One Dollar 2022 Royal Agricultural Societies, Coin from Australia
CoinOne Dollar 2022 Royal Agricultural Societies

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:
Each year, almost 600 agricultural shows are held in towns large and small across Australia. Farmers proudly display their produce and the community comes together to be entertained.

Marking the bicentenary of Australia’s first agricultural show and the foundation of Royal Agricultural Societies in 1822, the Royal Australian Mint is releasing this 2022 $1 Coloured Uncirculated Coin; featuring a design recognising the contribution of Australia’s eight state and territory Royal Agricultural Societies over the past 200 years.

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The Queen also wears the Coronation Necklace; originally made for Queen Victoria in 1858, it was also worn at the coronations (as Queen's Consort) of Queen Alexandra in 1902, Queen Mary in 1911 and Queen Elizabeth (the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