The Perth Mint is proud to present Discovery – a unique masterpiece with a world mintage of only 1.

This extraordinary one-of-a-kind collectable celebrates the discoveries in Australia of two of the world’s most treasured natural riches, gold and pink diamonds.

The stories of destiny and fortune are recreated through The Perth Mint’s exceptional artistry and meticulously struck in 2kg of pure gold. Four exceptional Argyle pink diamonds, including two exclusive stones weighing 1.02 and 0.88 carats, accentuate the detailed representation of how gold and diamonds were discovered in the vast Australian outback.

Adding to the historic nature of the original design, this Australian legal tender coin has been created in a format inspired by the holey dollar, the first currency minted in the colony of New South Wales.

An irreplaceable treasure with timeless appeal.

Discovery will be on display in The Perth Mint Shop throughout September*.
