In 2019, the Royal Australian Mint's Colonial Australia theme continues with the Bold, the Bad and the Ugly bushrangers.
This exceptional four-coin $1 set includes the C, S, B and M Privy Marks. Each stunning coin depicts a scene of the classic Australian bushranger and the brave colonial trooper, reflecting the drama and action of the time.
As Australia's colonies developed, bushrangers roamed the roads and townships: the scourge of police and troopers who struggled to uphold the law in the expanding settlements. The bushrangers came from a range of backgrounds: some were anti-establishment heroes to the common people, some were forced into a life of crime; many were violent career criminals.
Although bushrangers were feared, they also sparked a legacy of art and folklore, and helped to create the myth of the Australian 'larrikin'.
