2021 150th Anniversary Of The RSPCA Australia - Layer Hen $1 Unc Coin

The Royal Australian Mint has partnered with the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA) to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the organisation's work in Australia.

Founded in London in 1824 and then in Australia in 1871, the organisation works to protect all animals from cruelty.

Product Code

An independent charity, the organisation relies on community support to run animal rehoming shelters, investigate complaints of animal cruelty and educate the community about responsible pet ownership and animal welfare. The RSPCA promotes the welfare of all animals. In fact, its moniker is "for all creatures, great and small".

A chestnut-coloured layer hen proudly displays her four eggs on this cheery coin celebrating the 150th anniversary of the RSPCA in Australia. The humble layer hen is responsible for the excitement of little (and big!) kids around Australia who rush to see how many eggs have been laid, awaiting collection.

  • Celebrates the 150th anniversary of the RSPCA in Australia
  • Colourful design features a chestnut-coloured layer hen proudly displaying her four eggs
