Australia – Bush Babies – Sugar Glider – 50¢ – 2010 – Proof Silver Crown – Box & Numbered COA – This is the second coin from Australian Bush Babies, a beautiful new series that made an enormous impact with the first release portraying a cute and cuddly kangaroo ‘joey.’ The coin is struck from 1/2oz of 99.9% pure silver in proof quality with a large 36mm diameter. In her second outstanding design for the series, Elise Martinson portrays a beautiful little sugar glider with its eyes bright and alert. Sugar gliders are tiny tree-dwelling Australian marsupials that can glide through the air for up to 325 feet. At night, they come out to feed on insects and the sugary sap of eucalyptus and acacia. This gorgeous animal is perched on a frosted interpretation of native flowers and accompanied by its insect ‘friend.’
Comes in a Perth Mint presentation case with an individually numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
