Clients in Austria and Germany will have the rare privilege of experiencing the world’s largest gold coin up close and personal in coming weeks.
The Perth Mint’s Guinness World Record holding 1 Tonne Gold Coin is travelling from Australia to Europe as part of a promotional tour to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Australian Kangaroo Gold Coin Program.
The colossal Australian legal tender coin, which is made from 99.99% pure gold, will appear at four city venues – each providing the public with a stunning opportunity to marvel at its impressive dimensions.
Perth Mint Chief Executive Officer, Ed Harbuz, said Europe was the Mint’s number one market for bullion and a natural choice for the promotional tour. “Working with some of our leading distributors, we’re delighted to showcase the centrepiece of the Australian Kangaroo Gold Bullion Coin Program across the region,” he said.
