Treasures of the south sea

Dating from ancient Aboriginal interest in pearlshell, Australia is passionate about pearls. Once famous for producing some of the world's finest natural pearls, the tropical town of Broome continues the tradition as the centre of Australia's cultured south sea pearl industry.

Iridescent mother of pearl design

Fashioned from iridescent mother of pearl, the coin's map-shaped insert is surrounded by images of aquatic wildlife - including a great white shark, sea turtle, seahorse, blue-ringed octopus, starfish and stingray. Included in the design is The Perth Mint's 'P' mintmark.
