Each 2019 1 oz Silver Australian Bird of Paradise Coin in this product listing comes to you in a protective plastic capsule or a mint roll that contains a maximum of 20 coins. The coins in this release feature a Brilliant Uncirculated condition with a new effigy of Queen Elizabeth II on the obverse face.
The obverse of 2019 1 oz Silver Australian Bird of Paradise Manucodia Coins includes the sixth-generation effigy of Her Majesty to feature on Australian coins. Designed by Jody Clark in 2015 for the Royal Mint of England, this right-profile relief of Queen Elizabeth II is the sixth on Australian coins and the first since 1966 to include the Queen’s shoulders and neckline in the design element.
On the reverse of 2019 1 oz Silver Bird of Paradise Manucodia Coins is a depiction of a Manucodia bird, or Manucode. The Manucodia is from the family of birds-of-paradise and is a member of the Manucodia genus. The birds are notable for their black-glossed purple-and-green plumage. The birds are predominantly found in the lowland forests of New Guinea.
Large populations of the Manucodes are found across New Guinea, Jobi Island, Misool Island in West Papua, and in Papua New Guinea. The Manucodia has four subspecies that inhabit these various locales in the South Pacific.
Like the 2018 Birds of Paradise coins, the Manucodia design will feature on both gold and silver bullion coins from the Perth Mint. This release shares a common design element on the reverse that depicts the bird sitting on a tree branch, but this year’s design captures the bird in left-profile relief.
