This NCLT Aluminium-bronze $1 coin was issued by the RAM in two separate Two Coin Sets. The other coin in the Two Coin Set was a 20 cent coin (KM# 1430). The $1 was designed by RAM designer Wojciech Pietranik.

This was the Proof Set.
In 1860 the South Australian government offered a prize to whoever could traverse the Australian continent from south to north first. Explorers Burke & Wills set out to claim the prize. They led a 19 man expedition but only one man survived. This dollar coin depicts explorer King, the weary sole survivor resting under the "Dig Tree" at Coopers Creek in southwest Queensland. It also shows camel tracks depicting their route south to north and footprints symbolic of the assistance given by the Aboriginals to King prior to his return
