Limited edition Ainslie Exclusive - 1000 only 1oz silver coins - sold out in 1 day last year!
According to tradition, when soldier and pastoralist James Brumby was transferred from Sydney to Van Diemen’s Land in 1801, he was forced to release a number of horses into the bush. Known as Brumby’s horses and later as ‘brumbies’, the word came to mean wild horses.
Wild, independent, and successfully inhabiting a hostile environment, the brumby has become a national icon seen by many as symbolic of our national character.
Struck from 1oz of 99.99% pure silver, the coin has a maximum mintage of 25,000 and is issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965.
The coin’s high relief design portrays two brumbies cantering side-by-side with mountainous scenery in the background. The design includes the inscription ‘AUSTRALIAN BRUMBY’, The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark, and the coin’s weight, fineness and 2023 year-date.
The coin’s obverse bears the Jody Clark effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the monetary denomination.
