2014 Vintage Travel Poster Kangaroo 1oz Silver Rectangle Coin

In the mid-to-late 1950s and throughout the 1960s, Australia was experiencing exponential growth in its tourism industry thanks in part to the Australian National Tourism Association (ANTA) commissioning world-class artists to design a series of promotional travel posters.

The travel posters of the post-war era were an integral part of Australia’s early 20th century tourism promotion, both internationally and domestically. Between the 1930s and the 1960s, ANTA, as well as State Government tourism organisations, airlines, railways, and other tourism operators, used travel posters as part of their strategy to sell Australia to the world.

English-born artist and designer, Dame Eileen Mayo, was one of the artists commissioned by the ANTA to produce the poster designs, one of which was the ‘Australia’ (Kangaroo) design first released in 1957.

Struck by The Perth Mint from 1oz of 99.9% pure silver in proof quality, the coin is issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965. No more than 5,000 of the 2014 Vintage Australia - Kangaroo 1oz Silver Rectangular Coin will be released by The Perth Mint.

The coin’s reverse features a coloured representation of Dame Eileen Mayo’s iconic ‘Australia’ (Kangaroo) poster headed by the inscription VINTAGE TRAVEL. The Perth Mint’s traditional ‘P’ mintmark, and the coin’s weight and fineness also appear in the design. The coin’s obverse depicts the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the monetary denomination, and the 2014 year-date.

This coin is housed in a stylish latex case that displays the coin’s reverse and obverse. It is presented in a themed shipper, and is accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
