The Invisibility $1 aluminium bronze coin is the second design in The Perth Mint's Young Collectors six-coin Super Powers Series.
The Invisibility coin explores the various ways of becoming invisible, blending into our surroundings, and remaining undetected by the naked eye.
As camouflage technology advances, invisibility is becoming more of a reality.
Aluminium Bronze $1 Coin
This $1 coin is struck by The Perth Mint from high quality aluminium bronze.
Exciting New Super Power Design
The coin’s reverse depicts a coloured superhero balancing on the side of a multi-storey city building using her invisibility super power to blend into the bricks. As well as the inscription INVISIBILITY, the design also includes The Perth Mint’s traditional ‘P’ mintmark.
Australian Legal Tender
Issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965, the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the monetary denomination, and the 2014 year-date are featured on the coin’s obverse.
Unique Illustrated Presentation Card
A great gift for any budding young collector, the Invisibility coin is housed in an illustrated and informative presentation card.
Special Display Album Available
The first release in this series, Super Senses, is available in a coin album with an illustrated card cover. The album is designed to fit all six coins in this series. Please note that the coin album is not available for purchase separately.

Scientists are developing an active camouflage system that would enable military tanks to change colour to reflect the environment as they travel, changing from the desert into the jungle.
Cuttlefish have an extraordinary ability to disappear into their surroundings, and this could trigger improvements in science for paints, cosmetics, consumer electronics and military uniforms.
