One Dollar 2020 Qantas, Coin from Australia
CoinOne Dollar 2020 Qantas

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 the definitive design, the Royal Australian Mint issues a large variety of circulating commemorative one dollar coins such as this one.

This circulating commemorative coin celebrates the Centenary (100th anniversary) of Qantas.

Qantas Airways Limited is the flag carrier of Australia, and is the third-oldest airline in the world after KLM and Avianca. The company was founded in November 1920; it began international passenger flights in May 1935. The Qantas name comes from "QANTAS", an acronym for its original name, Queensland and Northern Territory Aerial Services, as it originally served Queensland and the Northern Territory only. It is nicknamed "The Flying Kangaroo".

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

Obverse
Australia / One Dollar 2020 Qantas - 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The Queen also wears the Coronation Necklace; originally made for Queen Victoria in 1858, it was also worn at the coronations (as Queen's Consort) of Queen Alexandra in 1902, Queen Mary in 1911 and Queen Elizabeth (the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 is "uncouped" (includes the Queen's shoulders) and extends almost to the rim of the coin; consequently, the legend does not run continuously around the rim.

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.

Obverse Inscription ELIZABETH II · AUSTRALIA 2020
