Product Information

 

The Perth Mint is proud to present this high relief silver proof coin commemorating the 400th anniversary of Dirk Hartog’s landing in Australia in 1616.

Hartog’s arrival here was the first documented European landing in Australia. On his departure he left a pewter plate inscribed with a record of his visit, nailed to a post in a rock cleft on the northernmost end of the cape, now known as the Cape Inscription Area. The plate is the oldest known record of Western Australian history and is now preserved in a museum in Amsterdam.

Proof Quality 99.99% Pure Silver

Each coin is struck by The Perth Mint from 1oz of 99.99% pure silver in proof quality.

Unique Reverse Design

The coin’s reverse depicts a representation of the view through a telescope of Dirk Hartog’s boat, the Eendracht, sailing across the ocean alongside a compass rose.  The design includes the inscription DIRK HARTOG FIRST LANDING OCTOBER 1616, a map of Australia, and The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark.

The coin’s high relief reverse and obverse are minted on concave surfaces to ensure the optimum flow of metal is achieved by the strike of the die.

Australian Legal Tender

Issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965, the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the monetary denomination, and the 2016 year-date are depicted on the coin’s obverse.

Limited Mintage

The Perth Mint will release no more than 3,000 of the Dirk Hartog Australian Landing 1616 – 2016 1oz Silver Proof High Relief Coin.

Prestigious Presentation Packaging and Numbered Certificate

Each coin is presented in a prestigious display case, within an illustrated shipper and is accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
