Congratulations Australia on your Cricket World Cup 2015 win! The Royal Australian Mint has teamed with the International Cricket Council (ICC) to present this stunning dome-shaped silver proof coin.
Since 1975, the ICC Cricket World Cup (CWC) has been the ultimate competition in One Day International Cricket. Every four years, cricket enthusiasts around the world watch the spectacular showdown as nations compete for cricketing glory.
As a cricket-loving nation, Australia’s association with the CWC is a long and proud one. Australia was the overall winner in 1987, 1999, 2003 and 2007 and the runner-up in 1975 and 1996.
Australia and New Zealand previously joined forces to host the CWC in 1992.
These two nations will again have this honour in 2015, showcasing the best that cricket has to offer. There will be no shortage of passion, sportsmanship, determination, hope and national pride. The proud spectators at each match will demonstrate that these feelings run wild off the field as well as on it.
The coin’s reverse creatively utilises the dome-shape to resemble a cricket ball while the obverse follows the inward curve to give an artistic representation of the world famous Melbourne Cricket Ground.
The Royal Australian Mint will release no more than 5,000 of the 2015 ICC Cricket World Cup Domed Silver Proof Coin.
