Australia is a continent rich in history, cultural diversity and unique habitats. The Perth Mint is pleased to announce the first releases from the series aptly titled, The Land Down Under. Showcasing aspects of Australia's ancient culture, its discovery, enviable lifestyle and iconic landmarks, this is the Mint's landmark series for 2013.
The Sydney Opera House was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site on 28 June 2007. One of the world's premiere performance venues, it is situated at Bennelong Point on Sydney Harbour in New South Wales, Australia. Brilliantly conceived, the design was inspired by the flotilla of sails and boats that frequented the harbour.

The Sydney Opera House boasts approximately a thousand rooms, including five theatres, five rehearsal studios, two main halls, four restaurants, six bars and numerous souvenir shops. The rooves or shells of the building are constructed of over a million glazed granite tiles, imported from Sweden.
The Sydney Opera House is a famous tourist destination visited by millions of people every year. Its unique design and location make it one of the world's most famous landmarks.
The Perth Mint will release no more than 5,000 1oz silver proof coins and 1,000 1/4oz gold proof coins.
