The razzmatazz of the Olympic Games is almost upon us.
As the excitement builds, we’ve captured the sporting mood with six new Australian $1 coins for Young Collectors.
Terrific fun, these Animal Athletes coins are all about champions of the animal world. Starting with the kangaroo – the undisputed king of boxing, they also feature the best animals at marathon, sprint, swimming, weightlifting and long jump.
Issued between now and October 2012, these fabulous collectables are struck from aluminium bronze and issued as Australian legal tender.
Designed as gifts for kids, each coin comes in a colourfully illustrated presentation card and there is also a coin display folder that keeps all six releases in mint condition!
