CoinSilver Kilo 2020 Australian Olympic Team

The Australian one kilo silver piece (abbreviated as 1 kg and designated with Ag for "silver") is a bullion coin format. Uniquely, in Australia there are two mints authorised to strike legal tender: the Royal Australian Mint (which also makes the country's circulating coinage) and the Perth Mint which only makes collector and bullion coins, as well as other bullion products.

Both mints endeavour to create coins with attractive designs, and to introduce new designs and themes often, in order to raise the numismatic value of the coins over the value of previous metal used.

Representing the spirit of the Olympic Games, the Australian Olympic Team 1kg silver coin celebrates the individual experiences and achievements of each Australian Olympian. The design features four athletes in the water at the Olympic discipline swimming. It is one of the oldest Olympic sports and has always been represented since the beginning of the tradition of Olympic Games.

The Olympic Games of the XXXII Olympiad were scheduled for 2020 in Tokyo - the capital of Japan - but were postponed to 23rd of July - 8th of August 2021.

Obverse
Australia / Silver Kilo 2020 Australian Olympic Team - 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The Queen also wears the Coronation Necklace; originally made for Queen Victoria in 1858, it was also worn at the coronations (as Queen's Consort) of Queen Alexandra in 1902, Queen Mary in 1911 and Queen Elizabeth (the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 2020.

Obverse Inscription ELIZABETH II · AUSTRALIA 2020
Reverse
Australia / Silver Kilo 2020 Australian Olympic Team - reverse photo

The reverse design takes inspiration from the Japanese art of origami, with some the figures depicted looking like folded paper. It features four swimmers in a pool divided into swimming lanes, each followed by a Koi Carp fish symbolising the perseverance required in the tough journey to become an elite athlete. At the starting positions, five origami carp. The stylised half‑border below left is a geometric pattern also representing folded origami.

In the fifth lane, the official logo of the Australian Olympic Committee (a kangaroo and emu, between them the seven-pointed Federation Star of Australia, below them the five interlocked Olympic circles). Below that, a rectangular cartouche enclosing the Japanese language characters 東京 (in Kanji: Tokyo).

In another swimming lane to the right, on two lines the inscription AUSTRALIAN OLYMPIC TEAM, then in a further lane the face value THIRTY DOLLARS and the precious metal content, 1 kg .999 Ag (one kilogram of silver).

The designer's initials BK (for Bronwyn King) are in the origami pattern on the left.
