Buy the 40 Years of Friendship 2012 – China and Australia 1oz Silver Coin at The Perth Mint, featuring:
This heartfelt new release celebrates the friendship between China and Australia with formal diplomatic relations established in 1972. Since that time, interaction between the people of China and Australia has blossomed in all facets of human endeavour.
Cross-migration, commerce, travel and study opportunities have fostered interpersonal links that have led to an increased understanding of each country’s unique culture, history and geography.
Both countries are actively engaged economically, culturally and politically, incorporating memberships in organisations such as the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC), the East Asia Summit (EAS) and the G20.
The coin is struck by The Perth Mint from 1oz of 99.9% pure silver in specimen quality.
The coin’s reverse portrays the animal emblem of each country, the kangaroo and giant panda, headed by the Australian and Chinese flags in colour. The design also features the inscription CHINA AND AUSTRALIA 40 YEARS, in English and Chinese, the year dates 1972 – 2012, and The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark.
No more than 5,000 of these coins will be issued by The Perth Mint.
Issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965, the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the monetary denomination are depicted on the coin’s obverse.
The coin is presented in a prestigious display case and shipper that includes a specially designed and numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
