CoinOne Dollar 2022 Australian Overland Telegraph Line, RAM

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 is part marks the 150th anniversary of Australian Overland Telegraph Line.

The Mint says about it:
"Life in Australia changed forever when Charles Heavitree Todd’s Overland Telegraph Line opened. An extraordinary engineering feat, the line stretched 2,839 km from Port Augusta to Darwin through the dry Australian outback, on 36,000 poles. This 2022 $1 Uncirculated Coin commemorates the 1872 opening of the line and Australia’s historic telegraphic connection with the rest of the world."

No coins of this type were released into circulation.

Obverse
Australia / One Dollar 2022 Australian Overland Telegraph Line, RAM - 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The Queen also wears the Coronation Necklace; originally made for Queen Victoria in 1858, it was also worn at the coronations (as Queen's Consort) of Queen Alexandra in 1902, Queen Mary in 1911 and Queen Elizabeth (the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). In small letters on the left, the artist's initials JC (for Jody Clark).

Running continuously around the rim is the monarch's legend, the date of issue and the face value: ELIZABETH II · AUSTRALIA 2022 · 1 DOLLAR ·.
