2013 Birds of Australia Series – Budgerigar 1/2oz Silver Proof Coin

A beautiful, small green and yellow parrot, the Budgerigar lives wild in the wide open spaces of inland Australia. A nomadic bird, it flies in groups in search of water and the seeds of native herbs and grasses. Budgerigars are inclined to breed in years of abundant rainfall. Born naked and helpless, young Budgerigars typically fledge after about five weeks. In good years, huge flocks of birds can be seen twisting and turning in unison in the sky.

The second coin in this brand new coin series is inspired by the birds that inhabit the unique continent of Australia.

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

The coin’s reverse portrays a Budgerigar in colour and delicate representations of Australian vegetation. The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark is also included in the design.

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, the 2013 year-date and monetary denomination.

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.
