Perth Mint offers pink diamond-studded gold coin worth £1.4m

Australia's Perth Mint has created a limited-edition coin featuring rare pink Argyle diamonds and valued at A$2.48m (£1.4m). The coin, dubbed The Discovery, is made of 24-carat gold, weights 2kg and depicts “a sailing ship and a prospector to signify the diamond-rich Kimberley region”.

A removable middle section shows a map of Australia.
The coin will be displayed at The Perth Mint until 28 September, unless a buyer snaps it up in the meantime.
