The Perth Mint has released its latest gold and silver bullion quality coins which feature one of the world’s most prolific mines, in terms of gold production.
The reverse side of the gold and silver versions is designed by graphic artist Sean Rogers, whose artistic representation portrays a Komatsu excavator in the Super Pit open cast mine, and a headframe, or winding tower, such as the one used at the nearby Mt. Charlotte Underground Mine. The inscription SUPER PIT AUSTRALIA is seen above the primary design with 2022 1oz 9999 GOLD or 9999 SILVER the reverse also incorporates the Perth Mint’s P mintmark on the right side just above the Komatsu model 8000 excavator. The obverse side depicts the Commonwealth effigy of HM Queen Elizabeth II created by British engraver Jody Clark on the obverse along with the coins’ denomination of 100 DOLLARS (gold) or 1 DOLLAR (silver), which is included beneath the Queen’s likeness.
Gold from the mine was segregated throughout the refining and minting processes at the Perth Mint, ensuring that the finished product is 100% sourced from the iconic site. Each gold coin includes an authentication feature on the reverse in the form of a micro-laser engraved letter. Detectable under a magnifying glass, it is designed to make it significantly more difficult for the coin to be counterfeited.
