One Dollar 2022 CWA Centenary, Coin from Australia
CoinOne Dollar 2022 CWA Centenary

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 commemorates the 100th Anniversary (Centenary) of the Country Women’s Association (CWA) in Australia.

The Mint says about it:
A century ago, a group of women met in Sydney to launch a new organisation to represent the rural women of NSW – the Country Women’s Association. By 1936, there were CWA branches across the country and it’s now Australia’s largest non-government organisation for women, with 44,000 members. That 100 years of service and advocacy on behalf of country women and their families is commemorated in this exceptional 2022 $1 coin.

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The Queen also wears the Coronation Necklace; originally made for Queen Victoria in 1858, it was also worn at the coronations (as Queen's Consort) of Queen Alexandra in 1902, Queen Mary in 1911 and Queen Elizabeth (the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

Obverse Inscription ELIZABETH II · AUSTRALIA 2022
Reverse

The reverse of the coin shows at its centre the silhouette of a woman holding a child; below, radiating from it, eight woman-shaped shadows.

On the left, the face value $1 (one dollar). The designer's initials BS (for B Scott) are on the right below the horizon line.

Around above, the inscription CENTENARY OF THE COUNTRY WOMEN'S ASSOCIATION.

The background outside the central circle is decorated with a crochet pattern.
