CoinTwenty Cents 2011 Ashes (NCLT)

The Australian 20 cent coin was first introduced with decimalisation on 14 February 1966 when it replaced the pre-decimal Australian florin, to which it is equal in size and mass. The original reverse design by Stuart Devlin has not been changed since its introduction.

The denomination is occasionally used by both the Royal Australian Mint and the Perth Mint to issue collector coins, which are legal tender in Australia - such as this one.

This commemorative 20 cents coin was released on 6th November 2010 and commemorates the 2010/11 The Ashes test series cricket played in Brisbane, Australia 25-29 November 2010 - which is an integral part of the Australian summer cricket calendar. The coin is immediately recognisable by its simple yet effective design depicting a cricket ball, with the obverse showing the Queen's effigy in miniature.

The coin was issued in a presentation card (Royal Australian Mint Product Code: 310013, issue price: A$6.95) and in a PNC. No coins of this type were issued into circulation.

Obverse
Australia / Twenty Cents 2011 Ashes (NCLT) - obverse photo

Crowned mature head of Queen Elizabeth II facing right (effigy known as the "Fourth Portrait"). The Queen wears the "Girls of Great Britain and Ireland" diamond tiara, a wedding gift from Queen Mary (Her Majesty's grandmother) in 1947 - which she also has on the Machin and the Gottwald portraits.

In tiny letters below the head, the artist's initials IRB (for Ian Rank-Broadley).

Around the effigy is the monarch's legend and the date: ELIZABETH II AUSTRALIA 2011.

This standard design is in miniature and looks as if it were the branding on a cricket ball. Around below, small lines in six concentric curves look like the stitches on the ball.

Obverse Inscription ELIZABETH II AUSTRALIA 2011
Reverse

Like the obverse, the reverse also symbolises a cricket ball, with small lines in six concentric curves around above looking like the stitches on the ball.

In a small circle below, the value and denomination TWENTY CENTS above, and the text THE ASHES around below, surround a logo depicting a lion and a kangaroo holding a trophy cup, above two cricket bats.
