This commemorative $1 coin marks the Centenary of Australian coins. In 1910, nine years after Federation, the first Australian silver coins were issued. The threepence, sixpence, shilling and florin not only represented a new currency, but also signified the unity and independence of our young nation.
This coin was made available to the public using the Canberra Mint's 'strike your own' gallery press.
- 'C' - Canberra Mintmark - a small 'C' mintmark is located on the reverse to the left below the conjoined busts of the four monarchs, struck by the public using the Canberra Mint's 'strike your own' gallery press.
- 'C' - Canberra Counterstamp - a counterstamp was applied to pre-struck coins using a mobile coin press at the Royal Australian Mint stand at the ANDA show in Canberra on 6-7 November 2010.
The coin is housed in a special see-both-sides cardboard folder.
