, with each plant in the design identified as an official floral emblem for the Australian states and territories. A shield is supported by the diverse flora, inscribed with the coin's face value of "100 DOLLARS." The shield style and its ornamentation, along with the banner below, bearing the inscription "AUSTRALIA," are adapted from design elements incorporated into the Arms. With the exception of the Queen's likeness, the coin's imagery is an example of the artistic mastery of Aaron Baggio, a prolific coin designer and sculptor for the Royal Australian Mint since 2008.
