Australia: Coin One Dollar 1993 Landcare
CoinOne Dollar 1993 Landcare

The environmental theme of this circulating commemorative $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. It was designed and sculpted by Vladimir Gottwald and has now been in circulation for 26 years.

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.
