Australia’s unique fauna first graced our coins when Stuart Devlin’s wildlife designs were chosen for the introduction of decimal currency in 1963. Devlin’s composition of kangaroos later adorned the $1 coin in 1984, and Horst Hahne’s indigenous elder became the reverse of the $2 coin introduced in 1988. Most Australians hold these coins without considering that they are works of art and pieces of history.
Each coin represents a moment in Australia’s numismatic record, captured in precious metal for future generations to treasure.
Each coin is housed in a navy presentation case with clear lid, perfect for display. Further to this the coin is packaged into a navy gift box featuring the Royal Australian Mint crest logo, and with accompanying Certificate of Authenticity.
