Product Information

 

Proof Quality 99.9% Pure Silver

The coin is struck from 1oz of 99.9% pure silver in proof quality.

Coloured Reverse Design

The main design, which appears within the outline of Antarctica, is symbolic of the site of Davis Station on the coast of the ice-free Vestfold Hills. The coloured image also portrays the ice breaker Kista Dan, which was instrumental in the establishment of both Davis and Mawson Stations. The design incorporates the inscriptions ‘DAVIS STATION: 1957-2007’, ‘Australian Antarctic Territory’ and The Perth Mint’s traditional ‘P’ mintmark.

Australian Legal Tender

Issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965, the coin’s obverse depicts the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

Presentation Packaging

The coin is housed in a blue-coloured presentation case, which comes within a stylish outer shipper, accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.

Limited Mintage

No more than 7,500 individual 1oz silver coins will be released by The Perth Mint.

The fourth release from The Perth Mint's popular Australian Antarctic Territory Series celebrates the 50th anniversary of Davis Station, the most southerly of Australia’s Antarctic Stations. Named in honour of Captain John King Davis, the successful Antarctic navigator and Master of ships used on expeditions led by both Ernest Shackleton and Douglas Mawson, the base supports a large population of scientists during the summer season.
