Product Information

 

Despite its name, a starfish is not really a fish at all – hence the alternative ‘sea star’. Many of these wonderfully colourful creatures are at home in Australia’s tropical-to-temperate seas, and because they’re commonly found in rock pools, they’re one of the easiest for all to enjoy!

Proof Quality 99.9% Pure Silver

The coin is struck by The Perth Mint from 1/2oz of 99.9% pure silver in proof quality.

Coloured Reverse Design

The coin’s reverse depicts a starfish in colour and includes The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark.  Incorporated into the design are the inscriptions AUSTRALIAN SEA LIFE II – THE REEF and STARFISH.

Australian Legal Tender

Issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965, the coin depicts the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the 2011 year-date on its obverse.

Limited Mintage

The Perth Mint will release no more than 10,000 of these coins.

Numbered Certificate of Authenticity

Each coin is accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.

Stunning Illustrated Presentation Packaging

Each coin is housed in a display case with a stunningly illustrated coral reef shipper.  When lined up with other shippers in the series, it creates an extended underwater reef scene.

Five new inhabitants of Australia’s underwater wonder world are featured on Australian Sea Life II – The Reef series.

The second release in this series is a real stunner featuring everyone’s favourite sea creature, the starfish. The lifespan of this marine creature varies between 10 years for smaller species and up to a reported 35 years for the larger species. Beyond its distinctive shape, the starfish is famous for its ability to regenerate limbs, and in some cases, its entire body.
