Introducing the sold out final Northern Sky release, Cygnus!

A Grand Finale to the Northern Sky Series

Sold out 2016 Cygnus coins now available!

After selling out at the Mint less than 24 hours after its release, the third and final coin of the Royal Australian Mint’s Northern Sky Series is now available at ModernCoinMart (MCM)!

With a limited mintage of just 5,000 coins, these cosmically-captivating 1 oz. Proof Silver Domed Northern Sky coins depict the 16th largest constellation, Cygnus. Translated to the word, ”swan,” Cygnus is a Latinized Greek term that was appropriately given to the Ptolemy-discovered constellation after onlookers began to see a faint outline of a swan mid-flight in the stars.

2016 Australia $5 1 oz. Colorized Proof Silver Domed Northern Sky – Cygnus NGC PF70 UC Early Releases (Exclusive Australia Label)

Available in its original Mint packaging or certified as PF69 and PF70 UC with the Early Releases designation by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation, Cygnus makes a perfect gift for the special stargazer in your life.

Seen each year from June to December, Cygnus is one of the most-visible constellations of the Northern Hemisphere and is depicted on the reverse of this sold-out coin!

Truly light-years before the trends, the Northern Sky followed the Southern Sky series, which introduced the world’s first-ever curved colorized coins. Both Royal Australian Mint releases, these series influenced other Mints around the world to create their own, colorized, dome-shaped coins.

Be sure to place your order immediately to secure your portion of the few 5,000 Cygnus Proof 1 oz. silver coins ever to be minted. A concluding issue to a far-out series like this does not come around often!

MCM Exclusive: 2017 Archie the Dingo Coins

Celebrate one of the Australia Zoo’s most-loved animals!

The Royal Australian Mint has already issued a number of coins showing the famous crocodiles that reside in Steve Irwin’s famous ”Australia Zoo.” To continue this creative series, they’ve issued a 2017-dated coin commemorating a very special resident of the Australia Zoo — Archie the Alpine Dingo!

Archie was recently born at the zoo along with his two sisters, Jira and Eve. Unlike his siblings, Archie was born with impressive and very rare white fur! He quickly became one of the most popular attractions of the Australia Zoo, and gets plenty of attention from zookeepers and visitors.

2017 Australia $1 1 oz. Specimen Silver Australia Zoo – Archie the Alpine Dingo NGC MS70 Early Releases (Exclusive Australia Label)

Now, Archie has made his way into numismatics in the form of a 1 oz. .999 fine silver coin! A release that immediately sold-out from the Mint, this heart-warming coin has Archie’s name inscribed at the bottom, while he is shown resting on his haunches on the reverse. Although not a proof, this uncirculated coin is struck with very fine detail and a beautiful satin finish, displaying the white of Archie’s fur as frosted silver.

To create this coin, a beautiful partnership was created between the Royal Australian Mint and the Australia Zoo. A long-time supporter of the well-known zoo, the late Steve Irwin’s family is promoting Archie the Dingo Silver Coins. Steve, previously known as the ”Crocodile Hunter,” dedicated his life to the conservation and wellbeing of Australian wildlife. Survived by his wife, Terri, and two children, Bindi and Robert, Steve’s family has continued to pour their hearts into the success of the Australia Zoo and the care of its inhabitants — like Archie!
