2023 Perth Mint Super Pit Gold Coin - 1oz
The 2023 Perth Mint Super Pit gold coin is made from 99.99% pure gold sourced exclusively from Western Australia’s iconic Super Pit.
An iconic coins for many collectors, this coin has a low mintage of only 5000 worldwide.
Discovered during the 1890s, the Golden Mile near Kalgoorlie was once said to be the richest square mile of gold reserves in the world. Most of its original workings were swallowed up during the 20th century with the creation of an enormous open cast pit that is still expanding. To this day, the Super Pit continues to produce remarkable quantities of gold.
The reverse of the coin portrays an overhead view of the Super Pit, a hole so large it is visible from space. Extraordinary detailing highlights the pit’s stepped slopes and the roadways used by haul trucks. As well as the inscription ‘SUPER PIT AUSTRALIA 2023 1oz 9999 GOLD’, the reverse also incorporates The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark.
The Jody Clark effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, monetary denomination “100 DOLLARS” and dates of Her Majesty’s reign – ‘1952 – 2022’ are shown on the obverse of the coin.
For additional peace of mind, the coin incorporates an authentication feature 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.
Each Bullion coin is presented in an acrylic capsule.
