One Dollar 2022 Australian Dinosaurs, Coin from Australia
CoinOne Dollar 2022 Australian Dinosaurs

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.

The Mint says about this coin:
Australian dinosaur discovery dates back to the first fossil found in Victoria in 1903. Since then, dinosaur fossils have been found all over Australia, including Queensland, New South Wales and Western Australia. The Royal Australian Mint celebrates Australia’s ‘terrible lizards’ with this 2022 $1 ‘C’ Mintmark coin. Featuring Australia’s most complete predatory dinosaur specimen, the Australovenator wintonensis on the precious metal silver coin, and the Timimus hermani, a species of theropod, on the packaging, this release showcases Australia’s impressive prehistoric creatures.

Obverse
Australia / One Dollar 2022 Australian Dinosaurs - 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The Queen also wears the Coronation Necklace; originally made for Queen Victoria in 1858, it was also worn at the coronations (as Queen's Consort) of Queen Alexandra in 1902, Queen Mary in 1911 and Queen Elizabeth (the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 in tiny letters below left.

Around the effigy is the monarch's legend and the date: ELIZABETH II · AUSTRALIA 2022.

The designer's initials AWB (for Adam William Ball) are on the left.

Around above, the inscription AUSTRALOVENATOR. Around below, DINOSAURS DOWNUNDER. Above that, a small letter C (from Canberra) represents a mint mark of the Royal Australian Mint which it uses on collector issues only.
