A legend of Australian literature, Henry Lawson was a gifted balladist and short story writer with a talent for narrative, atmosphere, and humour.

Three of Lawson’s renowned literary pieces - The Drover’s Wife, The Loaded Dog and On the Edge of Plain are celebrated in this 50c aluminium bronze coin collection.

Though his best work would be valued by modern critics as comparable with that of the great short story writers, Henry Lawson’s early years were not encouraging. His education was brief and shadowed by partial deafness, which, in 1881 became an incurable hearing loss.
