There are many types of skills the skateboarder can learn, requiring the ability to control the board and execute elaborate manoeuvres. Different styles of skateboarding include freestyle, street skating and vertical. Three of the most fundamental skateboarding moves are the kick turn, the Ollie, and the grind – with the newer moves involving thrilling aerial stunts.

Historically, it is believed skateboarding evolved from Californian culture in the late 1940s and early 50s as a land-based version of surfing and was referred to as ‘sidewalk surfing’.

The coin’s coloured reverse portrays a skateboarder performing a trick against the backdrop of a skate park and other skaters. The inscription SKATEBOARDING, The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark and the monetary denomination are also incorporated in the design.

Issued as Australian legal tender, the coin’s obverse depicts the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the 2013 year-date.

A great gift for any budding young collector, the coin is housed in an illustrated presentation card which has fantastic illustrations and information about skateboarding.
