Inspired by John Gould’s famous illustrations of Australia’s rich birdlife, the eye‐catching 2023 Eastern Rosella 1oz Silver Proof Coin commands attention! This lavish PURE SILVER coin is the perfect canvas for one of Gould’s most iconic and colourful images, depicting the exquisite Eastern Rosella in astonishing detail. EXCLUSIVE and part of a strictly limited edition, coin collectors and nature lovers alike must act quickly, as this one is sure to fly off the shelves – FAST!

Known as the ‘Father of Australian Ornithology’, Gould’s definitive and magnificently illustrated masterpiece, ‘The Birds of Australia’, gained prominence as the first comprehensive tome on Australian birdlife, exquisitely illustrated by his wife Elizabeth ‐ one of finest natural history artists of the Victorian age!

Showcasing the sublime illustration of the Eastern Rosella, taken from Gould’s masterpiece, our latest coin represents the cutting‐edge of modern minting. The most spectacular redhead in Australia, the Eastern Rosella is a medium‐sized parrot with exceptionally bold patterned plumage – in vivid shades of red, yellow, blue and green with spots of black. Found throughout south eastern Australia, they can be specifically distinguished by red head and distinctive white cheek patches.

The 2023 Eastern Rosella 1oz Silver Proof Coin captures a masterpiece of nature in an equally masterful strike. The birds are precisely enhanced in digital full‐colour and stand out majestically against the 1oz of sparkling silver. So life‐like, they seem ready to take flight! The reverse design features the JG privymark, struck in John Gould’s honour. Official Niue legal tender, the obverse proudly depicts the Public Seal of Niue across its 40mm diameter. Part of a strictly limited worldwide mintage of just 750 coins, underpinned with a Certificate of Authenticity, collectors and bird lovers will have to act fast to get their hands on this im‐peck‐able coin ‐ buy now!
