Story

Wild thing

Brumby is the term for Australia’s wild horse. Brumbies that most famously roam the Australian Alps are descended from lost, abandoned or escaped horses that in many cases belonged to early colonial settlers like James Brumby. Free-roaming, independent and naturally adapted to its rugged environment, the brumby has become a national icon seen by many as symbolic of our national character.

Spirited horse

The coin portrays a spirited brumby with a raised hoof. The horse is standing beside a tree that is shedding its bark – a regular occurrence in the lifecycle of many Australian eucalypts. As well as fallen branches among strappy leafed native flora, the design includes the inscription ‘AUSTRALIAN BRUMBY’, The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark, and the coin’s weight, fineness and 2022 year-date.

Authentication feature

The coin’s reverse also includes an authentication feature in the form of a micro-laser engraved letter. Detectable under a magnifying glass, it is designed to make it significantly more difficult for the coin to be counterfeited.

Presentation and mintage

Housed in a protective acrylic capsule, the Australian Brumby 2022 1oz Silver Bullion Coin is subject to a maximum mintage of 25,000.
