MCM Exclusive: 2017 Archie the Dingo Coins

Celebrate one of the Australia Zoo’s most-loved animals!

The Royal Australian Mint has already issued a number of coins showing the famous crocodiles that reside in Steve Irwin’s famous ”Australia Zoo.” To continue this creative series, they’ve issued a 2017-dated coin commemorating a very special resident of the Australia Zoo — Archie the Alpine Dingo!

Archie was recently born at the zoo along with his two sisters, Jira and Eve. Unlike his siblings, Archie was born with impressive and very rare white fur! He quickly became one of the most popular attractions of the Australia Zoo, and gets plenty of attention from zookeepers and visitors.

Now, Archie has made his way into numismatics in the form of a 1 oz. .999 fine silver coin! A release that immediately sold-out from the Mint, this heart-warming coin has Archie’s name inscribed at the bottom, while he is shown resting on his haunches on the reverse. Although not a proof, this uncirculated coin is struck with very fine detail and a beautiful satin finish, displaying the white of Archie’s fur as frosted silver.

To create this coin, a beautiful partnership was created between the Royal Australian Mint and the Australia Zoo. A long-time supporter of the well-known zoo, the late Steve Irwin’s family is promoting Archie the Dingo Silver Coins. Steve, previously known as the ”Crocodile Hunter,” dedicated his life to the conservation and wellbeing of Australian wildlife. Survived by his wife, Terri, and two children, Bindi and Robert, Steve’s family has continued to pour their hearts into the success of the Australia Zoo and the care of its inhabitants — like Archie!
