Spinner Dolphin silver coin, minted in 2020 by the Royal Australian Mint.
In 2020, encouraged by the success of the country's wildlife bullion, the Royal Australian Mint began minting coins featuring the Spinner Dolphin, one of the country's most beloved native sea creatures. The animal is characterised by its almost human-like size, its face is elongated and its fins are almost triangular. Their name comes from the fact that they are creatures that, when they surface, perform acrobatics by spinning on their own body, something that sets them apart from the rest of their species.
The design of the animal is found on the cross: in the central part of the coin, it is depicted just as it projects itself out of the water, as we can see it with almost its entire body out of the water and with the drag of the water on its fins and trunk. The quality of the moving water and its reflections are magnificent: the sun can be seen in the background, which accentuates the beauty of the design.
On the outside of the cross, divided from the centre by a line around the edge of the coin, are the coin's specifications: series name, mint metal, purity and quantity.
On the face is Jody Clark's design of the monarch Elizabeth II, with a crown full of decorative elements, a beautiful pearl necklace and a level of detail in the hair whose wavy lines contrast perfectly with the straight lines of the crown. Surrounding the crown are his name, the name of the country where the coin was minted, the year of issue and the face value (AUD 1).
The 2020 spinner dolphin is minted from 1 ounce of 99.999% pure silver, has a diameter of 40 millimetres and weighs 31.105 grams.
