The Macquarie Lighthouse is a remarkable Sydney landmark and one of Australia’s most significant early structures. Designed by convict architect Francis Greenway, the nation’s first lighthouse was regarded by Governor Lachlan Macquarie as a “noble, magnificent edifice”. Reconstructed 60 years later, it has now been helping ships navigate their way safely into Sydney Harbour for 200 years.

This bicentenary coin is meticulously struck from 1oz of 99.99% pure silver to our renowned proof standard combining a mirror-like polished background with delicately frosted relief.

Incorporating the number 200, the coin’s reverse pictures Greenway’s original design with a symbolic beam of light emerging from the Fresnel lens-like glow at the top of the tower.

With a maximum mintage of just 3,000, the coin represents a rare opportunity to honour the important role of the Macquarie Lighthouse and all those who have contributed to its construction, maintenance and continuous operation since 1818.
