Struck by The Perth Mint from 5oz of 99.99% pure silver, featuring a handset Argyle golden diamond and Patina finish. Blending some of the world’s oldest and rarest elements The Perth Mint has applied its expertise to present a magnificent example of its artistry.

Born of supernovas, precious metals such as silver were present in the cloud of galactic dust that coalesced to create our solar system. A supernova occurs during the final stages of a star’s life cycle and culminates in an explosion of titanic proportions.

Rare and brilliant, diamonds have been a source of intense fascination for centuries. After forming billions of years ago they remained deep in the Earth’s mantle before being catapulted closer to the surface by rapidly ascending streams of molten volcanic rock.

The unique and naturally coloured 0.035* carat golden diamond featured in this coin, aged at 1.6 billion years, has been extracted from the Argyle Diamond Mine in Western Australia’s spectacular Kimberley region.

The coin’s high relief reverse symbolises 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.

Accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity, each coin is housed in a special black presentation box that parts centrally to reveal the treasure inside.
