Only 500 in existence - Now Sold Out
Since the introduction of the Swan Series, there have been a variety of designs, metals and finishes created. Now, for the first time ever, The Perth Mint has produced a 5 oz High Relief Silver Swan. This larger size showcases the unique second design in even more detail than before, making the mint's recognizable icon truly come to life.
This new addition contains The Perth Mint’s high purity .9999 fine Silver. This coin, however, is nearly four times as thick as the normal 1 oz Silver Swan coins. Each 2018 5 oz High Relief Silver Swan coin comes in a plastic capsule and a Perth Mint display case and ships with a numbered certificate of authenticity. As with other Swan Series releases, this issue has a limited mintage, with The Perth Mint producing just 500 coins.Shop Now
The Second Swan
The second release in the stunning Swan Series exhibits a new design showcasing an adult swan with a baby swan. Similar to the first release, this design features an effect of rippling waters, giving the coin a lifelike quality. Available in Silver, Proof Silver and Gold versions, this second issue is an ideal purchase whether you are adding to an existing Swan Series collection or just starting your own.
First Release Makes a Lasting Impression
The first 1 oz Silver Swan coin launched April 3, 2017, and sold out worldwide in less than two days. The coin's .9999 fine Silver content and low mintage of just 25,000 coins created the perfect combination of bullion and collectible appeal.
The coin’s low mintage and high Silver content made the Silver Swan comparable to two other highly popular Perth Mint series: The Silver Koala and the Silver Kookaburra. All three series feature yearly changing designs of iconic Australian animals and continue The Perth Mint’s history of exceptional production standards.
With many limited mintage series, such as the Koala and Kookaburra, around 3-5 years after the original release, the premium of a particular coin may increase due to limited availability or various other factors. The Swan Series, with three releases planned, is expected to follow in the footsteps of these long-standing series.
As The Perth Mint noticed the immediate popularity, a 1 oz Proof Silver coin and a 1 oz Gold coin followed in October 2017, with mintages of just 2,500 and 5,000 respectively. These issues gave a new look to the exceptional design, again in .9999 fine Silver and for the first time in .9999 fine Gold. Shop the entire first release today.
Exclusive Sets Showcase Second Release
For the truly discerning collectors, The Perth Mint released two versions of an exceptional 3-coin set containing the 1 oz Silver Swan, the 1 oz Proof Silver Swan and the 1 oz Gold Swan. Each set comes in a wooden presentation box with a numbered certificate of authenticity. A very limited number of these sets, both in a raw version and a PCGS-certified version, are available. Additionally, each PCGS-certified Gold or Silver Swan comes with a custom Swan Label that matches the beauty and elegance of the swan itself.

Expand Your Collection With Gold
Collectors of the Swan Series will be pleased with the option of a Gold Swan. Containing .9999 fine Gold and offering a low mintage of just 5,000 coins, these Gold coins display the beauty and majesty of the original swan design in a new light. The mirrorlike edge and central design, along with the rippling waters, pop against the matte background, making the swan truly come to life. Each of these Gold Swan coins is truly special and makes for an excellent addition to any Perth Mint Swan Series collection.
