NEXT GENERATION SERIES FROM PERTH MINT Dillon Gage is excited to announce the release of The Next Generation series from Perth Mint. The coins are produced by Australian mint that is known throughout the world for its Koala, Kookaburra, Kangaroo and Lunar series of bullion coins.
A Unique Design & First-Ever Size
Now, for the first time, investors and collectors have a new, unique way to own silver that is part of the Perth Mint heritage but available in a unique size and design. The Next Generation coins display both a mother and baby of iconic wildlife in the Australian Outback. The first issue in the series showcases a pair of koalas on the reverse, while a portrait of Queen Elizabeth II appears on the obverse. Each Next Generation coin features micro-engraved radial lines for enhanced aesthetics and security. The coins weigh two-ounces, struck as a piedfort. The word may be new to many, but piedforts have been struck for over half a millennium. During the Middle Ages, France and Great Britain minted coins of double thickness and weight for presentation purposes. The word “piedfort” literally translates to “heavy foot” in French; it alludes the coin’s extra weight and metal content. While piedforts have existed for years, this is the first time the Perth Mint has issued a silver bullion coin in this special format.
