In 2018 when Australia’s world-renowned Perth Mint added the Emu to its annual stable of silver proof issues that was already home to the Kookaburra and Koala series it was met with almost instant success. Collectors were so enthused by the release that the entire mintage quickly sold out! 2019 followed suit and now the third-year 2020 Silver Emu Proof coins have arrived. And with a mintage of just 2,500, collectors who want one may soon find themselves struggling to get one!
This design for this year’s 2020 Australia One-Ounce Silver Australian Emu Proof features a pair of emus resting near a body of water in the Australian outback. Emus are the second tallest birds in the world and the only ones with calf muscles, allowing them to outdistance predators with strides as long as 9 feet when running at a top speed of more than 30 miles per hour. The two birds on this 99.99% pure silver coin are taking a break from running, however, so you can admire all the incredible detail in their bushy, primitive feathers.
Your 2020 One-Ounce Silver Australian Emu has been graded by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) in near-perfect Proof-69 Ultra Cameo (PF69UC) condition, a distinction that means your almost-flawless coin will showcase an impressive full strike and indistinguishable imperfections — well above and beyond the quality of the vast majority of coins in the series. In addition, NGC has certified that your proof is a First Releases (FR) coin, a designation that means it was received by NGC or an NGC-approved depository within the first 30 days of the its release. It will also come sonically sealed in an acrylic holder with an exclusive Sydney Opera House label.
Don’t be among those collectors who miss out on this immensely popular silver proof issue. Each comes will be accompanied by an illustrated themed shipper from the Mint along with a numbered Certificate of Authenticity. Order your 2020 One-Ounce Silver Australian Emu Proof from GovMint.com today!
