2020 $1 Star Dreaming - Seven Sisters 1/2oz Silver Proof
Dating back more than 65,000 years, the Indigenous Australian culture used the stars in the skies as maps, weather predictors, & timekeepers, and as the basis of many of their traditional tales. Wajarri-Noongar artist Christine ‘Jugarnu’ Collard’s stunning artwork tells the indigenous story of the Seven Sisters, in the star clusters Pleiades, in the constellation Taurus. The Yamaji people of the Murchison region in Western Australia know that when the constellation sits low on the horizon at sunset, emu eggs are ready for harvesting. The second in the “Star Dreaming” series from the Royal Australian Mint, the Seven Sisters coin features a full colour design struck in half-ounce, 99.9% pure silver. Limited mintage just 5,000.
