It has more than one tonne of 99.99% pure gold
The world's biggest, heaviest and inherently most valuable gold coin, worth just under 54 million Australian dollars, was unveiled by the Perth Mint on Friday to mark the visit of Queen Elizabeth II.
The 1,012-kg coin has more than one tonne of 99.99 per cent pure gold, according to The Herald Sun.
It features a bounding red kangaroo on one side, and the Queen's motif on the other. It is nearly 80cm in diameter and 12cm thick.
“The giant coin is a magnificent Australian icon symbolising one of the most extraordinary accomplishments in its 112-year history,” a statement on the Mint's website said.
