One Dollar 2018 Armistice, Coin from Australia
CoinOne Dollar 2018 Armistice

The one dollar coin circulating denomination (written as $1) was introduced in Australia in 1984, replacing the earlier banknotes. The original reverse design by Stuart Devlin featuring five kangaroos - known in Australia as the "Mob of Roos" design - has not been changed since its introduction.

The denomination is also used by both the Royal Australian Mint and the Perth Mint to issue an extensive range of collector coins, which are legal tender in Australia - such as this one.

This coin was issued to mark the Armistice Centenary - the 100th anniversary of the armistice which preceded the end of World War I.

The Mint says about it:
"At 11am on 11 November 1918 the guns on the Western Front fell silent as an Armistice came into effect, bringing an end to the First World War.

Between August and October 1918, Australian troops took part in a major Allied offensive on the Western Front. By the first week of November, the seriously depleted German forces had agreed to an Armistice. On 11 November 1918, German delegates signed the Armistice with the Allied nations at a railway siding in a forest in France, near the town of Compiègne. The First World War was officially over.

As the news reached Australia, cities and towns erupted into celebration. For Australian troops in France, surrounded by the devastation of war, it was a bittersweet moment. Many described a feeling of numbness, with the news taking several days to sink in. On the first anniversary of the Armistice, King George V requested that all people of the British Empire suspend their normal activities and observe a period of silence in memory of the fallen. Since then, Remembrance Day is still observed around the world with a minute silence in memory of all casualties of war."

No coins of this design were issued into circulation. They were distributed in collector formats only.

Obverse
Australia / One Dollar 2018 Armistice - obverse photo

The obverse shows the crowned mature head of Queen Elizabeth II facing right (her 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 small 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 2018.

Around below, the face value ONE DOLLAR.

In small letters on the left and on the right, the metal content: 1 oz .999 Ag (one troy ounce of 99.9% silver). The designer's initials AS (for Aleksandra Stokic) are on the right, opposite the 8 in 2018.
