This coin portrays the beautiful bottlenose dolphins found throughout Australian waters on the reverse side. These animals are especially common in Australia’s Great Barrier Reef and often symbolize love and compassion. The coin design shows two dolphins leaping above a wave to form a heart shape. In addition, this side bears the P mint mark of Australia’s Perth Mint.
The coin’s obverse shows Jody Clark’s profile of Queen Elizabeth II, a 2015 design that shows the Queen in her later years, complete with crown and Diamond Jubilee earrings. Each coin has a face value of $30 AUD, although the true value is much higher! The coin’s metal content and mintage year are displayed on the obverse as well.
These coins are struck in exceptionally high-quality metal, composed of 99.99% pure gold with a weight of 0.333 troy ounces. The diameter is 25.6 mm, and the thickness is 1.46 mm, offering a highly compact coin for storage along with a high divisibility when it comes to gifting, diversifying, or even bartering in gold. The 1/3 oz weight is rather unusual among gold coins, an additional factor for both collectors and investors to consider.
These coins are fully backed by the Australian government and valid as legal tender in Australia. Due to the high gold content and the stunning dolphin design the 1/3 oz gold bottlenose dolphin coin is a popular choice among investors and collectors alike.
