Product of the Week: Australian 2012 Proof Silver $5 Color Domed – Crux Southern Sky


APMEX is constantly looking for new and interesting collectible coins to offer its customers, and the Australian 2012 Proof Silver Crux coin is no exception.

Australian 2012 Proof Silver $5 Color Domed – Crux Southern Sky

This innovative coin features a concave shape that adds depth and mimics the dome of the night sky.

Looking at the obverse of this coin is like looking up into the night sky and seeing the constellation “Crux,” also known as the Southern Cross. Crux is the smallest of the 88 modern constellations, but is also one of the most distinctive with its easily identifiable cross shape. Like Polaris (the North Star) for the Northern Hemisphere, Crux has helped humans throughout history to navigate the Southern Hemisphere, where it is visible year round.

The Crux coin comes with a presentation tin that holds the coin upright to show off its dome shape. Accompanying this is a certificate of authenticity and information about the coin and the constellation. The Royal Australian Mint produced only 10,000 of these unique Silver coins, which adds to their collectibility.

Whether you are a novice stargazer, an expert astronomer or simply a Silver collector, the Australian 2012 Proof Silver Crux coin is ideal. APMEX makes it easy to buy Silver coins by offering competitive Silver prices on all Silver collectible coins.
