2013 Birds of Australia Series Red - Tailed Black-Cockatoo 1/2oz Silver Proof Coin

This brand new coin program is inspired by the birds that inhabit the continent of Australia.  Because of the nation’s island status, many of these species are unique and breathtakingly beautiful.

The coin is struck by The Perth Mint from 1/2oz of 99.9% silver in proof quality.

The coin’s reverse portrays a Red-tailed Black-Cockatoo in colour perched on a struck wooden log. As well as The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark, the design also includes representations of Australian vegetation.

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 classic display case with a delicately coloured, illustrated shipper.

About This Series

 

Beginning with the characterful Red-tailed Black-Cockatoo, and followed by the Budgerigar, Regent Bowerbird, Rainbow Lorikeet and Splendid Fairy-Wren, this series is not one to miss. These colourful birds have been brought to life with stunning artistry and attention to detail, by the inspired hand of designer Natasha Muhl.

The Red-tailed Black-Cockatoo is a raucous, noisy, black parrot found throughout Australia where it lives in a variety of habitats – temperate forests, woodland and dense tropical rainforest.

Large flocks are often observed in the morning or just before dusk. Females have a banded orange/red tail, while the striking red panels on the male’s tail gives this species its name.
