One Dollar 2023 Australian Citizenship, Coin from Australia
CoinOne Dollar 2023 Australian Citizenship

The one dollar coin denomination (written as $1) was introduced in Australia in 1984, replacing the earlier banknotes. The original reverse design by Stuart Devlin on circulating coins has not been changed since its introduction. The denomination is also often used to issue circulating commemorative coins with various reverses.

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 but are not intended for circulation - such as this one. The coin is larger than the normal $1 coins.

This coin is part of the Perth Mint Australian Citizenship series which is issued every year.

The Mint says about it:
"A meaningful keepsake for existing and new citizens, this legal tender coin in aptly themed packaging is an expression of pride and happiness for all those fortunate enough to call Australia home. Citizenship symbolises our commitment to Australia and its people, the values we share and our common future."

Obverse
Australia / One Dollar 2023 Australian Citizenship - 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The Queen also wears the Coronation Necklace; originally made for Queen Victoria in 1858, it was also worn at the coronations (as Queen's Consort) of Queen Alexandra in 1902, Queen Mary in 1911 and Queen Elizabeth (the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 2023 · 1 DOLLAR ·.

The reverse of the coin features the Coat of Arms of the Commonwealth of Australia, as granted by King George V by Royal Warrant on 19 September 1912. It is composed of a shield divided into six parts, each containing a representation of the badge of a State:
- New South Wales - the Cross of St George with lion and stars
- Victoria - the Southern Cross
- Queensland - a Maltese Cross and Crown
- South Australia - the Australian piping shrike bird
- Western Australia - a black swan
- Tasmania - a walking lion

The shield is supported by a kangaroo and an emu standing on a grassy mound accompanied by small branches of golden wattle. A seven-point gold Commonwealth Star sits above the shield. Six of the star’s points represent the Australian states and the seventh point represents the territories.

The P mint mark of the Perth Mint is to the right. In the background, floral decoration and a ribbon below the shield inscribed AUSTRALIA.

Around above and around below, the inscription reads AUSTRALIAN CITIZENSHIP.
