FIVE-COIN COLLECTION WITH BONUS MINI ALBUM ALSO AVAILABLE HERE.
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 ancient Macquarie Island provides evidence of the rock types that demonstrate the geological processes that have dominated the Earth's surface for many millions of years. The island is a major site of geoconservation and scientific research, and is home to a diverse variety of wildlife.
The coin’s coloured reverse represents Macquarie Island’s rugged shoreline. The design also includes the fur seal, one of several species of marine life that breed on the island.
The coin’s reverse also incorporates The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark.
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.
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.
