Hidden beneath the Earth’s surface for more than a billion years, the world’s rarest diamonds were discovered glinting in an anthill.
A selection of precious Argyle Pink™ diamonds have been hand set into a limited collection of just 200 pink gold ingots, crafted by The Perth Mint.
Individually numbered and presented in a keepsake box, each Ingot is accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity.
The 2014 design pays homage to the provenance and extraordinary discovery of these precious gems. For more than a billion years, Argyle pink diamonds were hidden kilometres beneath the Earth’s surface.
First sighted glinting in an anthill in the mid 1980’s, the discovery was just a hint of the treasure waiting to be unearthed from what was to become the Argyle Diamond Mine.
