Discovery” the gold and pink diamonds coin, unique masterpiece at the price of 2.48 million dollars – Perth Mint 2018

Perth Mint presents Discovery – a masterpiece with a unique circulation. This extraordinary collector’s item celebrates the discovery in Australia of two of the world’s most precious natural resources, gold and pink diamonds. The design of the coin called “Discovery” depicts an ancient sailboat sailing on the waves, a gold digger, kangaroos and the Australian baobab found in Western Australia. It recalls the edifying history of gold and diamond prospectors, between poverty and wealth.

The 2 kg gold coin is decorated with four exceptional Argyle pink diamonds, two weighing 1.02 and 0.88 carats and set in the most precious metal. The coin imitates the “Holey Dollar”, one of Australia’s earliest coins.
