2021 Super Pit 1oz .9999 Gold Bullion Coin
The Super Pit, situated adjacent to the historic mining town of Kalgoorlie some 600 kilometres inland from Perth, is one of the world’s greatest open cast gold mines. The original diggings, which started back in 1893, sparked the Western Australian gold rush and provided the impetus for the opening of The Perth Mint. Still contributing large quantities of gold, this massive mine is 3.5 kilometres long, 1.5 kilometres wide and more than 600 metres deep – and is continuing to expand.
Struck by The Perth Mint from 1oz of 99.99% pure gold, the coin is issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965.
No more than 15,000 of the Super Pit 2021 1oz Gold Bullion Coin will be released.
The coin’s reverse portrays original artistry of the awe-inspiring mine. As well as the depiction of this spectacular landmark, the design includes the inscription ‘SUPER PIT AUSTRALIA 1OZ 9999 GOLD’ and The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark.
The Jody Clark effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the monetary denomination are depicted on each coin’s obverse.
The Super Pit 2021 1oz Gold Bullion Coin is presented in a protective acrylic capsule.
