The four Grand Slam tournaments; Australian Open, French Open, Wimbledon and US Open, represent the zenith of world tennis competition. Wimbledon was the first of these tournaments and commenced in 1877, with the Australian Open, originally the Australasian Championships, starting in 1905. Since then, the Australian Open has been contested each year except during the two world wars and in 1986, when the tournament shifted from mid-December to mid-January. The winner of the 2012 Australian Open Men’s Singles Final will be the tournament’s 100th Australian Open Men’s Champion. This coin is a representation of the medal that will be presented to the 100th Australian Open Men’s Champion. The obverse accurately depicts the swirl of a tennis ball. The $5 uncirculated coin will be held in a clear plastic blister in a postcard sized card.
