One Dollar 2021 Donation Dollar, Coin from Australia - detailed information

One Dollar 2021 Donation Dollar, Coin from Australia
CoinOne Dollar 2021 Donation Dollar

The one dollar coin denomination (written as $1) was introduced in Australia in 1984, replacing the earlier banknotes. The original definitive type featuring five kangaroos has not been changed since its introduction and is still issued regularly.

Apart from the regular design, the Royal Australian Mint issues a large variety of circulating commemorative one dollar coins which have the same specifications and circulate in parallel with the definitive type - such as this one.

The Donation Dollar was intended to be donated, thus encouraging the promotion of charity in Australia; on its release, it was advertised as the first such coin in the world. It is also Australia's first coloured circulating coin in the one dollar denomination - all earlier circulating coloured coins were $2. Additionally, it is the first circulating $1 where the denomination is on the obverse; such designs were only used on collector coins before.

One dollar coins issued in 2021 have now been in circulation for only one year.

Obverse

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The Queen also wears the Coronation Necklace; originally made for Queen Victoria in 1858, it was also worn at the coronations (as Queen's Consort) of Queen Alexandra in 1902, Queen Mary in 1911 and Queen Elizabeth (the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

Around the effigy is the monarch's legend and the date: ELIZABETH II · AUSTRALIA 2021 · 1 DOLLAR ·.
