Simon Trott, managing director of Rio Tinto’s diamonds business said “We are delighted to collaborate with The Perth Mint on the exclusive release of this distinctive investment piece. It is a beautiful symbol of the unique treasures of Western Australia and sets a new benchmark in limited edition craftsmanship.”

The Argyle Diamond Mine produces a very small proportion of rare pink diamonds and an even smaller proportion of rare red diamonds. On average one carat of rare red diamonds a year is produced from the Argyle mine.

The Kimberley Treasure is available for sale from The Perth Mint +61 8 9421 7218 (International), or visit www.perthmint.com.
