The coin’s reverse portrays an abstract interpretation of the Australian landscape, one of the world’s richest sources of gems and precious metals. The coin also incorporates a transparent locket containing three granules of pure Australian gold weighing a minimum of 0.50g.
Glittering gold – its allure is legendary. Sought after for more than 7,000 years, it is a symbol of ageless splendour, wealth and power. In the second half of the nineteenth century, Australian prospectors discovered gold in large quantities, making two of the world’s most prolific gold strikes in the states of Victoria and Western Australia. Still one of the world’s largest producers, Australia’s gold is used in the creation of precious coins, gold bars and beautiful jewellery.
The coin’s obverse depicts the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the 2010 year-date.
No more than 7,500 of these coins will be struck by The Perth Mint.
