Quick Overview

The icons featured in this coin design are as true blue and
fair dinkum as Australia itself. The Royal Australian Mint has
collaborated with Australian Geographic to produce award winning
illustrator Jim Tsinganos’ 100 Aussie Icons design on a
treasured coin. From the 100 distinct and individual icons that
were artfully incorporated into Tsinganos’ design, the Mint has
captured a select few to feature on this meticulously designed coin.

Details

The 2015 $5 Coloured Frosted Uncirculated CoinDistinctly Australian shines with national pride. It is an icon of ‘home.’

Everything about Australia is rich with variety; its landscape, wildlife, cities, towns and people. While much that defines Australia is elusive; its geography, fauna and flora, social and political institutions have come to symbolise its national identity and evolve with it. This fabulous coin design brings together familiar Australian icons that everyone will cherish, regardless of who they are or where they live.

The coin captures the essence and spirit of Australia through its meticulously crafted and beautifully presented design, featuring some of Australia’s beloved icons including ‘Banjo’ Paterson, Sir Douglas Mawson, Ned Kelly, Sir Charles Kingsford Smith, Nancy Bird-Walton, a gold miner and Arnott’s Biscuits.
