The 2013 Young Collectors ‘Experience It!’ series features six coins, each of which portrays an outdoor sport or leisure activity in which Australian kids love to partake, with surfing being the first fun release. This invigorating water sport provides fun and fitness for people of all ages, skill levels and gender.

Aluminium Bronze $1 Coin

This $1 coin is struck by The Perth Mint from high quality aluminium bronze.

Stylish Reverse Design

The coin’s coloured reverse portrays a surf rider in a wetsuit, riding a tube wave within a sharp geometric border.  The inscription SURFING, The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark and the monetary denomination also appear in the design.

Australian Legal Tender

Issued as Australian legal tender, the coin’s obverse depicts the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the 2013 year-date.

Illustrated Presentation Card

A great gift for any budding young collector, the coin is housed in an illustrated presentation card which has fantastic illustrations and information about surfing.

As the first release in this series, this coin is available both individually in a card, and in a coin album with an illustrated card cover. The album is designed to fit all six coins in this series.

Surfing can be learnt from an early age by playing or body-surfing at the beach. This hugely popular activity is not limited to the ocean and can be enjoyed at some lakes, rivers or other tidal waters – even manmade sources such as wave pools.

There are many skills the surfer can learn, requiring the ability to control the board, ride waves and execute elaborate manoeuvres. From turns, cutbacks, carving and hanging ten, to the newer moves (borrowed from skateboarding) such as aerial stunts or ‘air’.

Forthcoming Releases: Snorkelling, Skiing, Horse Riding, Skateboarding, BMX Riding
