Introducing a highly anticipated new coin in the Australia at Night series! The fantastic flying fox  revealed up-close in 99.99% pure gold. The Flying Fox is enhanced by the signature Platinum Proof finish synonymous with this popular series.

Four species of flying fox are native to mainland Australia, found in mostly northern and eastern temperate climates and sub-tropical coastal areas. Instantly recognisable as that shadowy presence in the night sky (and from the unmistakable chatter emanating from the tree tops when the sun goes down). Intelligent and highly social, the flying fox is extremely vocal, boasting almost 30 different calls. A champion of our native forests, this hard-working bat does its part by ensuring cross pollination, distributing pollen and seeds across large distances. 

Although familiar from afar, these creatures are extremely illusive and it’s a rare opportunity to examine them closely.Viewed from up-close, the flying fox is surprisingly cute, with their canine-like faces, large eyes and impressive, leathery wings – all immaculately captured in this phenomenal coin. The pristine Platinum Proof finish contrasts enchantingly with the glistening gold, instantly bringing this mysterious creature to life under the light of a full moon! 

The 2023 $1 Flying Fox 1oz Silver Black Proof coin is also a singularly exquisite piece of legal tender!
