One Dollar 2023 Good Luck, Coin from Australia
CoinOne Dollar 2023 Good Luck

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 non-circulating $1 coin was issued as part of the Lunar Series of coins to mark the 2023 Chinese Year of the Rabbit (22 January 2023 to 9 February 2023).

Obverse
Australia / One Dollar 2023 Good Luck - 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The Queen also wears the Coronation Necklace; originally made for Queen Victoria in 1858, it was also worn at the coronations (as Queen's Consort) of Queen Alexandra in 1902, Queen Mary in 1911 and Queen Elizabeth (the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 shows at its centre the Chinese character for good luck, (pronounced fŭ under the Pinyin system), surrounded by Chinese-inspired decorations within a circle.

Around the rim outside that circle, a "Lunar Calendar Wheel": the twelve animals of the Lunar Calendar walking counter-clockwise: pig, dog, rooster, monkey, goat, horse, snake, dragon, rabbit, tiger, ox and rat; the rabbit is on top.

The designer's initials BS (for Bronwyn Scott) are in the rim below the right.

The face value and the date of issue are on the obverse.
