1992 Australian $1 Coin - Barcelona Olympics - Sydney Royal Easter Show Release
This is the Aluminium-bronze coin issued as a NCLT coin by the RAM to commemorate the Summer Olympic Games (the XXVth Olympiad) which were held in Barcelona, Spain in 1992.
This coin was not released into circulation (known as an NCLT issue). It was a standard size 25mm aluminium bronze dollar weighing 9 grams with edge interrupted reeding. The reverse depicts a Javelin thrower sculpted by Margaret Priest with "XXV OLYMPIAD BARCELONA 1 DOLLAR", the legend. The obverse is the Raphael Maklouf effigy of Queen Elizabeth II.
This coin was issued without a mintmark but was available in a number varying packages. It was available at the Mint your Own Gallery Press at the RAM for $2 when you visited Canberra. This was issued in a wallet depicting the RAM building. These were then replaced by wallets with a picture depicting the Olympic rings. The illustrated wallets were also issued at the Sydney Royal Easter Show with a competition entry coupon included.
