2010 $1 Sydney Cove Medallion 1oz Silver Proof & Wedgwood Plate Collection - $50 under issue price.Taking us back to the earliest days of colonial Australia, this stunning new release from the Perth Mint forms an inspiring tribute to Australiaâ€™s very first medallic issue â€“ the Sydney Cove Medallion. Comprising a superbly struck High Relief Silver Proof, united with a genuine Wedgwood plate, this exquisite, prestigious, historic presentation is sure to capture the imagination of collector and non-collector alike.
As detailed in the column at left, the Sydney Cove Medallion was created by the â€˜Father of English Pottersâ€™, Josiah Wedgwood in 1789 â€“ just a year after the First Fleet arrived on Australian shores.
A breathtaking piece of 18th century art, the Sydney Cove Medallion is acknowledged as a crucial Australian artefact, underpinned by immense historical significance. A fitting tribute to this original piece of colonial history, the glorious neo-classical design of Wedgwoodâ€™s exceptional creation has been enshrined upon an Australian legal tender coin by the Perth Mint â€“ struck to stunning High Relief quality!
A massive 50% thicker than a normal 1oz silver coin, this dramatic .999 fine silver masterpiece is defined by the extraordinary depth and detail in the design. Struck on concave surfaces to make certain that the optimum flow of pure silver is achieved by the strike of the die, the Perth Mint has gone to great lengths to capture the tremendous beauty and sharp detail of the Sydney Cove Medallionâ€™s design.
That the skilled craftsmen at the Mint have been successful in pursuit of that goal is evident from a single glance at this spellbinding $1 coin.
An original and inspiring complement to this flawlessly struck High Relief precious metal Proof, emphasising the outstanding collector value of the presentation, each set also includes a genuine, original, limited edition Wedgwood fine bone china plate â€“ bearing the same design as the original Sydney Cove Medallion!
Also bearing the lines from Erasmus Darwinâ€™s poem, The Visit of Hope to Sydney Cove (written by Darwin at the behest of Wedgwood to accompany the original medallion), the edge of this magnificent, imposing 200mm collector plate has been finished in real platinum!
A prestigious, historic addition to any collection, housed within a large, stylish gift-box presentation pack, the 2010 Sydney Cove Medallion 1oz Silver Proof & Wedgwood Plate Collection represents an unusual opportunity for the collector to experience Australiaâ€™s earliest colonial heritage.
