Come, see Australia through silver coins!

When I was very young, my grandma gave me a big pouch of coins from Nepal and China, that would help me compete with my brother’s massive stamp collection.  Collecting coins ended as a childhood fancy, but I now wish I had saved those coins. I suddenly feel like pursuing a hobby, especially after I came across this. Needless to say, my heart skipped a beat to see  the silver coin range. I am all tipsy with excitement, and frantically posting, for you to see. Hope you enjoy this.

The Perth Mint’s collection of Gold, Silver and Platinum coins are astounding.  Representing all things Australian, the designs of the silver ones are clean, beautiful and even cute, if  may use the word. The categories include – The Dreaming Series, Australian Koala, Australian Lunar, Treasures of Australia, Landmarks of Australia, Lunar Series, Antarctic Territory series & Themed coins. The collection is huge and delightful!  I am not too sure if this is a collector’s delight, for I don’t think they are rare, and are of fairly recent origin. But I love the fact that a country’s different facets are featured so wonderfully in the form of coins.   Take a look at some  :
