One of the most beautiful Silver coins on the market, the Austrian Silver Philharmonic has begun to attract attention from collectors and investors all over the world. Minted by the Austrian Mint in Vienna, Austrian Silver Philharmonics are .999 fine Silver and are the first Silver bullion coins denominated in euros. While the Austrian Silver Philharmonics are bullion coins that can serve as investment opportunities, they are also striking additions to any coin collection.
The Silver Austrian Philharmonic coin pays tribute to one of Vienna’s most iconic symbols: the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra. Housed in Vienna’s Golden Hall, the Philharmonic Orchestra is considered one of the finest orchestras in the world. In honor of this prestigious orchestra, the Philharmonic’s design features a theme based on Vienna’s musical heritage. The obverse of the Silver Philharmonic displays the Great Pipe Organ in Vienna’s Golden Hall. The reverse depicts a medley of selected instruments from the world-famous orchestra. Through these designs, the Silver Philharmonic allows you to commemorate the magic and music of Vienna.

In 2010, the U.S. Mint launched its highly anticipated America the Beautiful Silver Bullion Coin Program, and now you can add the latest issue to your collection: the 2012 Denali National Park coin. This beautiful coin, like the others in the series, contains five ounces of .999 fine Silver and is backed by the U.S. government.
Established in 1917 to protect wildlife populations of the Alaska Interior, Denali National Park spans more than 6 million acres with habitats ranging from forest to tundra. The diverse landscapes of Denali are home to a wide range of wildlife, including grizzly bears, moose, gray wolves and snowshoe hares.
The reverse of this large Silver coin shows one of these majestic animals, the Dall sheep, in front of the awe-inspiring Mount McKinley, which at 20,320 feet is the highest mountain peak in North America. Surrounding the image is the text “Denali,” “Alaska” and “E Pluribus Unum,” along with the date, 2012. The obverse features the same design as the Washington quarters.
This beautiful coin is the final release of 2012 and 15th overall in the series. It would make a great addition to any America the Beautiful collection, or could be a perfect way to start collecting this series! Order yours today!

In 1990, the Perth Mint of Australia began minting an unusual Silver bullion coin: the Silver Kookaburra. These beautiful coins celebrate the very interesting bird native to Australia. The kookaburra is the world’s largest kingfisher and is sometimes called the “laughing jackass” because of its chattering calls. Each year features a different reverse design, and the 2013 is believed to be one of the stand-outs of the entire series!
The reverse of this year’s issue displays two kookaburras sitting on a tree branch, similar to the 1994 and 2001 designs, but in much nicer detail. Each 1 oz Silver Australian Kookaburra contains .999 fine Silver and includes prooflike frosting in the central design. The obverse of this Silver coin features a portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and lists the face value of the coin, which originally was $5, but was lowered to $1 in 1992.
The Perth Mint began in 1899 as a branch of Britain’s Royal Mint in order to help supply the Gold sovereigns and half sovereigns that were used as everyday circulating coins throughout the British Empire. In 1970, control of the mint passed from Britain to the Western Australian Government, which still owns it to this day.

In 2011, the Royal Canadian Mint released the first in what would quickly become an extremely popular three-year series: The Canadian Wildlife Series. They have released two coins in each of the past two years and have announced the first of two releases for 2013 – the Silver Pronghorn Antelope.
The pronghorn antelope can be found in south central Canada and throughout western and central United States. It is often cited as the second-fastest land mammal, behind only the cheetah, with the ability to run more than 50 miles per hour, though some measurements of more than 60 miles per hour have been recorded. However, unlike the cheetah, the pronghorn is able to sustain these speeds over great distances. For this reason, the pronghorn has few natural predators.
To celebrate this beautiful creature, the Silver Pronghorn Antelope coin features a pronghorn walking across a grassy vista, masterfully crafted by designer Emily S. Damstra. The obverse of the coin bears Susanna Blunt’s likeness of Queen Elizabeth II, which has been used on coinage since 2003. Like the other Canadian Wildlife Series coins, this issue has one full ounce of .999 fine Silver, making it among the purest Silver bullion coins available.
This first release dated 2013 has a limited mintage of 1 million coins, and they are sure to sell quickly, but you can order yours today from APMEX! Since this is the 2013 coin, shipping to you is expected by September 21, so reserve yours today before its official release!

The Silver American Eagle is the most popular bullion coin in the United States, and this is the most recent issue in a series that began in 1986. Adolph A. Weinman’s beautiful design showing Lady Liberty, draped in an American flag, walking gracefully as the sun rises over a ridge, appears on the obverse, while a heraldic eagle and 13 small stars appear on the reverse.
