Kookaburra History
The Silver Kookaburra has been a very popular product from the Perth Mint for many decades. It was first struck in 1990 as a .999 fine silver coin. Last year, the coin was elevated to .9999 fine silver.

The Kookaburra
The laughing kookaburra is the largest member of the kingfisher species. It grows to between 28–42 cm (11–17 in) in length). The name is an aboriginal loanword. In the original language “guuguubarra” sounds like the bird’s distinctive call. This loud call of the laughing kookaburra is widely used as a stock sound effect for movies and television shows that depict the Australian outback. It’s unusual call has actually been used for scenes outside of those in the bush, to lend an exotic flavor. It can be heard in The Wizard of Oz (1939), The Treasure of the Sierra Madre, Swiss Family Robinson (1960), and The Lost World: Jurassic Park and more.

The Kookaburra thrive in a wide range of habitats from humid forest to arid savanna, as well as suburban Australian areas that offer tall trees or flowing water.

Under the command of William Bligh, the Bounty was commissioned by the British Navy in 1787 and sent to the South Pacific on a scientific mission to acquire breadfruit plants. England hoped to transplant and farm the food source in the British West Indies. After the commandeering the ship, the mutineers fled the reach of the Royal Navy, sailing the the Bounty throughout the region including a course that encompassed Fiji and the Cook Islands. Eventually, the mutineers chose to set up a camp on Pitcairn Island, which was incorrectly charted by Britain. The cartography mistake gave the mutineers hope that they would remain undetected. To further cover their tracks, the mutineers burned and scuttled the HMS Bounty was burned and scuttled in the bay at Pitcairn Island in 1790.

Between its establishment in 1899 and 1931, the Mint struck 106 million gold sovereigns and nearly 735,000 half-sovereigns which were used as currency in Australia. The Mint halted the manufacture of gold sovereigns in 1931 when Britain did away with the gold standard. However the mint and its refinery were kept busy with the creation of fine gold bullion bars and minting Australia’s base metal coinage up until the end of 1983. In 1957, the Perth Mint produced a 13 troy ounce proof of almost six nines of purity: 999.999 parts of gold per thousand, “arguably the purest of all gold.” This feat led The Royal Mint to order some of this gold to use as a benchmark for its own standards.

More on the Aztec Warrior

The Aztec empire’s rapid expansion central Mexico was driven by the might of its warriors.

There is some disagreement about the status of warriors in Aztec society. Could a successful Aztec warrior become a part of the nobility or was that class only accessible through heredity?

Historians say that there were “societies” within the Aztec army – groups of knights that held a high rank and a high place in society. The largest (and today most well known) of these were the Jaguars (ocelomeh) and Eagles (quauhtin). Men in these societies would wear uniforms representative of these animals.

Sometimes they would wear wood helmets with the insignia of their order. Higher classes wore bright featherwork, quilted cotton armour, mantles of blue (tlahuiztli suits). The higher the rank, the more elaborate the costume. Aztec warriors could also carry flowers, a privilege normally reserved for the nobles.

The coin features the design found on the Aztec Sun Stone which is kept in Mexico City’s National Anthropology Museum. 260 days. In Nahuatl, the language of the Aztecs, it is called the tonalpohualli or, the day-count.Most information on this website refers to the tonalpohualli, which is the sacred calendar.

There is actually another Aztec calendar

There is not just one Aztec calendar, there are two more or less independent systems. One calendar, called the xiuhpohualli, has 365 days.It describes the days and rituals related to the seasons, and therefor might be called the agricultural year or the solar year.

