This Proof Silver coin features an image of a Rainbow Lorikeet in color perched on a branch, design by Natasha Muhl.
Mintage of only 10,000!
Fourth coin in five-coin Birds of Australia series.
The design also includes the inscription RAINBOW LORIKEET as well as The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark. The Ian Rank-Broadley likeness of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the monetary denomination are shown on the obverse.
The coin is housed in a classic display case with a delicately colored, illustrated shipper and comes with a numbered CoA.
The Rainbow Lorikeet feeds on fruit, pollen and nectar with the help of a brush-like attachment on the end of its tongue. Pairs nest in tree hollows or palm trunks, where females generally lay and incubate two eggs.
This coin program is inspired by the birds that inhabit the continent of Australia. Because of the nation’s island status, many of these species are unique and breathtakingly beautiful.
Beginning with the Red-tailed Black-Cockatoo, and followed by the Budgerigar, Regent Bowerbird, Rainbow Lorikeet and Splendid Fairy-Wren, this series is not one to miss. These colorful birds have been brought to life with stunning artistry and attention to detail, by the inspired hand of designer Natasha Muhl.
