2009 Turtle Dreaming Gold Coin

There is huge international interest in Australian Indigenous art, the oldest ongoing tradition of art in the world, which The Perth Mint is proud to portray on these innovative rectangle-shaped coins. The turtle coins are struck from 10g, 5g and 2.5g of 99.99% pure gold. The rectangular turtles coins are the perfect shape for the Indigenous-style art portrayed on their reverses. Created by Darryl Bellotti, an Indigenous artist of both Yamatji and Nyoongar descent, the design is inspired by his boyhood memories of a hunting trip in north-western Australia. The turtle is surrounded by patterns of dots, symbolising the hunters’ journey, and circles, representing the places where they stopped. Issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965, each coin bears the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the monetary denomination on its obverse. Each Turtle coin is housed in a beautifully illustrated presentation pack which includes Darryl Bellotti’s signature and his evocative description of hunting in the Australian bush. The pack incorporates a Certificate of Authenticity.