The Aztec sun stone (Spanish: Piedra del Sol) is a late post-classic Mexica sculpture housed in the National Anthropology Museum in Mexico City, and is perhaps the most famous work of Aztec sculpture.[1] The stone is 358 centimetres (141 in) in diameter and 98 centimetres (39 in) thick, and it weighs about 24 short tons (21.4 long tons; 21.8 t). Shortly after the Spanish conquest, the monolithic sculpture was buried in the Zócalo, the main square of Mexico City. It was rediscovered on 17 December 1790 during repairs on the Mexico City Cathedral.[2] Following its rediscovery, the sun stone was mounted on an exterior wall of the Cathedral, where it remained until 1885.[3] Early scholars initially thought that the stone was carved in the 1470s, though modern research suggests that it was carved some time between 1502 and 1521.[4]

The tonalpohualli, or day-count, has been called a sacred calendar because its main purpose is that of a divinatory tool.It divides the days and rituals between the gods. For the Aztec mind this is extremely important.Without it the world would soon come to an end.According to Aztec cosmology, the universe is in a very delicate equilibrium.Opposing divine forces are competing for power.This equilibrium is in constant danger of being disrupted by shifting powers of the gods, of the elemental forces that influence our lives.This struggle cannot be won by any god.
The notion that everything ultimately consists of two opposing forces is essential to the Aztec worldview.The world is always on the brink of going under in a spiritual war, a war of gods competing for supreme power.To prevent this from happening, the gods have been given their own space, their own time, their own social groups, etcetera, to rule over.The tonalpohualli tells us how time is divided among the gods.

The coin features the design found on the Aztec Sun Stone which is currently on display at Mexico City’s National Anthropology Museum. In Nahuatl, the language of the Aztecs, it is called the tonalpohualli or, the day-count. The tonalpohualli is considered to be the sacred calendar that is divided into 260 days. It is primarily thought to be a divinatory tool that separates the days and rituals between the gods. This was a critical function in the Aztec culture. Aztecs believed the world would come to an end without this guide that controlled the divine forces that competed for power According to Aztec cosmology, the universe’s delicate is in constant danger of being disrupted by shifting powers of the gods and of the elemental forces that influence our lives.

Surprisingly, there is more than just one Aztec calendar. Another calendar, called the xiuhpohualli, has 365 days. It describes the days and rituals related to the seasons. It is thought to be a guide to the agricultural or the solar year.

The Aztec sun stone is perhaps the most famous work of Aztec sculpture. It measures 141 in diameter, is 39 inches thick, and weighs about 21.8 tons. Early researchers thought that the stone was carved in the 1470s, however, modern scholars date the carving to between 1502 and 1521.

Saint Gaudens Double Eagle

In 1905, President Roosevelt personally invited Saint-Gaudens to redesign American coinage, specifically U.S. gold pieces. What emerged has been called the most beautiful coin ever minted in the U.S. and perhaps the world — the 1907 $20 gold piece, also known as the Double Eagle.

On the obverse, Saint-Gaudens shows Liberty, personified by a statuesque woman striding powerfully forward. Liberty’s robe harkens back to our roots as a republic based on the ideals of ancient Greece and Rome. Liberty is leading the way with a torch in her front hand and an olive branch in the back hand. This design underscores that liberty is central to the American spirit, is beautiful and attractive to all, and wherever Liberty goes, inspired by enlightenment, peace follows. The United States Capitol dome is also depicted in the background, meaning that through representative democracy, liberty has been fully achieved in America, strengthening her position to go forth throughout the world.

A young eagle flying during a sunrise is depicted on the reverse. This is America, young and strong, in its ascendancy with a bright future before it. The motto, “E PLURIBUS UNUM” is on the edge of the coin, allowing a cleaner design on the obverse and reverse. These stylistic elements represented the visual embodiment of America and made it the definitive American coin.

American Eagle

American Eagle Palladium Bullion Coins were authorized by Congress in 2010 and first issued in 2017, they are the first and only official investment-grade palladium coins from the U.S. Mint whose weight, content and .9995 purity are guaranteed by the United States Government.

All American Eagles are legal tender coins, with their face value imprinted in U.S. dollars. Although their face value is largely symbolic, it provides proof of their authenticity as official U.S. coinage. The one-ounce palladium coin carries a face value of $25.

American Eagle Palladium Bullion Coins come in a one ounce size only.

The obverse design features a high-relief likeness of “Winged Liberty” from the “Mercury Dime” obverse by famed American coin designer and medallic artist Adolph A. Weinman.

