This 5oz silver proof coin celebrates the 150th anniversary of Australian writer and poet, Henry Lawson (1867 – 1922). Born near the gold mining centre of Grenfell in New South Wales on 17 June 1867, Lawson is widely considered to be one of the greatest poetry and short-story writers of the colonial period and a portrait of him appeared on the original $10 paper note. The design features a montage of motifs representing life in the bush as reflected in his writing – including a cattleman, swagman, cattle dog, sheep, windmill, bush hut, water butt, tent and billycans near a stream, as well as a bush fire.
