With the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games on the horizon, the government has announced an initiative to build greater opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, by working directly with indigenous groups and leaders. Straight from the impeccably-polished dies of the Royal Australian Mint comes the sensational 2018 2018 $50 Commonwealth Games 1/2oz Gold Proof: a bold, heartfelt tribute to this landmark cultural moment - and an official message for all Australians, immortalised in the world's favourite precious metal.

Designed by Larrakia woman Jenna Lee, the reverse design of this Australian legal tender issue is a triumph of fine details, resplendent in shimmering 99.99% gold. Each individual line is sharply hewn, creating a rich tapestry of texture that under a lower-quality strike would fade into oblivion, but crafted to the RAM's unrelenting Proof standard, is simply breathtaking. The words 'vision,' 'energy,' 'unity' and 'legacy' encircle the central motif, with the date and location of the upcoming games proudly inscribed beneath it. The obverse design is also significant, clearly confirming this ethereal Proof's Australian legal tender status.

The luxury of 99.99% pure gold is echoed in the prestigious RAM packaging. Each Proof is housed in a stylish display case, set within a decorative outer sleeve and complete with a Certificate of Authenticity signed by CEO Ross MacDiarmid himself. With just 1,000 released, however, this coin for all Australians will sadly be enjoyed by a privileged few. To be one of just 1,000 successful owners, prompt action is a must.
