Stuart Devlin’s designs of native Australian animals for Australia’s decimal coins in 1966 have stood the test of time. Today, his Australian fauna designs remain the benchmark for coin designers all over the world seeking to feature native fauna in their designs.
High relief and proof finish combine in this 2 cent silver coin to elevate Stuart Devlin’s Frilled-necked lizard design to a spectacular level.
This is the second coin in the Royal Australian Mint’s World Money Fair (WMF) special series, Decimal Designs in Perspective.
The 1,500-coin mintage is sure to be devastated by demand.
