The Royal Australian Mint issued in 1996 a National Identity Masterpieces in Silver Proof $5 Dollars, Five Coin Set with reverse designs paying tribute to people and events that have had a major influence in making us uniquely Australian. This particular coin celebrates Dame Nellie Melba.
Dame Nellie Melba (1861-1931) was during her lifetime, almost larger than life. Her glorious voice dazzled audiences in Australia, England and the USA. Her tough will and extraordinary self-confidence made her an ambivalent hero of national identity. Australians loved - and loved to criticise - their most flamboyant 'tall poppy'.
