One Dollar 2022 Commonwealth Games - Integrity, Coin from Australia
CoinOne Dollar 2022 Commonwealth Games - Integrity

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 of a seven-coin series by the Royal Australian Mint marking the participation of Australia in the Commonwealth Games held in Birmingham (United Kingdom) from 28 July to 8 August 2022.

The Mint says about it:
"Celebrate everything Australia loves about sport with this vibrant collection of coins honouring the 2022 Australian Commonwealth Games Team. Representing Australia in 21 exhilarating sports including 8 Para-sorts, across 24 disciplines, the team comprises some 400 of the nation’s most talented and determined athletes. As a country that lives and breathes sport, it’s no wonder that Australia is one of only six countries to have competed in every Commonwealth Games since their inception in 1930. Capture the spirit of the green and gold with this exquisite seven-coin collection."

The four one-dollar coins in the series represent various qualities important to the games: integrity, respect, excellence and inclusiveness. The mint doesn't credit a specific person for the design, but lists "Royal Australian Mint" as reverse designer.

No coins of this type were released into circulation.

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The Queen also wears the Coronation Necklace; originally made for Queen Victoria in 1858, it was also worn at the coronations (as Queen's Consort) of Queen Alexandra in 1902, Queen Mary in 1911 and Queen Elizabeth (the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