Comments

This NCLT Aluminium-bronze coin was released by the RAM in a colourful Coincard to celebrate the Year of the Farmer.


This Australian Year of the Farmer coin celebrates the vital role Australian farmers in the agricultural industry have in providing us with food, clothing and housing. Designed by Wojciech Pietranik the reverse features linear fields of farming activities. From bales of hay to crops of wheat, sheep, cattle, pigs and poultry to the most important dam and trough water source, farmhouse and farm sheds. Sneak a close look at one of the bales of hay and you'll see Wojciech's initials, look even closer and you'll see a chicken crossing the road!
