Each of the 2018 1/3 oz Platinum Perth Emperor Penguin Coins in this listing is available to you within an acrylic tube. This protects your coin during shipping and provides for easy storage once received. This is Perth Mint’s first-ever 1/3 oz platinum bullion coin and a new design of the emperor penguin is in use on the reverse.

Although the name emperor penguin suggests might, the claim to fame for emperor penguins is in their size. The average male stands nearly 48 inches tall and can weigh up to 99 lbs., making the emperor penguin the largest member of its species. Males and females grow to roughly the same size and live in breeding colonies on Antarctica.

These new coins are issued on behalf of the Australian Antarctic Territory. Claimed by the United Kingdom, Australia’s lands in the Antarctic are the largest of any single nation. However, its claim is not without controversy. Of all the signatories to the 1961 Antarctic Treaty, only New Zealand, the United Kingdom, France, and Norway recognize the claim of Australia to sovereignty in Antarctica.

On the reverse of the 2018 1/3 oz Platinum Perth Emperor Penguin coin stands the depiction of an emperor penguin. This species of penguin is flightless like all others and has the trademark contrasts of black and white plumage. However, the emperor penguin does have splashes of pale-yellow on the otherwise white feathers of its breast and ear patches.

The obverse of all 2018 Platinum Perth Emperor Penguin coins includes Ian Rank-Broadley’s right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. This fourth-generation depiction of the Queen accurately reflected her age with impressive realism when it was created in 1998.

Is my information secure?

We take data security very seriously. When you place an order with silver.com, your information is transmitted with the utmost SSL (secure socket layers) 256-bit protection. We also never have access to your credit/debit card details, as they are securely communicated directly to the payment processor (Authorize.net) and never retained by Silver.com. For this reason, we also don't process credit/debit card orders over the phone, as it is the least secure way to process those transactions.

In addition, all VISA and MasterCard orders undergo an additional step of user authentication - the respective Verified by VISA or MasterCard SecureCode programs. Upon completing checkout with a VISA or MasterCard credit/debit card, you may be promoted for additional details to confirm your identity and protect our customers against credit card fraud.

Finally, the data we do retain in our system, including but not limited to name, address, phone number, and order history, is never shared with or sold to any unrelated third-parties. Please review our Privacy Policy for full details on our data security measures.

How can I contact you?

Please feel welcome to call us toll free at 1(888) 989-7223 or use our Live Chat feature during normal business hours Monday through Friday, 08:00 a.m. to 06:00 p.m. CST. Alternatively, you can email us at help@silver.com and expect a response within 1 business day.

Please note, the Silver.com website accepts orders 24/7/365, so you can always lock in live product prices and make purchases outside of business hours.

Do you charge sales tax?

We are required to collect sales tax in certain states. You can review your states sales tax policy here: https://www.silver.com/taxes. You should always consult with a tax adviser for specific advice in your area.

Where does your spot price come from?

We use a live, up-to-the-second spot price feed supplied by Xignite.com, a worldwide leader in the data supply market.

Are your products actually in stock?

Yes. We are one of the few bullion dealers in the industry who only deems products "in stock" when we have them on-hand and ready to ship immediately. In the instance of a presale item, we denote that the product is on presale and the estimated shipping date. While we make the best efforts to hit presale dates, the dates are only estimates, given we cannot control mint production issues and/or carrier dealyes.

Why are multiple prices listed?

We offer a 4% discount to "cash" paying customers - with paper check, bank wire, and bitcoin payments being defined as cash. On many products, we are also able to offer volume discounts to customers purchasing large quantities of the same item. All volume pricing is laid out in the chart on the product's description page, as well as in the cart.

When do I lock in my price?

All prices are locked in at the time of purchase. Credit/debit card, PayPal, BitCoin, Ethereum, and Ripple orders are paid at the time of checkout, while paper check and bank wire orders require a credit/debit card on file to lock in your pricing while we await your payment. Please note, paper check and bank wire orders will NOT result in a charge to your card - we simple maintain the card on file while we await full payment by your selected payment method.

Do you ship internationally?

We currently only ship to addresses in the United States, including APOs.
