Product Information

 

The eighth release in the Australian Opal Series features the Ghost Bat. The Ghost Bat is native to Australia and the only bat in the country that is carnivorous. The bat is named for the extremely thin membrane of its wings that makes it appear ghostly at night. These nocturnal creatures live in caves across the northern part of Australia.

Proof Quality 99.9% Pure Silver

Each coin is struck by The Perth Mint from 1oz of 99.9% pure silver in proof quality.

Beautiful Authentic Australian Opal

The coin’s reverse incorporates an inner panel of pure Australian opal, featuring a flying Ghost Bat design. The outer panel of the coin features intricate caves and Kurrajong flowers. The design includes the inscription GHOST BAT, the 2015 year-date, and The Perth Mint’s traditional ‘P’ mintmark.

Australian Legal Tender

Issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965, the coin’s obverse depicts the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the monetary denomination.

Limited Mintage

The Perth Mint will release no more than 8,000 of the Australian Opal Series – Ghost Bat 2015 1oz Silver Proof Coin.

Gorgeous Illustrated Presentation Packaging and Numbered Certificate

The coin is presented in a prestigious display case with a light, which turns on as you open the lid, to represent the moon shining down on the nocturnal creature. The coin is accompanied by a stunning illustrated shipper and a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
