Artistry, craftsmanship and history combine in a new gold domed coin released today by the Royal Australian Mint (the Mint).

The 2018 $100 Gold Proof Domed Coin captures the Western Hemisphere as depicted on a richly-decorated 1626 map by English cartographer John Speed titled A New and Accurate Map of the World.

Royal Australian Mint Chief Executive Officer Ross MacDiarmid says the exclusive domed coin is the second and final release in the popular Terrestrial Gold Dome series.

“We have seen incredible demand for our domed coins and are proud to continue the Mint’s reputation for producing world-class and innovative coins with the Terrestrial Gold Dome series,” he said.

“The design of the 1626 A New Map of the World coin reflects the detailed artwork of a beautiful and fascinating 17th century map and truly captures the excitement and opulence of an age of discovery.”

Struck from one ounce of gold and finished to the Mint’s high quality proof standard, the 2018 $100 Gold Proof Domed Coin reflects the magnificence of the era and is expected to captivate collectors worldwide.

The coin has an extremely limited mintage of only 750 pieces and retails for $2795.00 (AUD).

The 1626 A New Map of the World – 2018 $100 Gold Proof Domed Coin can be purchased from the Mint’s online store or by phoning 1300 652 020. For international sales please contact your local distributor.
