Twenty Cents 2022 ABC Anniversary, Coin from Australia
CoinTwenty Cents 2022 ABC Anniversary

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 coin marks the 90th Anniversary of the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) (named Australian Broadcasting Commission before 1983).

The mint says about it:
For nine decades, the ABC - Australia’s national broadcaster, has told the Australian story through a myriad of platforms and media. From its beginnings in radio, through to the introduction of television and the rise of digital media, "Aunty" (the service's nickname) has always been there to inform, educate and entertain us.

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

Obverse
Australia / Twenty Cents 2022 ABC Anniversary - 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The Queen also wears the Coronation Necklace; originally made for Queen Victoria in 1858, it was also worn at the coronations (as Queen's Consort) of Queen Alexandra in 1902, Queen Mary in 1911 and Queen Elizabeth (the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 2022 · 20 CENTS ·.

The reverse design shows the logo of the ABC at centre, surround by images representing some of its most famous programs, characters and icons dating back to 1932, when the organisation was formed. These include Rage - Australia's longest-running TV music show that is still in production, characters such as Play School's Jemima and Humpty, who have been on screen since 1966, before the advent of colour TV in this country, Four Corners - which has been broadcast for more than 60 years, Bananas in Pyjamas and many more.

Around the rim, the inscription 90 YEARS OF THE AUSTRALIAN BROADCASTING CORPORATION.
