Comments

This coin was one of four Aluminium-bronze coins issued by the Perth mint in 2011 to commemorate 20 years of the famous childrens performing troupe "The Wiggles".

Interestingly these $1 coins were not the usual 13.8g, 30.8mm Perth Mint Dollar coin size. They were much larger Crown coin size. The four coins were issued separately in guitar shaped coincards or together in a four coin set.
