Mintage of the one-ounce, 99.9% fine silver coin is limited to 5,000. As expected by the name, its reverse offers a design emblematic of an Australian Stockman.

"Lured by the mesmerizing yet harsh Australian outback, these early stockmen were instrumental in opening up the untamed wilderness of inland Australia as they drove their livestock through the untouched bush and scrublands," describes the Perth Mint in a release for the Australian Stockman Silver Coin. "The Australian stockman was a courageous and highly skilled rider, at one with his horse."

Previously issued Land Down Under series of silver coins depict the Great Barrier Reef and the Australian Gold Rush.
