Comments

In 2008 the Royal Australian Mint introduced a new series of NCLT one dollar coins dedicated to Inspirational Australians. The sixth and final coin released and dated 2013 was issued in an unusual shaped Coincard.



This sixth coin recognises and honours Slim Dusty, known as Australia's King of Country, but born David Gordon Kirkpatrick. The name Slim Dusty has been synonymous with Australian country music for nearly seventy years. Slim Dusty had an incredible career that saw him release more than 100 albums, win dozens of song writing and recording awards as well as become the first artist to have his music broadcast from space on the 1981 Space Shuttle Columbia mission.
