2013 1 oz Silver $1 60th Anniversary of Oil Discovery Proof

Mintage of only 4,000!
This silver coin represents one of the most important discoveries in Australian history. This coin is official legal tender with a stunning raised image of 'black gold' cascading from the well. 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 beautifully illustrated shipper with numbered CoA.

When oil was discovered in Western Australia in December of 1953, it sparked jubilation across the country. Enhancing Australia's national independence, and providing a boost to the economy, this groundbreaking strike also inspired a crucial wave of investment in the search for natural resources.

5.0

The reverse side depicts a well site scene showing 3 oil rig men handling a bit section in the foreground with a well gusher spewing the "black gold" in somewhat high relief in the background. A hopping kangaroo is also depicted to make sure you know this is Australian history. Nicely done proof coin with excellent color.
