The incredible beauty and grace of one of Australia's most iconic birds is deftly captured in the stunning 2018 $1 Powerful Owl Silver Proof - an immaculate, full-colour silver tribute struck to exquisite Proof quality by Australia's precious metal specialists, the Perth Mint.

A masterpiece in 99.99% pure silver

Struck from 1oz of 99.99% pure silver, this stunning coin was destined to delight. Through the addition of a striking, full-colour owl depiction upon its reverse, the unique appeal of this incredible bird is brought to life, in stark contrast to the mirror-like planes that form its backdrop.

Immaculate Proof-quality strike

Struck by the Perth Mint to Proof quality, the finer details in this 40.60mm silver coin's excellent design are brought to the fore. In the background, a second Powerful Owl is seen to launch majestically from the entwining branches of a tree, the perfect foil to the foreground's full-colour motif.

An Australian endangered species, immortalised in legal tender

The latest release in the hugely popular Endangered & Extinct Series, this Proof celebrates a species whose numbers are sadly threatened due to loss of habitat. Native to south-eastern and eastern Australia, the Powerful Owl is the largest owl species in the country, with a wingspan of well over a metre. Official legal tender of Tuvalu, this coin's imposing 40.60mm diameter is similarly impressive.

Numbered Certificate of Authenticity included

The attention to detail displayed in this stunning coin carries into the presentation, with each one of the 5,000 housed in a plush case within a custom Powerful Owl outer sleeve. An individually-numbered Certificate of Authenticity accompanies each coin, testament to its exclusive status.

A strictly limited edition - mintage just 5,000!

Exclusivity is guaranteed with this limited-edition tribute! With just a miniscule 5,000 pieces in existence worldwide - and flocks of fans keen to get their talons on this rare work of numismatic art - decisive action would be wise indeed.
