A Cuddly Creature on a Historic Coin!

Talk about symbols of China and it won't take long for the iconic panda to come up. What few people know, though, is that another species of panda, sometimes referred to as the "red panda," "red bear-cat," or "red cat-bear," can be found in southwestern China and the eastern Himalayas. The casual observer could be forgiven easily for failing to recognize the relationship between this species and its better-known counterpart, as its reddish-brown fur and elongated body make it appear more similar to other types of animals. One of these unique creatures, Ravi, lives at the Australia Zoo. This silver coin immortalizes this popular attraction.

  • PART OF THE "AUSTRALIA ZOO" SERIES -- This 2018 Silver Ravi the Red Panda is part of a series of coins that celebrates animals that live at the Australia Zoo.
  • ADORABLE RAVI DESIGN – The reverse design depicts a closeup shot of Ravi climbing out on a branch with his head turned toward the holder.
  • 99.9% FINE SILVER – Each Ravi the Red Panda coin was struck at the Royal Australian Mint from one ounce of 99.9% fine silver.
  • AUSTRALIA LEGAL TENDER – This coin is $1 legal tender in Australia, as noted at the top of the reverse.
  • A HISTORICALLY LOW MINTAGE -- At just 3,000 pieces, this is the lowest mintage of an Australian one ounce silver bullion coin in history.

 

With the possible exception of those who have spent lifetimes studying zoology, a trip to just about any zoo will result in the discovery of new species for the visitor. Sure, the likes of crocodiles, horses, otters, and other common creatures are staples that most visitors look forward to seeing on each visit, but it is the more exotic species, like the red panda, that create the memorable "Ooh!" and "Aah!" Moments. This silver coin celebrates one such creature, Ravi the Red Panda, and makes it possible for you to have a look at the adorable animal without the long flight to Australia. With a low mintage of just 3,000 pieces just a few of which are ours, though, your chance to own this coin will not be around for long, so order now at GovMint.com!