The reverse design features a high-relief version of Weinman’s 1907 American Institute of Architects (AIA) Gold Medal reverse, which includes an eagle and a branch. In developing the coin, the United States Mint was able to use the original reverse plaster of the AIA gold medal. This is the first time that Weinman’s AIA design appears on a U.S. coin.

When Queen Elizabeth II was crowned in 1953, the entrance to Westminster Abbey was lined with ten statues who “guarded” the way. These fantastical creatures – The Queen’s Beasts – were a line up of heraldic, and in some cases mythic animals, who symbolized the centuries of heritage that the young queen had inherited.

The Queen’s Beasts Collection of coins from The Royal Mint are inspired by these ancestral beasts of that have watched over the Queen throughout her reign, from coronation to Sapphire Jubilee.

The Falcon symbol descended from the reign of Plantagenet King Edward III who chose the symbol to embody his love of hawking. The white Falcon statue at The Queen’s coronation in the 20th century held a shield with a badge depicting a second white falcon within an open golden ‘fetterlock’ or padlock. The fetterlock and the falcon were popular emblems in the Houses of both York and Lancaster, as they had descended from Edward III’s younger sons John of Gaunt and Edmund of Langley. The open fetterlock can only be used by a noble with a claim to the throne.

The Falcon is said to be the favorite badge of Queen Elizabeth I.

The White Lion holds a shield bearing the white rose of York combined
with the sun’s golden rays – a symbol important to Edward IV, who saw the sun as a sign of good luck in battle.

The secure, detailed chainmail background texture is a signature of this bullion collection.

The White Lion came to The Queen through her Yorkist heritage. First used by Roger Mortimer, Earl of March (1328–60), a founder Knight of the Order of the Garter, it passed to the House of York and was used by Richard II.

Both sides of the Gold White Lion of Mortimer coin were created by renowned Royal Mint designer Jody Clark

The inspiration for this series is the statues that adorned Westminster Abbey’s entrance for Elizabeth II’s coronation in 1953. Each statute is a real or fantasy creature that represents the heraldic beasts of the various English rulers in the Queen’s lineage. The plaster originals are now in Canada, while stone copies are displayed in Kew Gardens, outside the palm house.

More on the Aztec Warrior

The Aztec empire’s rapid expansion central Mexico was driven by the might of its warriors.

There is some disagreement about the status of warriors in Aztec society. Could a successful Aztec warrior become a part of the nobility or was that class only accessible through heredity?

Historians say that there were “societies” within the Aztec army – groups of knights that held a high rank and a high place in society. The largest (and today most well known) of these were the Jaguars (ocelomeh) and Eagles (quauhtin). Men in these societies would wear uniforms representative of these animals.

Sometimes they would wear wood helmets with the insignia of their order. Higher classes wore bright featherwork, quilted cotton armour, mantles of blue (tlahuiztli suits). The higher the rank, the more elaborate the costume. Aztec warriors could also carry flowers, a privilege normally reserved for the nobles.

He is shown wearing the traditional headdress and jewelry of Aztec royalty. The reverse also bears the inscriptions of his name, the metal content, weight, and purity.

More on the Sun Stone

This 260-day timetable is acknowledged as the sacred Aztec calendar because it was primarily used as a divinatory tool. It was used to assign the rituals among their gods. The design, called tonalpohualli in Nahuatl, the language of the Aztecs, is a central part of their culture, as they believed that without it the world would come to an end.

The actual Aztec sun stone, which is one of the most icon pieces of this ancient society, is 141 inches in diameter and 39 inches thick, and it weighs approximately 21.8 tons.

Following the Spanish conquest, this monolith was buried in Mexico City’s main square. Then in 1790, it was rediscovered when the Mexico City Cathedral was under repair and was mounted on a wall of the Cathedral, where it remained until 1885. It is now preserved in Mexico City’s National Anthropology Museum.

There is actually another Aztec calendar called the xiuhpohualli which has 365 days. It describes the days and rituals related to the seasons, and therefor might be called the agricultural year or the solar year.

