Vladimir Gottwald was a member of the Royal Australian Mint's Design and Engraving Section. His portrait, designed following the British Royal Mint's invitation for a new effigy in 1996, was among the three designs submitted to Her Majesty for approval. Although Rank-Broadley's design was eventually chosen, Gottwald's design was approved for a once only use to commemorate the Royal Visit in 2000.

Comments

Celebrating Australia Day in 2010 the Royal Australian Mint in collaboration with the Australia Day Council has released this commemorative cupro-nickel 50c coin into circulation. It wasn't until as recently as 1994 that the whole of Australia has consistently celebrated Australia Day on the 26th of January as a public holiday. It was on the 26th January 1788 that The First Fleet from England commanded by Captain Arthur Phillip landed at Sydney Cove and raised the Union Jack Flag founding the Colony of New South Wales.

A Gold plated limited edition proof version of the coin exists. See link below.
