The icons featured in this coin design are as true blue and fair dinkum as Australia itself.
The Royal Australian Mint has collaborated with Australian Geographic to produce awardwinning illustrator Jim Tsinganos’ 100 Aussie Icons design on a treasured coin.
From the 100 distinct and individual icons that were artfully incorporated into Tsinganos’ design, the Mint has captured a select few to feature on this meticulously designed coin.
The 2015 $5 Coloured Frosted Uncirculated Coin- Distinctly Australian shines with national pride. It is an icon of ‘home.’
Everything about Australia is rich with variety; its landscape, wildlife, cities, towns and people. While much that defines Australia is elusive; its geography, fauna and flora, social and political institutions have come to symbolise its national identity and evolve with it.
This fabulous coin design brings together familiar Australian icons that everyone will cherish, regardless of who they are or where they live.
The coin captures the essence and spirit of Australia through its meticulously crafted and beautifully presented design, featuring some of Australia’s beloved icons including ‘Banjo’ Paterson, Sir Douglas Mawson, Ned Kelly, Sir Charles Kingsford Smith, Nancy Bird-Walton, a gold miner and Arnott’s Biscuits.
