With the market in freefall, the world is looking at the future of life and death coins.
But what do they really do and how do they work?
What’s the difference between a $500 Australian life and a $1 million Australian life?

Inevitably the first coin I wanted to find out was the $500 life.
Australian life coins were introduced in the late 1800s, when the Australian government wanted to control the value of the gold rush.
In the early 1900s the Government created a set of guidelines to establish what life coins would look like.
The guidelines required life coins to have a diameter of 6mm, have a weight of 20 grams and have a face value of $1,000.
In the early years of the 20th century, there were a lot of different designs and variations of life coins.
They included the $1m Australian gold, the $50 life, $500 silver, $1000 gold and $10,000 gold.
Each of these coins has its own story and it’s important to understand them all.
In 1894, a goldsmith named William Gantley created the $100 Australian life.
A similar $100 silver was created in the same year, but this time a different colour was used.
It’s believed the $1000 coin was made for the Royal Navy.
In 1900, another life coin, the original $1 Million Australian gold was created by a man named William O’Brien.
In 1903, he created the original silver $10 Million Australian life, with a new design.
It’s the first $1 life coin that was actually made in Australia and has no other designs to match.
The $50,000 Australian life was the first Australian life to be made in the USA.
In 1924, a $100 life coin was created to replace the $10 million Australian gold coin.
The first $50 million Australian silver coin was the original gold $10M Australian life in 1933.
In 1936, the Australian Government decided that the gold coin should be replaced.
In 1941, a similar $1.2 million Australian dollar coin was produced to replace $1M Australian gold.
This $1 billion Australian life has a face worth $1bn.
The world is watching.
The Australian Government issued $1b life coins in 2017 to replace their $10m Australian dollar coins, but there are no plans to replace this $1 trillion Australian life yet.
In 2018, the Treasury announced plans to reintroduce the $250 million Australian $50M gold coin and $100 million Australian$50M silver coins in 2018.
The government is not planning to replace these coins, and they’re only going to be introduced in 2021.
Australia’s $1tn gold reserves: The most precious commodity in the worldThe $250m Australian $5.5tn gold reserve, which was previously held in a vault in the National Museum of Australia, is now the world’s second largest gold reserve after the United States’ gold.
Australia currently has a gold reserve of about $1trillion.
Australia has a population of about 7.7 million people, and its total gold reserves are about $300bn.
Australia also has a $20bn platinum and palladium reserve, as well as a $4.5bn reserve for non-conventional reserves.
Australia is the biggest producer of gold and platinum in the entire world.
The US has a silver reserve of $7.8tn, and gold reserves of $8.4trillion, while Russia has about $3trillion in gold.
In total, there are around $10tn in gold and palladots.
Australia produced $835bn worth of gold in 2017.
Gold is considered the most precious metal in the earth, and it has an estimated value of around $2,300 per ounce.
The US has an ounce of gold at about $25.
Gold has long been used to fund war, and the world has a war reserve of more than $300trillion ($5tn) and is in the process of raising another $100trillion to fight the spread of malaria.
This is why it’s so important to have access to a reliable source of gold.
The United States Department of the Treasury (Treasury) released the 2017 World Economic Outlook for 2018.
Australia’s gold reserves were estimated to be $8bn, or $10.4bn for the first half of the year.
Australia produces about $4tn of gold a year.
The World Bank has also been keeping track of how much gold is produced and how much is held in the global reserve portfolio.
Australia will hold $7bn of the world gold reserves, which is more than double its current total of about 3.2trillion ounces.
Australia holds around 20% of global reserves.
The remaining 80% is held by the United Nations and other central banks.
