About this Product
 
The Follow-up to 2017s Hottest Silver Issue of the Year! The 2018 Silver Swan!

The Perth Mint is truly on a roll! Each year they produce several 1oz silver issues, with their newest addition being the 2018 Silver Emu. But what if I told you the most exciting silver issue from 2018 WASN'T a first year of issue piece, but was in fact, a highly anticipated sophomore effort!

Fresh off their inaugural sell-out in 2017 (which took less than a day!) the Perth Mint's 1oz Silver Swan has returned in 2018 with a new design struck from the same .9999 fine silver as last year's issue!

The Silver Ground-Breaker: The First Series Completely in .9999 Fine Silver!

The Australian 1oz silver coins have always been a collector favorite, but after they made the transition in 2018 to strike the coins in .9999 fine silver it was taken to a whole new level! What many collectors have forgotten is that there was actually a 1oz silver issue in 2017 that had the same now-standard silver purity: the 2017 Silver Swan! To date, the Silver Swan series is the ONLY series with .9999 fine silver for every year of issue!

The new 2018 Australian Swan is a stunning silver piece that honors one of the most majestic birds in the entire animal kingdom. The coin's obverse design will change each year like the other annual silver issues from the Perth Mint, with 2018's Swan depicting a mother swan and her cygnet (baby swan) swimming across the water's surface. A ripple effect can be seen in the water around the swans, showing the incredible detail of the strike. The engravings "The 1oz 9999 Australian," "Silver Swan," and the "P" Mint Mark are also visible on the Obverse, while the Reverse of the design displays her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

Did You Know? There is a breed of Swan in Australia known as the Black Swan that is not found anywhere else in the entire world! (No, the movie was not in fact named after them...ha ha!)

An Incredibly Rare 1oz Silver Release!

The 2018 Australian Swan is also going to be one of the lowest mintage 1oz silver coins released this year! With a total maximum mintage of just 25,000 these coins are already many times rarer than their Kookaburra and Kangaroo cousins that typically produce hundreds of thousands each year! In fact, last year's had the same limited mintage and was a complete sellout in less than a single day!
