Obverse includes the image of the beauty known as Oriana. Reverse features the Perth Mints swan logo. The tale of Oriana originates in the romantic novels of the 15th and 16th centuries, particularly from a three-book collection written by an unknown Spanish author in the 15th century. Oriana is a fictional character in these tales said to be the heir to the throne of Great Britain. In a fourth book added to the series and written by Garci Rodriguez de Montalvo, Oriana finds a love interest in Amadis.Montalvo wrote Amadis de Gaula as the fourth book featuring Oriana. The work was published in Zaragoza in 1508 and focuses on a golden-haired woman of immense beauty.
These visions of Oriana inspired previous gold bar designs from the Perth Mint, but her figure has not featured on a Perth Mint product. Now, the obverse of the 1 oz Perth Mint Gold Bar revives this popular design with a new vision of Oriana. The beautiful Oriana is depicted sitting down with a bouquet of flowers in her grasp and her head looking down at the flowers. There are no other designs or engravings on this side, only the image of Oriana.On the reverse of the 1 oz Perth Mint Oriana Gold Bars, youll find that popular Perth Mint logo at the top. The swan of the Perth Mint is set in a circle with the words The Perth Mint Australia around its graceful figure. The only other engravings here are the purity, metal content, and weight of the bar.
