Details

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.

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. it also has a numbered certificate of Authenticity.

No more than 5000 of these will be issued by the Perth Mint
