The final release in this popular series features an outstanding portrayal of the Manta Ray.
The coin is struck by The Perth Mint from 1/2oz of 99.9% silver in proof quality.
The coin’s reverse depicts a Manta Ray in colour and includes The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark. Incorporated into the design are the inscriptions AUSTRALIAN SEA LIFE II – THE REEF – MANTA RAY.
The Perth Mint will release no more than 10,000 of these coins.
Issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965, the coin’s obverse depicts the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the 2012 year date.
The coin is accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
The coin is housed in a display case with a vividly coloured coral reef shipper. Each shipper joins with other shippers in the series to create a superbly illustrated underwater scene.
