Art teacher-turned-coin designer, Stuart Devlin – the man behind Australia’s other circulating coin designs – was again chosen to submit a piece of unique Australian artwork.
The result was an astounding, now iconic, image.
Fittingly, the strength and resilience captured in Devlin’s five bounding kangaroos design embodied the key properties of the new coin itself.
To celebrate the 30th anniversary of the issue of the first Australian $1 coin, the Royal Australian Mint has produced this special colour printed uncirculated coin using world-leading printing technology. Originally released as part of the Mint’s highly popular 2014 Six Coin Year Sets, collectors now have the opportunity to secure these charming coins individually.
The detailed, earthy colours of the bounding kangaroos help to bring the $1 coin to life like never before and, in doing so, ensure that this piece of numismatic history will appeal to collectors both young and old.
Ian Rank-Broadley’s effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II was selected to feature on the obverse.
