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

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.

This coin is part of a four-coin collector mini series featuring dinosaurs the remains of which have been found in Australia, and shows the Kunbarrasaurus.

Skeletons of the Kunbarrasaurus ieversi, which was covered in bony armour, have been found in Queensland.

Providing continuity in the series, each coin has a design displaying one dinosaur and part or parts of other dinosaurs from the series, which is part of a whole picture as illustrated on the cover of the four-coin dinosaur set.

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The Queen also wears the Coronation Necklace; originally made for Queen Victoria in 1858, it was also worn at the coronations (as Queen's Consort) of Queen Alexandra in 1902, Queen Mary in 1911 and Queen Elizabeth (the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