Extremely limited mintage!

This first of its kind, this 2 oz silver antiqued coloured coin from Perth Mint features an original coloured painting of a black swan by Kevin Bynder, a First Nations Australian of the Whadjuk-Yuet-Ballardong people.

Kevin is a passionate artist and teacher whose diverse portfolio of vibrant and striking works includes many Indigenous guernsey and shirt designs for high-profile sporting franchises, as well as murals in both public and private spaces in and around Perth. Kevin’s works are inspired by Western Australia’s natural environment and reflect the history and knowledge of his people who have lived on Nyoongar country for tens of thousands of years.

This coin’s reverse features a stunning example of Kevin’s technique: a maali descending onto open water with its enormous wings curved skywards. The background is formed by stylised patterns of coloured dots inspired by the palettes of ochre pigments used by Indigenous artists through time – reds and browns for the landscape, blues, greens and other hues for the water and its currents. Included on the reverse is Perth Mint’s world-famous ‘P’ mintmark.

The antiquing process is much more noticeable on the obverse of the coin, adding the look and feel of an archaeological artifact that’s only just been recovered. The antiquing process adds a unique touch to each coin, and highlights the relief in Jody Clark’s design of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. (Why aren’t all silver coins finished like this?)

With no more than 2,000 of the black swan maali 2022 2 oz antiqued colored silver coin ever to be minted, this may be your only chance to add a truly unique and moving piece to your collection. Get yours today!

About the black swan or maali

Widespread throughout much of Australia, the black swan (Cygnus artratus) is of spiritual significance in the ancestral stories of many First Nations Australians. In the south west, where the Nyoongar (also Noongar, Nyungar) people are traditional custodians of the land, the majestic waterbird is often referred to as maali.

According to local lore, maali was once a vain and boastful white feathered swan. In punishment for its conceit, waalti, the eagle, ripped out maali’s cherished feathers. Fortunately, ravens took pity on the distressed bird, disguising it with black feathers from their own plumage. Like the black swans in their wetland habitats today, maali retained some white wing feathers which only become visible in flight.

How do you prepare packages for shipment?
All your purchased products are packaged under video surveillance to ensure quality control and packages are carefully and discreetly wrapped in generic corrugated boxes.

Is my order insured while in transit?
Yes, BullionMax fully insures all of its shipments. Should anything happen while your package is in transit to you, it will be covered by our insurance policy.
However, we will not accept responsibility if you have left instructions with any carriers or delivery services to leave parcels unattended for you without the need for a signature, or if you have given the carrier instructions to leave your package with anyone other than the addressee. This includes but is not limited to a building manager, neighbor, a business mailroom, drop-off location such as Mail Boxes, etc., The UPS Store, the Military Postal Service, etc.
Additionally, we will not assume responsibility for packages that are signed for by apartment/complex building management, a business mailroom, the Military Postal Service, or any person(s) that are not the addressee listed on the order. When we ship to you, if metals are lost or damaged in transit, it is our responsibility to pursue any claim with the insurance company.

We do not ship to US territories. Due to special requirements set by the postal systems, we are unable to ship outside of U.S. states.

Should the package not arrive, an investigation of the shipment is required before any order is reshipped or refunded. We may ask you to file a police report if it appears loss is due to theft or tampering. Your assistance speeds up the investigation and the sooner we complete it, the sooner we can resolve the missing order.
