Details

When it was decided that the Australian $1 note, having been in circulation since 1966, was no longer cost effective to produce, an alternative was sought out. Change was needed – quite literally! First issued on 14 May 1984, the $1 coin was introduced to replace the readily - damaged $1 note due to its greater durability and lower cost of production. Art teacher - turned - coin designer, Stuart Devlin – the man behind Australia’s other circulating coin designs – was again chosen to submit a piece of unique Australian artwork.The result was an astounding, now iconic, image. Fittingly, the strength and resilience captured in Devlin’s five bounding kangaroos design embodied the key properties of the new coin itself.

To celebrate the 30 th anniversary of the issue of the first Australian $1 coin, the Royal Australian Mint has produced this bold , beautiful collector’s coin using the most up - to - date , world - class technology. Struck in pure silver and expertly engineered in high relief to accentuate the d esign’s absolu te beauty, this coin is assured to be a prize addition to coin collections across the globe.
