The second silver release from our Treasures of Australia locket coin series encapsulates opals. Australia produces around 95 per cent of the world's opals, including gem quality opal from the South Australian town of Coober Pedy, and coveted black opal from Lightning Ridge in New South Wales.

The design surrounds a transparent half-circle locket containing approximately 1-carat of Australian white opals. A token of hope and purity in ancient times, opal is the modern birthstone of people born in October.

Issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965, the coin bears the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II on its obverse.
