Perth Mint Australian Emu 2023 1 oz .9999 Silver Bullion Coin



Perth Mint 2023 Australian Emu 1oz .9999 Silver BU Coin

The emu is an iconic Australian bird. Second only to the ostrich in size, it stands at up to 1.9 metres in height on long powerful legs which can propel it at speeds nearing 50 kilometres an hour. The emu appears on Australia’s coat of arms along with the kangaroo – reputed to have been chosen because neither willingly takes a backwards step.

Portraying a mother emu and her chicks in an outback landscape, this 2023 addition to the Australian Emu coin series is struck from 1oz of 99.99% pure silver. The reverse includes the inscription AUSTRALIAN EMU, together with the coin’s weight, purity and year-date.

Issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965, the coin bears the Jody Clark effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and its denomination on the obverse. 

This coin has a maximum mintage of 30,000.


Each coin’s reverse includes a security feature in the form of a micro-laser engraved letter within the design. It is only detectable under a magnifying glass. 


The Australian Emu 2023 1oz Silver Bullion Coin is presented in a protective acrylic capsule.
