Sydney Cove Medallion Silver Coin and Plate Set

Sydney Cove Medallion Silver Coin and Plate Set

This rare and beautiful commemorative coin portrays the Sydney Cove Medallion, an extremely significant artefact made by Josiah Wedgwood in 1789 from clay found near Sydney Cove. The coin is presented with an exclusive fine bone china plate specially made by the Wedgwood company. The coin is struck by The Perth Mint from 1oz of 99.9% pure silver in proof quality. The coin’s spectacular ‘high relief’ reverse portrays the Sydney Cove Medallion’s allegorical design of ‘time’s opening scenes’ in the new Australian colony. Four classical figures representing ‘Hope’, ‘Art’, ‘Labour’ and ‘Peace’ are seen on the shores of a bay with ship in the background. Issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965, the 2010 coin bears the Ian Rank Bradley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II on the obverse, also in ‘high relief’. The coin is accompanied by a Wedgwood fine bone china plate. Depicting the Medallion’s symbolic scene and lines from Erasmus Darwin’s poem The Visit of Hope to Sydney Cove, its blue and white design is edged in platinum. Housed in a display case and shipper, the coin is presented in gift box packaging with the Wedgwood plate and its stand. Also included in the gift box is a numbered Certificate of Authenticity incorporating an informative text and historical images. The Perth Mint will release no more than 5,000 of these superb collector pieces. The coin’s ‘high relief’ obverse and reverse are minted on concave surfaces to ensure the optimum flow of metal is achieved by the strike of the die.
