History and Significance

Dreamers, philosophers, poets and astronomers alike have always been enamoured with the stars. Artworks, song lyrics, popular sayings and famous quotes have often utilised these celestial wonders, from Vincent van Gogh stating, “For my part, I know nothing with any certainty, but the sight of the stars makes me dream” to Galileo Galilei’s declaration that “I’ve loved the stars too much to be fearful of the night.”

Gold has been revered through time, often evoked as a point of reference when discussing value, quality, class or desirability.

Since 1965, the Royal Australian Mint has been known throughout Australia and the world for its technological innovation, creativity and enviable craftsmanship in creating minted treasures.

In combining these three entities, the resulting creation is destined to be highly desired by coin collectors and those interested in the night sky.
