To celebrate Queen Elizabeth II's Diamond Jubilee on the 5th June 2012, the Perth Mint have produced a one kilo silver proof coin.
We discussed the Diamond Jubilee releases with the Perth Mint at the Berlin Money Fair in February and had some input to the design of this coin. The Perth Mint are always good value for money so we took a plunge and bought the lot! This coin is exclusive to Chard, except for the Perth Mint of course!
The obverse depicts the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of the Queen, with the inscription: ELIZABETH II AUSTRALIA 1KG .999 SILVER 2012 30 DOLLARS
The reverse features the St. Edward's Crown, edged by sixty diamond motifs, one to represent each year of Her Majesty's reign, with the inscription: DIAMOND JUBILEE 1952 - 2012
