Product Information

 

This beautiful Celebrate Australia release is one of five 2011 $1 coins portraying stunning Australian landscapes and marine environments inscribed on the World Heritage List.

The Gondwana Rainforests contain the most extensive area of subtropical rainforest in the world, large areas of warm temperate rainforest, and nearly all of the world’s Antarctic Beech cool temperate rainforest.

This World Heritage Area includes 42 separate reserves from southeast Queensland along the Great Escarpment into New South Wales, providing habitat for many rare and threatened plants, animals and ancient life forms.

Reverse Design

The coin’s coloured reverse represents the Gondwana Rainforest’s beautiful trees and native ferns.  The design also includes the Albert’s lyrebird, a large long-tailed songbird famed for its rich plumage.

‘P’ Mintmark

The coin’s reverse also incorporates The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark.

Australian Legal Tender

Issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965, the coin bears the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II on the obverse.

Eye-Catching Presentation Card

The coin is housed on an eye-catching presentation card, which has a fold-out stand for upright display.

Five fantastic World Heritage Sites are the inspiration behind the designs of this year’s Celebrate Australia coins.

The brilliant new designs symbolise the Wet Tropics of Queensland, Macquarie Island, the Gondwana Rainforests, the Australian Fossil Mammal Sites and Purnululu World Heritage National Park. The designs also feature a native Australian animal that is particular to each World Heritage Site.
