Australian Treasures Opal Gold Coin

Buy Australian Treasures Opal Gold Coin, 1oz, 99.99% Proof, Perth Mint Australia

Australian Treasures Opal Gold Coin

The second gold release from our Treasures of Australia locket coin series encapsulates opals. Australia produces around 95 per cent of the world’s opals, including gem quality opal from the South Australian town of Coober Pedy, and coveted black opal from Lightning Ridge in New South Wales. This 2008-dated coin is struck from 1oz of 99.99% pure gold in proof quality. The coin’s reverse design portrays an abstract interpretation of Australia’s stark and beautiful landscape. The design surrounds a transparent half-circle locket containing approximately 1-carat of Australian white opals. A token of hope and purity in ancient times, opal is the modern birthstone of people born in October. Issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965, the coin bears the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II on its obverse. The coin is housed in a presentation case with a jarrah timber lid featuring a circular viewing window. The case comes in a beautifully illustrated box shipper. The Perth Mint will release no more than 1,000 of these gold proof locket coins. Each coin is accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity. Scheduled for release between 2007 and 2011, Treasures of Australia celebrates five glittering prizes found in Australia: Sapphires, Opals, Diamonds, Gold, and Pearls.
