This beautiful gold coin celebrates turquoise, a gemstone prized and admired by civilisations throughout history. Its special significance in Egyptian, Persian and Aztec cultures saw it fashioned into a remarkable array of striking jewellery, decorative mosaics and beautiful ceremonial objects.

Classic turquoise is sky-blue in colour and is generally opaque with a waxy lustre. Turquoise also occurs in hues ranging from blue-green to green, and with black veins that lend unique character to individual pieces.

Proof Quality 99.99% Pure Gold

Each coin is struck from 1oz of 99.99% pure gold in proof quality.

Unique Reverse Design

The coin incorporates a transparent circular locket containing a disc of turquoise. The locket is surrounded with a reverse design representing a Southwestern desert landscape, including a cactus, tumbleweed and vertical rock face. The reverse also incorporates The Perth Mint's 'P' mintmark and the inscriptions REASURES OF THE WORLD and TURQUOISE.

Issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965, the coin's obverse depicts the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the monetary denomination, and the 2015 year-date.
