2019 Australian One Dollar Coin - 6th Portrait - Fine Silver Proof.

Highly collectable, and of a limited mintage, with a maximum mintage of 5,000 for the silver proof release.

The first intentional "Double Header" to my knowledge. 

The tradition of placing effigies of the reigning monarch on the obverse of coins dates back centuries.

Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II became the longest reigning British monarch in 2015. Since her 1953 coronation, there have been six different effigies of the Queen on Australian coins. The previous effigies were designed by Mary Gillick (1953), Arnold Machin (1966), Raphael Maklouf (1985), Ian Rank-Broadley (1998) and Vladimir Gottwald (2000). The sixth and most recent effigy, is based on a drawing by UK designer Jody Clark.

The Clark effigy depicts Her Majesty facing to the right as per tradition. She is shown wearing the Royal Diamond Diadem, which she wore for her coronation. This coin, proudly produced by the Royal Australian Mint, marks the progression of the Queen’s effigy on Australian coins.

Coin Highlights:

  • The first in a suite produced by the Royal Australian Mint to mark the progression of effigies of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II on Australian coins.
  • Coin’s obverse features the new effigy of Her Majesty designed by Jody Clark.
  • Coin’s reverse features the Queen’s effigy sculpted by Ian Rank-Broadley
  • Australian legal tender.
