Reefs around the world have often proven deadly for sailors throughout the course of human history. The reefs around the Australian continent have taken their fair share of ships down, including the reefs along Houtman Abrolhos off the coast of Western Australia. The Batavia is the most famous shipwreck on this reef and it capsized there in 1629. The 2019 1 oz Silver Australian Shipwreck Batavia Coin is the first in a new Royal Australian Mint series and is available to you for purchase online at Silver.com.

Coin Highlights:

  • Coins ship to you inside of a protective plastic capsule with a triangular shape!
  • First issue in the new Shipwreck Series from the Royal Australian Mint!
  • Mintage limited to 20,000 coins only!
  • Consists of One Troy ounce of .999 fine silver in BU condition.
  • Issued a face value of $1 (AUD) by Australia.
  • Queen Elizabeth II features on the obverse with a design that showcases the brutality of the Batavia’s aftermath.
  • The Batavia features on the reverse in its full glory the day it set sail for the Dutch East Indies.

The Batavia was commissioned by the Dutch East India Company as its flagship in 1628. In October 1628, it set off for the capital city of the Dutch East Indies laden with silver and gold to collect spices. The ship’s first officer and a junior officer had no intention of returning to Amsterdam though, steering the ship off course on purpose after rounding the Cape of Good Hope.

The two men wanted to use the silver and gold to start a new life away from Amsterdam and prosecution that awaited them there for heretical beliefs. The two gathered other crew members and passengers to participate in their mutiny, but by the time the ship approached Western Australia the mutiny was falling apart and the ship struck a reef, capsizing quickly.

On the reverse of 2019 1 oz Silver Australian Shipwreck Batavia Coins, you’ll find the Batavia as it appeared when it left the docks in Amsterdam for the city of Batavia in the Dutch East Indies, the modern-day city of Jakarta. If you flip the coin, the date of sinking, the ship’s name, and the coin’s weight, purity, and metal content are readable while the Batavia is featured capsized.

The obverse of 2019 1 oz Silver Australian Shipwreck Batavia Coins includes a bust of Queen Elizabeth II from Jody Clark at the top of the design field. Below her, a scene of chaos plays out. Following the capsizing, 40 crew and passengers drowned trying to get to shore. Among the remaining survivors of the sinking, 110 men, women, and children were killed by mutineers after the ship’s captain had left with a small party in search of food and fresh water for the survivors.

2019 1 oz Silver Australian Shipwreck Batavia Coins are available to you in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. The world’s first-ever triangular-shaped bullion coins, these specimens come with a triangular plastic capsule.

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.

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.
