The coin’s high relief reverse symbolizes the creation of precious metals during an intense cosmic explosion. These elements were present when gravity slowly compressed the resulting dust and debris into new stars and planets, including Earth. This coin has been individually ‘antiqued’ to give it a unique finish conveying the surface abrasions of an ancient artefact. As a result of this treatment, the appearance of each coin may vary.
The design also includes representations of ancient lava flows and magma pipes which brought diamonds, formed under intense pressure and heat at great depth, to the Earth’s surface.
Thanks to a specialized surface treatment, the coin’s subtle and varying patina exhibits intriguing traces of elemental color.
Adding to the coin’s splendor, the exploding star at the center of the design is highlighted by a 1.6 billion year old golden diamond from the Argyle Diamond Mine in Western Australia’s spectacular Kimberley region.
Issued by the Perth Mint as Australian legal tender, the coin’s obverse depicts the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the 2018 year-date and the monetary denomination.
This Rare Earth 5 oz. Silver Coin is accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity, and each coin is housed in a special black presentation box that parts centrally to reveal the treasure inside. There is a worldwide limited mintage of only 1,000 coins.
