2013 Australia 2-oz Gold Sydney Opera House NGC PF70 First Struck Box #1
First-Ever First Struck and Perfect - Sydney Opera House Gold ProofThe Pyramids of Egypt, the Coliseum of Rome, the Great Wall of China and the Statue of Liberty share one common feature: They're all iconic images of their homeland. For Australia, that image is the Sydney Opera House. Situated in Sydney harbor, its instantly recognizable feature is its sail-like roof.
When it was designed, it was impossible to build. When it was built, it cost 100 million dollars. When it was finished, Queen Elizabeth II traveled halfway around the world to open it. When Australia decided to celebrate their iconic Sydney Opera House, they did it in gold. As one of the mint's premier distributors, we were awarded the entire "First Struck" mintage of this legal-tender 2013 Sydney Opera House Gold Proof. It features the Opera House iconic sail design and Queen Elizabeth II. Each is struck in two ounces of 99.99% proof gold. This special-mintage coin is graded perfect Proof-70 (PF70) Ultra Cameo (UC) by Numismatic Guaranty Corporation, and sealed in an acrylic holder with a label establishing it as one of the first 250 proofs struck. But, there's more. This coin is certified to be coin number one, the first coin struck!
