One Dollar 2023 Kangaroo Toys, Coin from Australia - detailed information

One Dollar 2023 Kangaroo Toys, Coin from Australia
CoinOne Dollar 2023 Kangaroo Toys

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 design was issued in the baby mint sets of the year only; three of the coins in the set are re-imagined versions of the "definitive" types and are designed as baby toys. The $1 coin shows a mob of plush kangaroo toys in place of the realistic kangaroos of the definitive design.

These coins are Non-Circulating Legal Tender (collector issue). No coins of this type have been released into circulation.

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The Queen also wears the Coronation Necklace; originally made for Queen Victoria in 1858, it was also worn at the coronations (as Queen's Consort) of Queen Alexandra in 1902, Queen Mary in 1911 and Queen Elizabeth (the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

The reverse of the coin is a re-design of Stuart Devlin's realistic mob of kangaroos on the definitive one-dollar piece and shows four plush kangaroo toys in an arrangement reminiscent of the definitive design (note that there are four kangaroos and not five).

Superimposed on the lower half of the design, the value and denomination: 1 DOLLAR.

Notes

The obverse has the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II, even though the coins were issued during the reign of King Charles III.
