Limited Edition 2015 ‘Kimberley Sunset’ Coin
Introducing the Limited Edition “Kimberley Sunset” Coin.
This coin is very significant as it is the first rose gold coin of legal tender, $500 AUD and the only minted coin to ever feature an Argyle Pink Diamond. An extremely limited mintage of just 500 worldwide, this collectable 22ct rose gold coin contains 2oz of pure gold and is hand-set with a 0.04ct Argyle pink diamond (averaging 6-8P/PP/PR).
Beneath the ancient boab trees in the heart of the East Kimberley in Western Australia’s far north, the world’s rarest diamonds were formed more than a billion years ago. Argyle pink diamonds are a true Australian treasure, limited by nature and highly sought after by collectors and connoisseurs. Each of the Kimberley Sunset coins incorporates a superbly hand set Argyle pink diamond. The coin’s reverse depicts a boab tree amid a Kimberley landscape at sunset. An Argyle pink diamond embedded near the horizon represents the setting sun. The design includes the inscription KIMBERLEY SUNSET, the 2015 year-date, and The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark. The coin’s obverse depicts the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the monetary denomination.
The coin is housed in a black designer case and accompanied by a numbered certificate of authenticity.
