Another coin in The Perth Mint’s ongoing series featuring working features, the 2019 edition features an abacus! Known since ancient times, the abacus was created to assist merchants in the counting and recording of large numbers during trade. Featuring a number of beads sliding on rods, that apparatus is exactly what appears in the centre of this two ounce silver coin! Featuring a working abacus set into the centre of its 45.5mm flan, each of the two ounce silver coins has been antiqued to give it the feel of an old-time era.
Housed in a display frame, no more than 2,500 will be released.
