A major part in the Australian history will be the Bicentennial of Tasmanian settlement. The Royal Australian Mint has released a $5 silver proof coin to help celebrate the occasion. Tasmania holds a special attraction for all who visit her shores and this fine coin has been minted in honour of this special event. The design captures the spirit of the sea travel and exploration, the rich cultural heritage of Tasmania and her rugged beauty of her flora. The centrepiece of the coin is a commanding image of the Lady Nelson, sails full against the ocean breeze, cutting through the ocean. Other highlights include a map of the state and meticulously rendered leatherwood blooms which are native to the island. The Tasmanian theme continues with the coin being presented in a Tasmanian oak box. The descriptive card included provides the numbered Certificate of Authenticity. Another attraction for this coin is the very limited mintage of only 7,500 coins being minted. Be sure to be quick to order this coin as they will sail out. This coin is sold out at the Royal Australian Mint.
