2003 marked the 100 year anniversary of the first opportunity to vote in Federal Australian elections for Australian women. Australian and New Zealand led the western world in providing voting rights to women, with NZ granting rights in 1893 and Australia in 1903. Rights to vote in Australian State elections began with South Australia in 1894 and right through all the states until Victoria finally came to the party in 1908. To celebrate the Centenary of these momentous events the Government of Australia authorized the minting of a special $1 coin by the RAM which was placed into circulation. This is known as the 2003 Women's Suffrage dollar. A very small number were issued in a VIP Presentation case in Uncirculated condition.
Two versions of the coin exist due to die cracking.
Small design with a long left trident prong.
Large design with a short left trident prong.
