'The Ultimate' Obverse and Reverse

The Royal Canadian Mint launched the Opulence Collection featuring some of the world’s rarest precious stones including pink diamonds from the famed Argyle mine. To premiere this collection, the Mint has partnered with Heffel Fine Art Auction House to sell The Ultimate, the collection’s most prestigious showpiece. It will be offered at a live auction on May 31, 2022. The Opulence Collection, headlined by a one-kilo pure platinum pink diamond coin, was unveiled at the Ottawa Art Gallery. “The Royal Canadian Mint’s reputation for crafting coins of exceptional sophistication and artistry is known to collectors around the world,” said Marie Lemay, President and CEO of the Royal Canadian Mint

The Opulence Collection, featuring pink diamond coins in its inaugural year, is the result of a collaboration with the Royal Canadian Mint and Crossworks Manufacturing, a Canadian company and Authorized Partner of Argyle Pink Diamonds. With Rio Tinto’s Argyle mine closing in 2020, the pink diamonds adorning the pure gold and platinum coins are among the rarest in the world, making the pieces truly unique. Collectors interested in bidding on The Ultimate can register for the auction with Heffel. The exclusive numismatic works of art from the Opulence Collection can be directly ordered from the Mint at 1-800-267-1871 in Canada, 1-800-268-6468 in the US, or at www.mint.ca. Kunming Diamonds is the Premier Global Distributor of Opulence Collection products.

Released in very low mintages, the pink diamond coins consist of: The Ultimate: One-kilo $2,500 99.95% Pure Platinum Coin - Worldwide mintage of one Splendour: 10 oz. $1,250 99.95% Pure Platinum Coin - Worldwide mintage of five Grandeur: 2 oz. $350 99.95% Pure Platinum Coin - Worldwide mintage of 30 Treasure: 1 oz. $200 Pure Gold Coin – Worldwide mintage of 400.
