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.

The inscriptions DISCOVER AUSTRALIA and GREEN & GOLD BELL FROG, The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark and the 2012 year-date are also included in the design.