Asahi Silver Buffalo Reverse Proof

DEALERS – Order NOW!: Call the trading room to order 800.375.4653 or login to FizTrade.com.

The Obverse features Asahi’s variation on the iconic image from the American Buffalo nickel. This was originally designed by sculptor James Earle Fraser in 1911. In addition to the bison image, the obverse has the text “One Troy Ounce” and “.999 Fine Silver.”

As with the original nickel, the Reverse of this round displays Asahi’s take on James Earle Fraser’s native American profile. The text on this side is limited to “Liberty” and the Asahi logo.

The original design has inspired a variety of stories, many by the artist himself. For example, what bison did he use? Fraser wrote that the model “was not a plains buffalo, but none other than Black Diamond, the “contrariest” animal in the Bronx Zoo. I stood for hours … He refused point blank to permit me to get side views of him, and stubbornly showed his front face most of the time.” Since this quote, historians have uncovered the fact that Black Diamond was never at the Bronx Zoo, but instead lived at the Central Park Zoo. After his demise in 1915, Black Diamond’s mounted head became an attraction at coin conventions.

Established in 1978, the War in the Pacific National Historical Park salutes the sacrifice and courage of all the U.S. Armed forces that fought in the Pacific Theater of World War II. At War in the Pacific National Historical Park, the former battlefields, gun emplacements, trenches, and historic structures all serve as reminders of key World War II battles. The park also conserves and interprets a variety of amazing resources found on Guam. Snorkeling, fishing, and exploring the coral reefs are among some of the favorite recreational activities enjoyed by visitors to the site. It is also the National Park that lies furthest to the West.

Silver Valiant

DEALERS – Call the trading room to order 800.375.4653 or login to FizTrade.com.

The legend of St George and the dragon is the foundation of any number of fairy tales, featuring, all the key elements: an imperiled princess, a dragon, a brave knight on horseback, a battle and a happy ending. It is a story driven by the underlying messages of duty, bravery and courage. Perhaps because of this, St George has become a national figure for a number of cultures, including England.

In 2019, The Royal Mint has reinvented this well-known tale for the modern era and the overseas investment market.

Artist Etienne Millner’s energetic interpretation of England’s patron saint features prominently on the one ounce and ten-ounce Valiant 2019 UK Silver Bullion Coin. The action of the design seems to fill the coin, giving it an exciting sense of vibrancy and immediacy. It is a design worth cherishing and the perfect accompaniment to the permanent and lasting beauty of precious metal.

Silver Flag Bar

Silver Flag Bar – 10 ounce. This Dillon Gage exclusive offers a beautiful representation of the American flag and a testament to one of the country’s most hallowed sayings “United We Stand.”

DEALERS – Order NOW!: Call the trading room to order 800.375.4653 or login to FizTrade.com.

The obverse of the Silver Flag Bar is dominated by the 13 stripes and 50 stars of the American Flag. This symbol of national pride is instantly recognizable around the globe, even without its iconic red, white and blue colors.

The reverse displays the fineness and weight, but primarily displays the phrase “United We Stand” framed by scrollwork.

“United We Stand” has been a part of American culture since the American Revolution. The first use of the phrase in the colonies is thought to be in the fourth verse of “The Liberty Song,” a patriotic ballad by John Dickinson. This pre-Revolutionary War song was published in the Boston Gazette in July 1768 and included the lyric: “Then join hand in hand, brave Americans all! By uniting we stand, by dividing we fall!”

Founding father and renowned orator, Patrick “Give Me Liberty, or Give me Death!” Henry, used the phrase in his last public speech, in 1799. Swaying unsteadily, Henry proclaimed, “United we stand, divided we fall. Let us not split into factions which must destroy that union upon which our existence hangs.” At the end of his speech, Henry fell into his audience and was then carried into a local tavern. He died two months later.

In World War II, the phrase gained a more global meaning as the Allies embraced the sentiment. In 1942, Queen Wilhelmina of the Netherlands addressed the U.S. Congress saying: “United we stand, and united we will achieve victory.”

