Released by the RAM to celebrate the 2012 Australian Open Tennis tournament this NCLT Aluminium-bronze coin was issued in a folding Coincard. It features the Men's Trophy


The Australian Open Tennis tournament is played in Melbourne and is one of four global grand slam events, the only one played in the southern hemisphere. To celebrate the 2012 competition, the hundredth men's singles championship held since 1905, two Australian legal tender one dollar coins have been released by the Royal Australian Mint. Each features the winners trophies, one women's and one men's.

A PNC was released by Australia Post that featured both coins.
