Coin: One Dollar 1993 Landcare

The environmental theme of this $1 coin design reflects the relationship between the environment and water quality by depicting a tree sculpted in the flowing form of water. The design incorporates the logo of Landcare Australia to raise awareness of their work.

Designed and sculpted by Vladimir Gottwald.

In 1993, the Royal Australian Mint introduced for the first time the practice of minting coins for visitors of various coin shows where people could "mint" their own coins, with a privy mark denoting the city where the show takes place.

No regular (Mob of Roos) one dollar coins were released in 1988.