Aztec Calendar Silver

Aztec Calendar Silver Round. This Dillon Gage exclusive celebrates the intricate design that has come to be known as the Aztec Calendar. This new round is also struck in copper.

DEALERS – Order NOW!: Call the trading room to order 800.375.4653 or login to FizTrade.com.

The obverse of the round features the design found on the Aztec Sun Stone which is kept in Mexico City’s National Anthropology Museum. It is called the tonalpohualli in Nahuatl, the language of the Aztecs. This 260-day timetable is also called the sacred calendar because it was primarily used as a divinatory tool. The design orders the rituals among the gods. This is a key part of the Aztec culture or philosophy, as they believed without it the world would soon end. Aztec cosmology defines the universe as a very delicate balance between the divine entities who compete for power.

The Aztec sun stone, called Piedra del Sol in Spanish, is is perhaps the most famous work of Aztec sculpture. This late post-classic Mexica sculpture is 141 inches in diameter and 39 inches thick, and it weighs approximately 21.8 tons.

This monolithic sculpture was buried in the main square of Mexico City following the Spanish conquest. It was rediscovered in 1790 when the Mexico City Cathedral was under repair. It was then the sun stone was mounted on a wall of the Cathedral, where it remained until 1885.

The reverse displays the profile of Cuauhtemōc, who was the last Aztec Emperor of Tenochtitlan. Even though he was executed by Spanish Conquistador Hernán Cortés almost 500 years ago, his face appears on Mexican banknotes, paintings, and in modern culture. He is shown wearing the traditional headdress and jewelry of Aztec royalty. The reverse also bears the inscriptions of his name, the metal content, weight, and purity.

DEALERS Pre-ORDER NOW!: Call the trading room to order 800.375.4653 or login to FizTrade.com.

This bullion coin from the Royal Mint features the majestic Royal Arms. A mainstay of British coinage for centuries, this symbol of strength and majesty represents the illustrious history of monarchy and heraldry in the United Kingdom. First appearing in the fourteenth century, it is an emblem that identifies the monarch and their ancestry. The Royal Arms is still used today as a symbol of authority and identification and a version of it is used on several government documents and forms, including passports.

The Royal Standard, a banner of the Royal Arms, is flown from the royal palaces when the monarch is at home. The current variation, depicted on this 2019 bullion coin, features the lion rampant which is Scotland’s royal symbol and three passant guardant lions representing England. The harp represents Ireland and the Garter circlet surrounds the shield, inscribed with ‘HONI SOIT QUI MAL Y PENSE’ (shame on he who thinks evil on it). This 2019 design also features the leek of Wales, a highly unusual but contemporary depiction.

Incuse Maple Leaf

DEALERS Pre-ORDER NOW: Call the trading room to order 800.375.4653 or login to FizTrade.com

The Royal Canadian Mint has never produced a gold coin with an incused strike on both sides. (“Incuse” means the image struck/recessed into a coin as opposed to the standard raised relief.) The unique and unusual sunken format is challenging to produce, leading few mints to creating such coins. Thus a “double” incuse is highly unusual in the marketplace.

The now famous Walter Ott-designed maple leaf image is incused into the reverse of this Gold Maple Leaf bullion, giving it a unique look. The obverse image of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II is also incuse struck!

Enhanced Security
The RCM continues their landmark security measures with the Incuse Maple Leaf coins. Bullion DNATM Anti-Counterfeiting Technology is far beyond basic coin authentication. Every die used to produce GML coins is laser micro-engraved with an anti-counterfeiting security mark. Digital Non-destructive Activation (DNA) is an advanced technology that captures images encrypted with an algorithm signature. These images are saved in RCM’s secure database. Dealers can then use the proprietary Bullion DNA Reader and software to instantly verify an RCM coin’s authenticity.

This distinctive coin is also Eligible for Precious Metals IRAs,

Twelve proposed designs were developed by the U.S. Mint in consultation with representatives of Block Island National Wildlife Refuge. The Treasury Secretary selected the final design after consultation wit the Commission of Fine Arts and the Citizens Coinage Advisory Committee.

