A glowing success… Ins Instantly catching the eye with a stunning synthesis of glittering quality, breathtaking originality and spellbinding colour, the ﬁrst Australian legal tender ‘glow-in-the-dark’ or coin co has proved predictably popular with collectors both in Australia and overseas. Collectors across the globe are always on the hunt for ‘that something different’, and Co the th latest full-colour coin in the Perth Mint’s highly sought after Australian Antarctic Territory (AAT) Series is a consummate example of the phenomenon. With the T spectacular appreciation of Aurora Australis – the glorious polar natural light show s also known as the Southern Lights – glowing in the dark after exposure to light, you could scarcely conceive of a more radical innovation in the ﬁeld of coin production. Only the third coin in the world to be enhanced with groundbreaking glow-in-thedark technology – with the ﬁrst instantly sold out and soaring in market value – the fervent interest in this coin is no doubt due to the originality of the glow-in-the-dark concept. It is also a natural result of the general, long-term popularity of the AAT c Series. One of the Perth Mint’s most successful, longest-running collector programs, S the th 7,500-coin mintage of eight of the nine previous AAT coins has sold out at the Mint. Unquestionably one of the standout releases of 2013, guarantee supply of this astonishing work of modern minting at the Ofﬁcial Issue Price!
