One Dollar 2019 Moon Landing, Coin from Australia
CoinOne Dollar 2019 Moon Landing

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 the 2019 Royal Australian Mint six-coin annual mints sets (uncirculated and proof). The theme of the sets is the 50th Anniversary of the Moon Landing by the Apollo 11 mission. The sets feature two one-year type Non-Circulating Legal Tender (NCLT) coins: a five cent coin showing the lunar landing site on the Sea of Tranquility, and this one dollar coin showing the Honeysuckle Creek Tracking Station in Australia, which broadcast the historic moonwalk to the entire world.

No coins of this type were issued into circulation.

On the upper right side of the coin, there is a representation of the Honeysuckle Creek tracking station above two curved parallel lines extending across the coin horizontally. In the lower sector there is a representation of a workstation with buttons and a screen displaying an astronaut and a landing module on the surface of the moon; two men are seated next to that workstation, one of them wearing a headphone and writing in an open book.

Around above left, the value and denomination ONE DOLLAR. Across the middle of the coin, between the two curved lines, 50TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE MOON LANDING.

The designer's signature AWB (for Adam Ball) is in the right field.