As with all the other ATB Quarters, the obverse displays the John Flanagan’s portrait of George Washington that is found on circulating quarters.

  • Michigan’s Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore
  • Wisconsin’s Apostle Islands National Lakeshore
  • Minnesota’s Voyageurs National Park
  • Georgia’s Cumberland Island National Seashore

The America the Beautiful 5 oz. Silver Quarter Series began in 2010 to commemorate national parks, monuments, and historical sites. Five new coins are released each year. The 5 ounce silver bullion coins are enlargements of the same designs depicted on the quarters that are in normal circulation. One site has been selected from each state, the District of Columbia and each of the five U.S. Territories — for the combined 56 locations honored between 2010 and 2021.

The Kookaburra
The laughing kookaburra is the largest member of the kingfisher species. 9grow to between 28–42 cm (11–17 in) in length). The name is an aboriginal loanword. In the original language “guuguubarra” sounds like the bird’s distinctive call. This loud call of the laughing kookaburra is widely used as a stock sound effect for movies and television shows that depict the Australian outback. It’s unusual call has actually been used for scenes outside of those in the bush, to lend an exotic flavor. It can be heard in The Wizard of Oz (1939), The Treasure of the Sierra Madre, Swiss Family Robinson (1960), and The Lost World: Jurassic Park and more.

The Kookaburra thrive in a wide range of habitats from humid forest to arid savanna, as well as suburban Australian areas that offer tall trees or flowing water.

When Queen Elizabeth II was crowned in 1953, the entrance to Westminster Abbey was lined with ten statues who “guarded” the way.

The Queen’s Beasts Collection of coins from The Royal Mint are inspired by these ancestral beasts of that have watched over the Queen throughout her reign, from coronation to Sapphire Jubilee.

The Falcon symbol descended from the reign of Plantagenet King Edward III who chose the symbol to embody his love of hawking. The white Falcon statue at The Queen’s coronation in the 20th century held a shield with a badge depicting a second white falcon within an open golden ‘fetterlock’ or padlock. The fetterlock and the falcon were popular emblems in the Houses of both York and Lancaster, as they had descended from Edward III’s younger sons John of Gaunt and Edmund of Langley. The open fetterlock can only be used by a noble with a claim to the throne.

The Falcon is said to be the favorite badge of Queen Elizabeth I.

Silver British Trade Dollar Round

This silver round is inspired by the British Trade Dollar. This 99.9% fine silver piece comes from a private mint.

DEALERS – Call the trading room for availability – 800.375.4653 or login to FizTrade.com.

The original British Trade Dollars were minted exclusively for use in the Far East. Both sides of this round display designs that closely follow the original motifs by engraver George William de Saulles. The obverse features the proud figure of Britannia holding her trident and shield that shows the British Union Jack. In the background is a merchant ship with its sails billowing that represents the might of the East Indian Trading Company.

On the reverse is an arabesque design with the Chinese symbol for longevity in the center, and the denomination in two languages:
Chinese: 壹 圓 – Translation: One Dollar
Jawi: ساتو رڠڬية‎ – Translation: One Ringgit

The original was issued to facilitate British trade in the Orient. With the extension of British trading interests in the East, especially after the founding of Singapore in 1819 and Hong Kong in 1842, it became necessary to produce a special Dollar so as to remove the reliance of a British Colony upon the various foreign coins then in circulation.

“China trade silver dollars” were a direct result of the First (1839–1842) and Second Opium War (1856–1860), which broke out when Chinese authorities tried to stop Britain from smuggling opium into the country. The loser, China, had to open up a number of ports to British trade and residence, and cede Hong Kong to Britain. In the decades that followed, merchants and adventurers flocked to these areas, and international trade flourished. Foreign banks were established and large silver coins from all over the world began arriving to pay for tea, silk and Chinese porcelain to be shipped abroad. These .900 fine silver trade dollars were then circulated throughout China, where they were readily accepted as a medium of exchange.
