ELIZABETH II AUSTRALIA
1.8 KG .9999 GOLD
9000 DOLLARS 2018
The outer coin features a sailing ship and rowboat ferrying hopeful diggers ashore, while a 19th century prospector pans for gold in front of miners' tents. Adjacent is a vista of where pink diamonds were found. The Kimberley region is depicted by an iconic boab tree and kangaroos, with a brilliant cut pink diamond representing the tropical sun. With the first glimpse of one of these rare pink prizes reportedly glinting from the soil of an anthill, the adjoining scene portrays a worker ant on a mound of earth with an emerald cut pink diamond clasped between its mandibles.
|P||Perth Mint, Australia|
Inspired by the “holey dollar,” Australia’s first official currency, The Perth Mint in 2018 unveiled a Fine Gold collector coin that pays tribute to early prospector. With a mintage of one and valued at $2.48 million, Discovery is the Mint's most exclusive and notable numismatic release to date.
Created as an ongoing collaboration with Argyle Pink Diamonds' major authorised partner, Singapore-based John Glajz, The Perth Mint’s multi-million dollar masterpiece tells the remarkable story of two of the nation’s most treasured natural riches. Creatively inspired by the holey dollar which was introduced as Australia's first official currency in 1814, Discovery combines two of Australia's rarest and most precious elements. Every facet of its design is symbolic of the destiny and fortune pursued by early prospectors in their relentless search of gold and diamonds.
