Birch Gold Group Named Sole Authorized Dealer for Perth Mint’s New Platinum Florin Coin
The platinum florin’s design is an homage to the original 2 shilling coins Perth Mint first released as circulating coinage in 1910 – in fact, the original William Henry James Blakemore design is essentially unchanged over a century later (including the date). The Australian florin features the coat of arms of Australia: a kangaroo and an emu supporting a shield that displays the Southern Cross constellation.
The obverse (as with all Australian coins) shows Jody Clark’s iconic “fifth portrait” of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II wearing her Royal Diamond Diadem crown. Unlike the version of the portrait used on British coins, the Australian portrait shows the Queen’s shoulders and the coronation necklace she received when she became monarch in 1952.
“This fixed-mintage platinum florin is the third Perth Mint commemorative in the series of Australian florin commemorative coins available only from Birch Gold Group,” Patrick noted. “We’ve seen a great deal of interest from our customers, and we’re thrilled to make this platinum florin available the same year the Queen celebrates her Platinum Jubilee.”
In 2021, Birch Gold Group announced the first two fixed-mintage precious metal florins: a 2 oz silver florin and a 1/4 oz gold florin. This new-for-2022, fixed-mintage platinum florin allows Birch Gold Group’s customers to complete their collection of Perth Mint florins.
