World’s Largest Gold Coin Minted
November 2, 2011 by staff
The Perth Mint was produced in time for the Queen’s visit to Western Australia’s Commonwealth heads of government meeting.
The coin has a kangaroo on one side and the profile of the queen in the other. It is almost 80 cm in diameter and 12 cm thick.
Perth Mint CEO Ed HARBUZ said it was “an incredible challenge that few other mints would think.”
The Australian currency is five times heavier than the gold coin above the world’s largest, conducted by the Royal Canadian Mint, the BBC reported. “We think so, you better make it much larger than the largest currency will remain the world for a long time,” said HARBUZ.
“The giant coin is a great Australia icon symbolizes one of the most remarkable achievements of its 112 years of history,” said a statement on the website of the Mint.
Currency Australia is 99.99 percent pure and has a nominal value of 1,000,000 and Australia (U.S. and 1.061 million). The gold itself is worth more than 50 million and Australia.
