Comments

The RAM chose this circulating Commemorative $1 coin for the introduction of the Ian Rank-Broadley 4th Portrait of Queen Elizabeth II on its obverse.

Each year the United Nations General Assembly designates a theme to help draw attention to important issues worldwide. It was declared that 1999 would be the International Year for Older Persons. The RAM issued this coin into circulation to mark the event.

The coin was included in the Uncirculated and Proof Year Sets for 1999 and was also used in the Baby Koala Mint and Proof Sets for 1999 too.

 Australia Post also issued the Coin in a PNC .


A special Dual Coin pack was issued that also included a "Last Anzacs" "C" Mintmarked coin.
