Product Information

 

Proof Quality 99.99% Pure Gold

This 2008-dated coin is struck from 1oz of 99.99% pure gold in proof quality.

Striking Reverse Design

The coin’s reverse design portrays an abstract interpretation of Australia’s stark and beautiful landscape.

Contains 1-Carat of Opals

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.

Australian Legal Tender

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.

Presentation Packaging

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.

Limited Mintage

The Perth Mint will release no more than 1,000 of these gold proof locket coins.

Numbered Certificate of Authenticity

Each coin is accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
