A true representation of innovative craftsmanship, the latest release by the Royal Australian Mint sees the mystique of the southern hemisphere’s cosmic wonders captured in one ounce of gold and struck in the highly-acclaimed domed shape seen in previous sell-out products.

At the forefront of creative design, this unique piece by the Mint is the first cutting-edge gold curved coin to be released within Australia and the first of the Celestial Dome two-coin series.

Mint Chief Executive Officer Mr. Ross MacDiarmid said that it would be remiss of the Mint not to develop something magical to follow the popular Southern Sky and Northern Sky series, in which all six releases sold out within a matter of days.

“We have witnessed an incredible level of demand for our domed coins with astronomical designs, so to extend this popular theme the Mint has pushed the boundaries to create a jaw-dropping two coin series, made of 99.99% gold,” said Mr MacDiarmid

“Continuing the Mint’s reputation of producing high-quality, innovative minted treasures, this Celestial Dome will be the centrepiece in collections around the world.

“As the first gold domed coin developed by the Royal Australian Mint we are thrilled to display our creative and engineering genius by capturing the elements of the night sky to such stunning effect.”
