Media Release

To mark the 800th anniversary of Magna Carta, in a Royal Australian Mint first, a meaningful section of the Great Charter has been etched forever onto a unique rectangular collectible fine silver coin and launched today at Australian Parliament House’s official Magna Carta celebrations.

The coin features an intricate inscription in Latin, derived from the 1297 Inspeximus issue held at the Australian Parliament House and chosen for its continued relevance in today’s society, translated as: 'We furthermore grant and give to all the free men of our realm for ourselves and our heirs in perpetuity the liberties written below to have and to hold to them and their heirs from us and our heirs in perpetuity.’

The Mint’s first rectangular coin is fittingly symbolic of the shape of the Great Charter and each one has been hand-crafted and features an antique finish to provide a close and personal experience as the coins are not encased in capsules like other collectible coins.
