Details

The Merino ram’s head design featured on 2011 $1 uncirculated ‘C’ mintmark and the privy mark coins of Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne is the same design that graced the Australian shilling from 1938 until 1963. The original design was modeled on a grand champion Merino from the annual Sydney Sheep show in 1932. This ram was considered to be unmatched in the position of its head and horns. Named Uardry 0.1 after its home station, it became known as the ‘Shilling Ram’ and represented Australia’s growing wool industry. The dignified Merino ram represents Australia’s reliance on primary industry through its economic history.   

This coin with the “M” Counterstamp was made on the Mints mobile press at the ANDA Show on the 3rd and 4th July 2011
