2022 Perth Mint Super Pit Gold Coin - 1oz
Bullion Now in conjunction with the Perth Mint is pleased to release exclusively throughout Australia this outstanding 1oz gold bullion coin celebrates the iconic Super Pit mine. Gold discoveries across the outback sent the world rushing to Western Australia in the early 1890s. The abundant finds included the celebrated Golden Mile at the mining town of Kalgoorlie, which is now home to the Super Pit. At almost 3.5km long, 1.5km wide and more than 600m deep, the Super Pit produces approximately 700,000 ounces of gold each year.
Struck by The Perth Mint from 1oz of 99.99% pure gold, the coin is issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965.
No more than 5,000 of the Super Pit 2022 1oz Gold Bullion Coin will be released.
The coin’s 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. As well as the inscription ‘SUPER PIT AUSTRALIA 2022 1oz 9999 GOLD’, the reverse also incorporates The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark. The Jody Clark effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the monetary denomination are depicted on each coin’s obverse.
The coin includes an authentication feature on the reverse in the form of a micro-laser engraved letter.
The Super Pit 2022 1oz Gold Bullion Coin is presented in a protective acrylic capsule.
