Product Details
This beautiful coin features the great southern Australian continent in stunning Australian opal. Since antiquity, European philosophers speculated that a large continent existed in the Southern Hemisphere to "balance" those of the north.

Terra Australis was the Latin term they coined to describe the posited great south land which different navigators explored in parts until Royal Navy cartographer Matthew Flinders completed the first circumnavigation of the island-continent now known as Australia in 1803. Europeans were astonished by the exotic wildlife and extraordinary natural treasures they encountered. Familiar to First Nations people for at least 60,000 years, they included the isolated land’s famous pouched marsupials and opal, which in its most precious form flashes with a brilliant "play of color."

Opal is Australia’s national gemstone. In ancient Aboriginal Dreamtime stories, it was created when a rainbow touched the Earth. It is also known to indigenous people as the "fire of the desert." Today, Australia produces the overwhelming majority of the world’s precious opal, which when cut and polished can be used to create some of the world’s most alluring jewelry pieces.

Coin Highlights:
  • Contains 2 oz of .9999 fine Gold in Proof finish.
  • Extremely low mintage of only 200 coins.
  • Each coin is presented in a prestigious timber display case. Packaged with a special 30th anniversary illustrated shipper, each coin is accompanied by a numbered certificate of authenticity.
  • Obverse: The obverse bears the Jody Clark effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the coin’s monetary denomination.
  • Reverse: The coin's reverse encircles an opal insert in the shape of the Australian continent and celebrates Australia’s iconic animals. The coin depicts representations of a Tasmanian devil, koala, emu, kangaroo, wombat, bilby, monitor lizard, echidna, snake and frilled-neck lizard. Included in the design is the coin’s weight, purity and year-date.
  • Sovereign coin backed by the Australian government.
