Blending some of the world’s oldest and rarest elements the Perth Mint has applied its century-plus expertise to present a magnificent example of its artistry - RARE EARTH! Born of supernovas, precious metals such as silver were present in the cloud of galactic dust that coalesced to create our solar system, and our Earth itself. A supernova occurs during the final stages of a star’s life cycle and culminates in an explosion of titanic proportions.

Rare and brilliant, diamonds have been a source of both intense fascination and intense value for centuries. After forming billions of years ago in the overwhelming heat and pressure of the nascent Earth, they remained deep in the Earth’s mantle before being catapulted closer to the surface by rapidly ascending streams of molten volcanic rock! The unique and naturally colored golden diamond featured on this coin, aged at 1.6 billion years, has been extracted from the Argyle Diamond Mine in Western Australia’s spectacular Kimberley region.

Struck by the Perth Mint, Australia's precious metals leader, from five full troy ounces of 99.99% pure silver, and featuring a hand set Argyle golden diamond, this beauty is issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965 and is Australian legal tender. The Perth Mint will release no more than 1,000 of the Rare Earth 2018 5 Troy Ounce Pure Silver High Relief Patina Coin.

Astounding Design!
Sculpted in pure silver, the design depicts an outstandingly artistic representation of a star exploding into a supernova, with a hand-set, golden diamond at its center. The design includes a lava flow erupting from a volcano to form the layers of the Argyle Diamond Mine, in the Kimberley region of Western Australia, the physical origin of the precious jewel. The design also incorporates the inscription RARE EARTH and the Perth Mint’s "P" mint mark.

Rare Earth Metals
A rare-earth element (REE) or rare-earth metal (REM) is one of a set of seventeen chemical elements in the periodic table, specifically the fifteen lanthanides, as well as scandium and yttrium (scandium and yttrium are considered rare-earth elements because they tend to occur in the same ore deposits as the lanthanides and exhibit similar chemical properties).

For the same set of mineralogical, chemical, physical (especially electron shell configuration), and related reasons, a broader definition of rare earth elements including the actinides is encountered in some cases. Thorium is a significant component of monazite and other important rare earth minerals, and uranium and decay products are found in others. Both series of elements begin on the periodic table in group 3 under yttrium and scandium.

The 17 rare-earth elements are cerium (Ce), dysprosium (Dy), erbium (Er), europium (Eu), gadolinium (Gd), holmium (Ho), lanthanum (La), lutetium (Lu), neodymium (Nd), praseodymium (Pr), promethium (Pm), samarium (Sm), scandium (Sc), terbium (Tb), thulium (Tm), ytterbium (Yb), and yttrium (Y).
