CoinOne Dollar 2019 (Gottwald Portrait)

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 in a mint set marking the introduction of the Queen's Fifth Effigy in Australia, called Effigies Over Time. The set - with a mintage of 20, 000 - featured $2 with the Jody Clark portrait, $1 with the Gottwald portrait, 50 cents with the Ian Rank-Broadley portrait, 20 cents with the Maklouf portrait, 10 cents with the Machin portrait and 5 cents the with Mary Gillick portrait.

These coins are Non-Circulating Legal Tender (collector issue). No coins of this type have been released into circulation.
