Description of obverse and reverse
The design of the Treasures of Australia – Gold coin portrays an abstract interpretation of Australia’s stark and beautiful landscape – one of the world’s richest sources of gems and precious metals. The design, which includes the inscription “TREASURES OF AUSTRALIA”, surrounds a half-circle capsule containing granules of Australian gold. Issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965, the obverse design bears the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, bordered by the inscriptions “ELIZABETH II, AUSTRALIA 2010”, the monetary denomination, and the weight and fineness of the metal.
