Comments

This NCLT Silver (.999) Proof coin was released by the RAM to commemorate Australian Fauna. Australia's arid and semi-arid spinifex grasslands have long harboured a secret, the existence of a beautiful and fragile little bird that for nearly 100 years was feared extinct. The night parrot was believed to be lost forever, but a second chance for the species came when it was rediscovered in 2013.
