This 2014 1/2 oz silver giraffe proof coin is the third in the five coin Mother's Love series released by Australia's Perth Mint. This is a limited release coin with a mintage of only 4,500. Each coin comes with a display box and a numbered certificate of authenticity. This is the third coin in the Mother's Love five coin series. The first two coins in the series were the Lioness and the Asian Elephant.
The obverse of this coin contains the bust of Queen Elizabeth II, surrounded about the rim by inscriptions detailing the coin's metal content (1/2 oz 999 silver) and its denomination in Tuvaluan dollars ($.50). The Tuvaluan dollar is actually a variant of the Australian dollar issued on the island nation of Tuvalu in the Pacific. The reverse features a colorized mother giraffe nuzzling her child with the frosted silhouettes of trees on the savannah in the background. The mirrored field of this proof coin provides an excellent contrast to the beautiful reverse design.
