The Perth Mint is pleased to announce the first 2014 designs of the popular the Land Down Under series.

Australia is a continent rich in history, with the famed Australian gold rush of 1851 triggered a period of radical transformation for the remote penal colony.  The population and the economy boomed at an unprecedented rate, bringing about new towns, cities, trade, cultures and infrastructure, seemingly overnight.

Although there had been isolated reports of gold findings in Australia since the 1820s, it wasn’t until February 1851 when Edward Hammond Hargraves discovered gold in a waterhole near Bathurst, New South Wales, that the frenzied hunt for gold gripped the country.

Despite gold being found across the land, it was the discovery by Patrick Hannan at Kalgoorlie in 1893 that ultimately resulted in Australia becoming the world’s largest gold producer at the turn of the century, with half of its output mined in Western Australia.

Previous 2013 releases:  Sydney Opera House, Didgeridoo, Captain Cook and Surfing.

Forthcoming releases: Great Barrier Reef, Australian Stock Horse and Rock Fishing.
