Australian Legal Tender $1 Coin
Struck by The Perth Mint from aluminium bronze, the coin is issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965, depicting the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the 2012 year-date on the coin’s obverse.
A great gift for any budding young collector, the coin is housed in an illustrated and informative presentation card.
The fastest fish in the sea, known for its incredible jumps, Sailfish live in the warmer sections of the world’s oceans. This magnificent, streamlined creature can appear in a startling array of colours, from subdued browns and greys, to vibrant purples or silvers. The Sailfish can change its colours almost instantly; a transformation controlled by its nervous system.
