Comments

One year after the "Mob of Roos" was introduced to replace the Dollar Note the obverse of the coin was changed from the Arnold Machin second portrait design to the Raphael David Maklouf third portrait design. This obverse was in use on the MOR coin from 1985 until 1998. in 1999 the Ian Rank Broadley fourth portrait was introduced to the MOR coin.
