CoinGold Ounce 2022 Wildflowers of Australia - Waratah

The Australian one-ounce gold piece (abbreviated as 1 oz and designated with Au for "gold") is a bullion coin format. Uniquely, in Australia there are two mints authorised to strike legal tender: the Royal Australian Mint (which also makes the country's circulating coinage) and the Perth Mint which only makes collector and bullion coins, as well as other bullion products.

Both mints endeavour to create coins with attractive designs, and to introduce new designs and themes often, in order to raise the numismatic value of the coins over the value of previous metal used.

This design is the first issue in a premium bullion coin series called Wildflowers of Australia, and features the Waratah.

The Mint says about it:
Australia’s iconic wildflower, the Waratah, is beautifully presented in the Royal Australian Mint’s most recent investment coin series - Wildflowers of Australia. The gold and silver coins feature an intricate design that showcases one of Australia’s most recognisable and striking flowers, endemic to southeastern Australia. Both coins will be sought after by precious metal investors and entry-level collectors, with the gold coin featuring three levels of security for added protection.

The obverse of the coin shows, in a small circle, the crowned old head of Queen Elizabeth II facing right, wearing the Royal Diamond Diadem crown and the Victoria Coronation necklace worn for her Coronation. This is her effigy known as the "Fifth Portrait" worldwide and "Sixth Portrait" in Australia, in "uncouped" version - showing the Queen's shoulders and not terminating at the neck as the normal version. On the left, in small letters on the Queen's shoulder, the artist's initials JC (for Jody Clark). Around above, the monarch's legend and the date of issue: ELIZABETH II · AUSTRALIA 2022.

Most of the obverse is taken by floral decorations featuring Waratah flowers.

Around above left, an inscription specifying the precious metal content: 1 oz .9999 Au (one troy ounce of 99.99% gold; Au is abbreviated from Aurum, the Latin word for gold).
