In 1902, women were granted the right to vote in Australia in Federal Elections. The Centenary of Women's Suffrage 2003 $1 coin honours this landmark decision a century later.This coin is hard to find in change in any grade. It's impossible to find 'in your loose change' in the strictly Uncirculated condition.The reverse is by Vladimir Gottwald.Country of Issue AustraliaYear of Issue 2003Denomination $1Issued By Royal Australian Mint
Coin Twenty Cents 2005 60th Anniversary of the End of WW2
The inscription reads WORLD WAR 1939 - 1945 COMING HOME.This is a circulating commemorative twenty cent coin commemorating the 60th anniversary of the end of World War II. The reverse was designed and sculpted by Vladimir Gottwald.The design was modeled on a photograph from the Australian War Memorial and after a nationwide search it was found that the young girl in the design is Jaquie Dowling and her mother Lorna greeting Private William Leslie Darcy, an ex Prisoner of War on his return home in 1945.War memorial historian Dr Peter Stanley worked closely with Royal Australian Mint engraver Vladimir Gottwald to bring this image to a circulating 20 cent coin. The reverse of the coin features Gottwald's stylised G signature below the 20 [cents] value.Country of Issue AustraliaYear of Issue 2005Denomination 20centIssued By Royal Australian Mint

Very nice to make your acquaintance Linda, I have a great interest in Canadian coins but my Australian collection is wonting. I have a Kookaburra, a couple of mint sets, and a a few misc coins including some my Father brought back from Australia while on leave during WW II. Please continue to feature Australia, I find it very interesting.

ive actually worked out where you get the most from in your change. its through the drive through bottle shop. bit sad but it seems to be where they all get handed in. if coins could talk im sure they would have great stories too

Linda, I forgot to mention. Make sure you get a good mentor for you diploma program. I had Bill Fivaz. It doesn't get any better than that. He went to bat for me when I was marked wrong on a question. All I did was present my arguments to him and he fought for me. Successfully.

ahh interesting. a few of the questions asked i felt i had correct and i started a whole written reasoning to my answers then i just decided to accept my grade not wanting to be a ballbreaker or an ignorant aussie. but maybe i should request a review. ive only got the mint state coins course part to go but because of covid the usps stopped mail to australia in september and i think it only just resumed. i had actually completed 5 course units before i even recieved my first mark. i still only have my grades on digital copy because Mr Gillis was able to scan and email them to me. australia offers no similar courses to the one by the ANA. thanks mate. also how do i change my username. cant find the option to edit it anywhere

Great blog Linda! The pictures are very nice also. Welcome to the ANA blog! I don’t own any coins from Australia but the designs are very well done. I look forward to seeing more of your collection!

Commeratives circulate in Australian coinage? I suppose that is like the US Bicentenial coins, which interestingly I never see in circulation any longer. You're taking the diploma program and remaining in Australia? It must be on line then? Obviously you're not finding Ossie coins in Colorado Springs. Mazal Tov!
