Product Description

Sure to catch the eye of collectors around the world, the unique Australian $1 in this PNC carries a portrayal of Britannia upon the reverse! A powerful statement as to the deep connection felt by most Australians to the Mother Country at the outbreak of the First World War, Britain’s iconic warrior maiden is united with a depiction of Aussie troops, along with the famous words of then Prime Minister Joseph Cook – ‘when the Empire is at war, so is Australia at war’.

Britannia plays a key role in Australian currency history due to the extensive use of British coinage for more than a century after Settlement in 1788. She was of course first seen in Australia upon the broad flan of the 1797 Cartwheel Penny and Twopence – the trigger for the Currency Proclamation of 1800 – as well as the halfpennies and pennies that circulated up to the introduction of Australian copper coinage in 1911. Now, for the first time in over 100 years, Britannia has made a dramatic return to the Australian numismatic scene!
