One Dollar 2020, Coin from Australia - detailed information

One Dollar 2020, Coin from Australia
CoinOne Dollar 2020

The one dollar coin 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.

Apart from this regular design, the Royal Australian Mint issues a large variety of circulating commemorative one dollar coins.

Coins issued in 2020 have now been in circulation for only one year.

Obverse
Australia / One Dollar 2020 - obverse photo

The obverse of the coin depicts the crowned old bust of Queen Elizabeth II facing right, wearing the Royal Diamond Diadem crown worn for her Coronation (effigy known as the "Fifth Portrait" worldwide but "Sixth Portrait" in Australia, where the Queen's portrait by Vladimir Gottwald was fifth).

The Queen also wears the Coronation Necklace; originally made for Queen Victoria in 1858, it was also worn at the coronations (as Queen's Consort) of Queen Alexandra in 1902, Queen Mary in 1911 and Queen Elizabeth (the Queen mother) in 1937.

Unlike on British coinage, the effigy includes the Queen's shoulders. On regular circulating coins it extends almost to the rim of the coin. Consequently, on them the legend does not run continuously around the rim. On commemorative coins the effigy is smaller and the value and denomination are below.

The artist's initials JC (for Jody Clark) are incuse in tiny letters in the left field of the effigy (on the Queen's right shoulder, near the rim).

Around the effigy is the monarch's legend and the date: ELIZABETH II · AUSTRALIA 2020.

Notes

Coins dated 2020 were minted and released in October 2019 in Royal Australian Mint sets. Note that these mint sets refer to Jody Clark's portrait of the Queen as her "6th Effigy", which takes into account her effigy by Vladimir Gottwald issued (in Australia only) in 2000.
