New Argyle Pink Diamond Jewelled Horse Gold Coin - February 2021 News
The Jewelled Horse is The Perth Mint’s most prestigious release of the year. In common with similarly magnificent and rare pieces celebrating animals significant in Chinese culture (2018 Phoenix, 2019 Dragon and 2020 Tiger), the new coin combines the incontestable beauty of pure gold and Argyle pink diamonds in the numismatic embodiment of equine vitality, power and nobility.
Scenic Chinese Design
Crafted from 10oz of 99.99% pure gold in proof quality, the coin’s reverse artistry portrays a branch of Jasmine flowers and undulating countryside with nearby hills topped by pagodas. As well as the Chinese character for horse, which is derived from a pictogram of a standing horse with a flowing mane, it also incorporates the inscription JEWELLED HORSE and The Perth Mint’s traditional ‘P’ mintmark.
The coin’s pièce de résistance is a dazzling 18-carat rose gold representation of a rearing horse, pavé-set with 169 specially selected Fancy Intense, Vivid Pink and Purplish Pink Argyle diamonds weighing 2.76 carats. Two golden coloured diamonds from the Argyle Diamond Mine represent the horse’s eyes.
Interest in these rare gems has soared to new heights since the famous mine in Western Australia closed its operations in November 2020.
Australian Legal Tender
Issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965, the coin bears the Jody Clark effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the monetary denomination and the 2021 year-date on its obverse.
Limited Edition of Eight
Befitting the enormous skill, patience and time required to craft a numismatic masterpiece of this magnitude, just eight of these stunning objets d'art will be released.
Accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity, each coin is presented in a luxury, cabinet-style case featuring double-doors embellished with pink gold motifs and two additional Argyle pink diamonds. Inside, the illuminated coin continuously rotates through 360 degrees with mesmerising style and sophistication.
