Debuting for Australia in 1952, Richie Benaud OBE would become one of Australia’s great all-rounders. Leading fellow players as captain from 1958 this consistent leg spin bowler and explosive batsman guided the Australian team to the top of the sport until 1964.

Now immortalised on this legal tender coin, Benaud’s legacy will endure for centuries to come.

The early 1950s saw the Australian national cricket team struggle to maintain the heights of the Bradman era. Richie Benaud rallied the players in the second half of the decade with the team again holding position at the sport’s top spot.

Before retiring from cricket in 1964 Benaud had already taken steps towards continuing his contributions to the sport, through journalism training with the BBC in the UK and writing his first book. For almost five decades after retirement from the sport, Benaud brought the game to life with his live commentary. He authored several more books on the game and was inducted into sporting halls of fame both at home and abroad.

As an Australian inspiration Benaud was revered for his passion and commitment to cricket, his life now proudly commemorated on this uncirculated coin.
