In 1996 the RAM released an aluminium bronze dollar coin into circulation that commemorated the 100th anniversary of the death of Sir Henry Parkes.

Known as the "Father of Federation" he did not support the concept strongly until the last few years of his political life. The general consensus of his support is that it was one of convenience, but despite this he is known for a strong speech at Tenterfield urging Federation of the colonies of Australia.

His reasons for doing so were mixed at best, and he is recorded as saying that federation would be a great idea so that trouble makers in Broken Hill would become South Australia's problem and not those of NSW! (Despite Broken Hill actually being just inside NSW!)

The details of each coin is as follows:

1996 "A" mintmark, Mintage: 29,127 (Adelaide Mintmark Royal Adelaide Show)

1996 "B" mintmark, Mintage: 41,128 (Brisbane Mintmark (Royal Brisbane Show)

The NCLT coins have been housed in the original release cards since 1997, and as such have toned (a fairly common occurrence unfortunately).

Toning aside, these are still wonderful uncirculated coins, and essential for a complete one dollar coin collection.

Original coin cards are included.

Catalogue Values and mintages are taken from Renniks Coin and Banknote Values 30th Edition, page 92.
