Another nice coin from Australia's Perth Mint the bird of paradise coin has a very classy look to it. Perth Mint puts out some amazing silver year after year, this has to be one of my favorite mints out there. Surprisingly as shiny as this coin is I didn't have much difficulty taking a picture of it.

Also known as Victoria’s rifle bird the bird of paradise was minted in 2018 and 2019. The Perth mint puts out many coins with animals every year and many of them change from year to year. With only 2 years minted and a 50k minting this is a really cool looking coin that I picked up randomly a while back. I only have one of the 2018 and don't have any of the 2019 but maybe in the future I will look in the picking up a 2019.

Thanks, from everything I could find they only minted the 2 years 2018 and 2019.

Another nice coin from the Perth Mint!!!
Yup, we stack alike, hehehe!!!

Very similar for sure, but you stack a lot more hand poured and bars then I do. 🙂

That's because a few of the pourers were my contemporaries! 😀

Cool, I love to theme collect coins with Birds on them. I'm a bit of a budding Ornithologist when I have the time and energy.

PD

Collecting silver is very addicting, once you start you see so much you want. lol
