Australia's Perth Mint Issues Coin
Commemorating the Evolution of the Alphabet

The Perth Mint is now in the middle of its 5-year series of proof 10 oz. pure silver coins featuring designs based on the tools or instruments that have helped man define his universe through the ages. The theme in 2001 was the Calendar, in 2002 it was Time, and for 2003 it is the Alphabet.

The alphabet originated in the Middle East sometime between the 18th and 16th centuries BC. This coin is inscribed with words in the following alphabets: Egyptian hieroglyphs, Ancient Greek, Roman, Modern Hebrew, Cyrillic, Cuneiform, Hindi, Arabic, Thai, Chinese, etc. The Perth Mint's "P" mintmark also appears. This coin is considered as part of the Kookaburra silver coin series, even though no kookaburra is pictured. Ian Rank-Broadley's portrait of Queen Elizabeth II is featured on the other side.

Only 1,500 proof 2003 10 oz. pure silver legal tender coins will be issued. Each coin is magnificently displayed in a black, free-standing case, and is accompanied by a serial numbered Certificate of Authenticity. They are available at the new issue price of $265 from official distributor PandaAmerica, 3460 Torrance Blvd., Suite 100, Torrance, CA 90503. Credit card orders can be placed by calling (800) 472-6327 or e-mailing info@pandaamerica.com. Add $11.50 per order for shipping and insurance. A limited number of the earlier proof 10 oz. pure silver coins -- the Calendar (2001) and Time (2002) -- are still available; price upon request.

*We ship orders when payment is received & confirmed.
