Own a Piece of Australia’s Epic “Super Pit” – One of Largest Gold Mines in the World
If you're willing to endure a 15-hour plane flight and then withstand blistering temperatures that routinely top 110 degrees most of the year, then you’re welcome to take a tour of Australia’s Fimiston Open Pit, one of the largest open-pit gold mines in the world – and one of only a few that are open to the general public. If you’re up to the challenge, your eyes will surely be dazzled by the massive canyon-size hole so large that it’s visible from space!
Known colloquially as the “Super Pit,” the Fimiston Open Pit represents several underground mines near Kalgoorlie in Western Australia that were consolidated into a single open pit mine in 1989. The Super Pit is located in an area that was once called “The Golden Mile,” so named for its copious amounts of gold that made it one of the richest square miles on Earth. Today, the pit is more than 2 miles long, nearly a mile wide and is almost 2,000 feet deep.
Now, on the 30th Anniversary of the Super Pit’s birth, Australia is releasing a coin befitting its awe-inspiring namesake. The 2019 Super Pit coin was struck in a full ounce of 99.99% pure silver. The design on this sumptuous $1 legal-tender coin artfully depicts the monumental gold mine set against a backdrop of a blazing Australian sun – just as it would look if you were able to make the trip to the remote area in Western Australia.
Your 2019 Australia One-Ounce Silver Super Pit Coin has been graded by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) as being in near-perfect Mint State-69 (MS69) condition, a distinction that means your almost-flawless coin will showcase an impressive full strike and indistinguishable imperfections – well above and beyond the quality of the vast majority of coins in the series. In addition, these coins feature a security feature that can be found on the reverse in the form of a micro-laser engraved letter that is detectable only under a magnifying glass. You coin will also come sonically sealed in an acrylic holder with an exclusive Sydney Opera House label.
Just 100,000 of these incredible silver coins will be struck for worldwide release – a relatively small number when you factor in all the collectors, historians and silver stackers who would like to get their hands on this silver bullion coin. In fact, it has been announced as being completely sold out at the mint! Avoid the crowds – and the 15-hour plane flight – and click one to your cart right now!
