This 1oz silver coin is presented in a contemporary latex case which displays both sides of the coin and is accompanied by an illustrated shipper and a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.

The reverse of the coin features a coloured representation of Ganesha holding a lotus flower and an ornamental axe, with a mouse at his feet. The design includes the inscription ‘happy diwali’ and The Perth Mint’s traditional ‘P’ mintmark.

The obverse depicts the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the monetary denomination, and the 2018 year-date.

Diwali is an ancient five day Hindu ‘festival of lights’. Celebrated by millions of Hindus, Sikhs, Jains, and some Buddhists around the world, it is considered one of the happiest holidays in India and Nepal. The main theme of the festival is the triumph of light over darkness, goodness over evil, knowledge over ignorance, and hope over despair.

During Diwali Ganesha is revered as the deity of intellect, the patron of arts and sciences, and remover of obstacles. He is worshipped with Lakshmi to welcome wisdom along with wealth.

Ganesha is typically portrayed with the head of an elephant, a rotund belly and four arms. He is often depicted holding an axe to cut down ignorance and a lotus flower, the symbol of enlightenment, with a rat or mouse at his feet.

Struck by The Perth Mint from 1oz of 99.99% pure silver, each coin is issued as legal tender under the authority of the Government of Tuvalu.

Perth Mint coins come encased in a hard clear plastic case to help keep coins in pristine condition. Ainslie Bullion recommends leaving these cases un-tampered for the best preservation of value.
The Perth Mint is Australia’s leading precious metal refiner. Backed by the Western Australian Government, The Perth Mint has produced the official bullion coin program since 1987. The Perth Mint also produces a large range of high quality gold and silver bars. All Perth Mint gold products are refined to 99.99% purity and all silver products are refined to 99.99% purity. Ainslie Bullion is a Primary Bullion Distributor for Perth Mint.

Coins are a popular choice of bullion given their legal tender status (Government backing of the coin and its metal content), often smaller in size (making for easier disposal in the event of large price increases), international recognition (no fuss tradability overseas) and portability. Another common advantage is mintage limits on many government minted coins meaning a “collectible” premium can often be realised. Caution should be exercised in buying coins over bars for your Super as they can be classified as a collectible and need special storage. Refer to the ATO or your advisor for more information. Coins can make for the perfect gift as you can match the year or Lunar Year to the recipient to celebrate an event.
