This 1oz silver proof coin celebrates the bicentenary of the construction of the Macquarie Lighthouse. Australia’s earliest colonial lighthouse, first exhibited on 30 November 1818, is an imposing 26m tall landmark on
Sydney Harbour’s southern headland overlooking the Pacific Ocean.
Still a fully operational lighthouse, it continues to help ships and other vessels sail safely through the entrance to
the harbour.


Each coin is meticulously struck by The Perth Mint from 1oz of 99.99% pure silver, and issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965.


The Perth Mint will release no more than 3,000 of the Macquarie Lighthouse Bicentenary 2018 1oz Silver Proof
Coin.
