More than just an opera house, it's a multi-venue performing arts center!

The dramatic architecture of the Sydney Opera House is one of the most recognizable structures in the world. Now you can find this iconic building struck on a proof that is the first in a series from the Perth Mint called The Land Down Under. Each $25 legal-tender proof is struck in a quarter-ounce of 99.99% fine gold and features Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II on the obverse. Each is certified and graded ‘One of the First 250 Struck’ in Proof-70 (PF70) condition by Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC). It comes with the original Perth Mint presentation box and a mint-numbered certificate of authenticity. As an exclusive distributor, the Perth Mint awarded GovMint.com the first 250 struck of a very limited mintage of 1,000 proofs. Hurry! Don’t miss out on this series’ first release with the highly desirable First Struck designation.

Year of Issue 2013
Country Australia
Composition Gold
Purity 0.9999
Condition
Graded
Coins that are inspected, evaluated and graded by an independent, third party grading service. After a grade is assigned, each coin is sonically sealed in an acrylic "slab," preserving the coin's condition.
Proof
A specially made coin distinguished by sharpness of detail and usually with a mirror-like surface. Proof refers to the method of manufacture and is not a condition. Proof coins are struck on specially-made planchets using polished dies. Proof coins are minted primarily for collectors and are not released for general circulation.
Grade
PF70UCAM
This is the highest grade a proof can achieve, based off the internationally accepted 70-point Sheldon grading scale. A distinction of Proof-70 Ultra Cameo, otherwise known as PR70UCAM, means your perfectly-graded proof has no post-production imperfections at 5x magnification, displaying all features and fields exactly as the engraver and mint intended.
Pedigree
First Struck
Coins with the First Struck designation are confirmed by their producing mint to be among the first minted in the series.
Currency Type Dollar
Mint Name
Perth Mint
In 1899, Britain’s Royal Mint established the mint in Perth to refine the large amount of gold being mined in Western Australia and to strike it into Gold Half Sovereigns and Full Sovereigns. In 1931, Great Britain went off the gold standard and Perth switched to striking other coins and refining gold. In 1986, the Perth Mint struck its first modern gold coin, the Gold Nugget Proof, followed by award-winning coins like the Silver Kangaroo, Silver Koala and the Gold Koala. Today, the Perth Mint's reputation for innovation and producing coins of superior quality is unsurpassed.
