Comments

Released by the RAM to celebrate the 2020 Tokyo Summer Olympics (Now delayed until 2021 due to Coronavirus) is this Colourised Uncirculated $1 coin. It was issued in a coincard.


The Royal Australian Mint is honoured to support our elite athletes who will be participating in the 2020 (Now 2021) Tokyo Olympic Games. The Mint’s own Olympic Ambassador is vibrant beach volleyball player, Taliqua Clancy. Clancy was Australia’s very first Indigenous beach volleyball player to participate in an Olympic Games, in 2016. This colourful 2020 $1 uncirculated coin is a great memento for sports and Olympic Games enthusiasts
