The Perth Mint is pleased to release the latest design in the 2014 Land Down Under series.

Isolated locations, slippery and uneven surfaces, and the unpredictable nature of the ocean, make rock fishing the most dangerous sport in Australia.  Yet despite many reports which detail fishermen being swept to their untimely demise, the exhilaration of the pastime makes it an extremely popular activity across Australia and New Zealand.
