Andrew Cochineas of Pallion Group is excited to be working with the Hindu Council of Australia to celebrate their 25th anniversary, with a limited-edition gold and silver Bhagwan Krishna coin release.
These stunning coins depict Lord Krisna blowing a conch shell. The blowing of the conch by Krishna calls for awakening and invokes the path of righteousness and spiritual growth. The coins’ reverse includes the ABC Bullion brand mark and the weight and fineness (purity) of the coin.
Both the 1oz minted silver and 5g minted gold coins were created at ABC Refinery for ABC
Bullion, using 100% Australian gold and silver, and come in a presentation box along with a certificate of authenticity.
In 2018 Pallion Group was asked by the council to strike a coin for their 20th anniversary – creating the Sri Rama edition. This 25th-anniversary collaboration is a continuation of and testament to the long-standing relationship between the Pallion Group and Hindu Council of Australia.
With more permanent migrants arriving in Australia from India than anywhere else, and the majority following the Hindu faith, the significance of this relationship cannot be underestimated.
“Pallion Group and in particular ABC Bullion are honoured to be working again with the Hindu Council of Australia to create limited edition coins commemorating their 25th anniversary…”
Andrew Cochineas – Pallion Goup CEO
Two layers of value
One of the most attractive features of ABC Bullion releases is each coin holds two distinctive types of value: cultural, historical and artistic, as well as that of its precious metals.
Made to the same purity as their bullion bars – 999.9 for gold and 999.5 for silver – that precious metal value is recognised around the world. ABC Refinery, exclusive producer of ABC Bullion products, is one of the most highly accredited refiners globally, and Australia’s only independent refiner with London Bullion Market Association (LBMA), Shanghai Gold Exchange (SGA) and CME Group accreditation.
While the precious metals used in these coins are of the same purity as bullion bars, the Australian Tax Office (ATO) treats them as collectables and not gold bullion coins, so Goods and Services Tax (GST) is payable.
