Australian Legal Tender $1 Coin
Struck by The Perth Mint from aluminium bronze, the coin is issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965, depicting the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the 2012 year-date on the coin's obverse.
A great gift for any budding young collector, the coin is housed in an illustrated and informative presentation card.
This frog goes like a rocket and is so named because of its remarkable long-jump abilities and streamlined body. Native to Australia, this astounding amphibian is often found near streams, swamps, ponds and flooded grassy areas.
