Product Literature

The Perth Mint is proud to announce the highly anticipated 2012 Discover Australia silver proof
coin series.
With five new animal designs for 2012 the coins consist of:
The Green and Gold Bell Frog; which is an emerald to olive green coloured amphibian which
often displays brown and gold markings. Although these frogs prefer to live close to water or in
wetlands, they are often found in urban areas. Known to be active during the day, the Green
and Gold Bell Frog enjoys basking in the sunshine.
The Red Kangaroo; which is the largest species of Australia’s best known animal, the
kangaroo. Native to Australia, the Red Kangaroo can be found throughout the mainland across
scrubland, grassland and desert habitats. They are mostly nocturnal, resting in the shade
during the day or slowly grazing on grasses and shrubs. These beautiful creatures possess
powerful hind legs for hopping and a pouch to carry their young.
The Kookaburra; which is one of Australia’s most recognisable birds found throughout
mainland Australia. The bird’s white coloured plumage and brown facial stripe is distinctive, as
is its loud laughing call. A territorial tree-dwelling kingfisher, the Kookaburra is believed to mate
for life. Both the male and female partner share the incubation duties of their unhatched eggs,
while other members in the family group later assist with the parenting responsibilities.
The Goanna; which is one of Australia’s largest monitor lizards. These reptiles are usually dark
grey to black in colour and display cream or yellow scales, which form bands and spots, in
contrast. Goannas are found throughout most of Australia in a variety of environments. Using
their powerful legs and tail, long neck and strong claws, the Goanna can move quickly across
the ground and among tree branches, and is the only lizard to possess a forked tongue.
The Whale Shark; which is the world’s largest fish, yet despite its formidable size is considered
harmless. Found in coastal waters and the lagoons of coral atolls and reefs, the upper body of
the Whale Shark is blue-grey to brown in colour, with light spots. Boasting some 3,000 tiny
teeth, the Whale Shark is a filter feeder, sieving food through its gills. This majestic creature
was not discovered until 1828, although the species is actually millions of years old.
Struck by The Perth Mint from 1 oz of 99.9% pure silver in proof quality, each coin is issued as
legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965.
The Perth Mint will release no more than 7,500 of these 1oz silver proof coins.

Red Kangaroo;

background of the central Australian outback and a windmill. The inscriptions DISCOVER
AUSTRALIA and RED KANGAROO, The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark and the 2012 year-date are
also included in the design.
The coin’s reverse depicts a Kookaburra perched on a tree branch against a coloured
background scene of the Murray River at sunrise. The inscriptions DISCOVER AUSTRALIA
and KOOKABURRA, The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark and the 2012 year-date are also included in
the design.
The coin's reverse depicts a Goanna resting on a rock against a coloured background of the
rocky Kimberley landscape and a Boab tree. The inscriptions DISCOVER AUSTRALIA and
GOANNA, The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark and the 2012 year-date are also included in the
Whale Shark;
The coin's reverse depicts a Whale Shark swimming through the colourful Ningaloo Reef. The
inscriptions DISCOVER AUSTRALIA and WHALE SHARK, The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark and
the 2012 year-date are also included in the design.
Each coin's obverse also bears the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II
and the monetary denomination.
Each 1oz coin is available in an individual display case or a five-coin
presentation case featuring a timber lid and stylised shipper.
