2020 Qantas Centenary 100 Years $1 One Dollar Coin

The coin design includes parallel lines in the plane's wake to signify movement and progression in the airlines 100 year history. This Dreamliner aircraft with the QANTAS badge flew the first non-stop flight between Perth and London in 2018 and QANTAS was the first to complete the longest commercial flight between New York and Sydney in 2019.

2016 50c - 50th Anniversary of Decimal Currency Coin


Australia mad the change to decimal currency on 14 February 1966. Before this this, Australian currency was the old pounds, shillings and pence. The changeover was transformative as, for the first time, Australia’s coin designs were of Australian origins. Stuart Devlin’s winning designs of unique Australian fauna have stood the test of time and are as much loved by Australians today as they were 50 years ago. Devlin’s beautiful, intricate Australian Coat of Arms design has been chosen by the Royal Australian Mint as a worthy flag bearer for Australia’s celebrations of this anniversary.
Combining the shape of the original 1966 50c circulating coin, while featuring the edge profile and metal composition of the current 50c dodecagon coin
