CoinOne Dollar 2001 International Year of Volunteers

This circulating commemorative one dollar coin marks the International Year of Volunteers and incorporates the United Nations logo for that year. It was designed and sculpted by Wojciech Pietranik and has now been in circulation for 18 years.

No regular (Mob of Roos) one dollar coins were released in 2001 (although Krause mistakenly lists such a coin with mintage of 1,001,000).

Obverse

Crowned mature head of Queen Elizabeth II facing right (effigy known as the "Fourth Portrait"). The Queen wears the "Girls of Great Britain and Ireland" diamond tiara, a wedding gift from Queen Mary (Her Majesty's grandmother) in 1947 - which she also has on the Machin and the Gottwald portraits.

In tiny letters below the head, the artist's initials IRB (for Ian Rank-Broadley).

Around the effigy is the monarch's legend and the date: ELIZABETH II AUSTRALIA 2001.

Notes

1.001 mln circulation one dollar pieces dated 2001 were minted in the 2000/2001 financial year (ending 30 June). Since no "Mob or Roos" coins were minted this year, presumably this type is meant.
